Water Colour Techniques

Kia Ora Koutou

Today I want to share a video tutorial that I have made to water colour some images from Stampin Up.  I have used Gansai Tambi Pearl Paints and Bockingford 300 gsm paper for my images.  I have purchased the Lovely Lattice stamp set from Stampin Up in order to practice my colouring techniques.  However, I was sorely missing a coordinating die to die cut the image for cards.

 

And here is an image painted on Creative Expressions watercolour paper.

I hope I have inspired you to have a go at water colour painting.

A Clean and Simple Easel Card

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I am sharing a very clean and simple easel card featuring the very beautiful Anja’s Oval Die – LR0376 from Marianne Designs.

This die set is so versatile and so easy to create stunning cards.  I love the beautiful embossing that you get with the dies and how these dies can be layered in so many ways.  I have also kept this card very simple with the use of some pearls for the easel to sit against rather than adding an extra raised layer on the base of the card.  And of course I have to finish the card with Heartfelt Creations flowers and leaves.  I have used the following products:

Marianne Designs – LR0376 Anja’s Oval Die

Heartfelt Creations – Oakberry Lane Blossoms stamp, die and mold, Leafy Accents stamp, die and mold

Ranger Archival inks – Buttercup, Vibrant Fuchsia, Magenta Hue, Leaf Green, Fern Green, Library Green

Heart of Gold Prills
