Hello, everyone! Here I am again with another one layer mixed media card. I used Memento dye inks, acrylic paint, gesso, and Derwent Inktense Blocks, and I used watercoloring techniques. I’m thrilled about this card because I managed to shoot a video of it in one take! (I didn’t have time to really plan out the steps because I only had an hour until I needed to go to town with DH and MIL so I had to hurry up and basically wing most of it.) Last night, while I was playing with watercolors on my sketch book, I accidentally found an easy way to paint tulips. You’re going to have to watch the video to see, though ;o) It took about 25 minutes to create this card, but the video is a fast-forward version like the previous videos I did for my other one layer mixed media cards (you’ll find them all here). This one’s just under 10 minutes, captioned, and accompanied by another Mozart. Watch the YouTube video tutorial HERE. I hope you enjoy it and become inspired by it!
And…it’s the first Friday of March, which means it’s time for a new monthly challenge on the STAMPlorations blog! Our theme this month is STAMPS & SPRING, so we’d love to see spring-inspired projects. Check out the inspiration projects that the STAMPlorations girls created for the challenge and then come join us! We’re joined by guest designer, Doerthe.
