Start to Finish: No Line Watercoloring with Channin

No line watercoloring allows you to create a watercolor masterpiece that does not look like it came from a stamped image!

Channin shares how to do this fun technique using Tombow markers and the Bouquet Builder 5 Stamp Set. Check out the video here:

ATC Layers Die with JJ

The ATC Layers Die can be used to quickly and easily make ATC's, but you can also use it to layer on a card. JJ used two of the scallop rectangles to create the focal image on her card and house her sentiment.

Swatch Out Your Watercolor Pens with Keeway

Swatch Out Your Watercolor Pens with Keeway

We are thrilled that everyone is excited for our Color Swatch release this month. Keeway used the Combo Swatch Tag to die cut several tags out of watercolor paper. On each tag, she stamped the 3 partitioned image from Color Combos Stamp Set and created 3 vertical columns. Below it, she stamped 3 lines using the Bullet List Stamp Set. She used each of these tags to swatch 3 colors at a time and then wrote in the colors used in the bullet list lines below it.

We love the idea of swatching out our watercolor pens!

Colored Pencils on Navy Cardstock with the Bouquet Builder 5 Combo

Colored Pencils on Navy Cardstock with the Bouquet Builder 5 Combo

Hi everyone! Welcome back to more inspiration with the August 2019 release! For today's card, Rebecca used the Bouquet Builder 5 Stamp Set. She stamped the main bouquet image with white pigment ink on navy cardstock and colored it in with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. She used the matching dies to cut it out and layered it over some gold foil cardstock that she had die cut with the Horizontal Stripes die. She used a sentiment from the Big Dots Sentiment Stamp Set and heat embossed it with some Imagine Emboss Sparkling Champagne cardstock. The pencils and gold really pop on the navy cardstock!

Thanks for stopping by!

Abstract Background with Keeway

Keeway used the Watercolor Swatches stamp set to create this awesome abstract background. She stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder and then stamped and embossed again slightly offset from the original. She watercolored in the rectangles to create her pretty sea scene. The adorable mermouse from Make Waves and her fish friends complete the scene!
