Faux Watercoloring Video

Yeah! I finally have a video for you.
When I saw this technique on Dena Rekow’s blog, I knew I had to give it a try. OMG! So fun and easy to do.

Check out all my cards. This is the one I demoed on my video and uses Cajun Craze.

See all the Gold Wink of Stella, the splatters too. I just love that!

This one uses Cajun Craze as well. The sentiment comes from the Paisley and Posies stamp set. Love the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer paper too.

Watermelon Wonder is what I used for this card and Clear Wink of Stella on the leaves and a little splattered Gold Wink of Stella. Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper was used for the leaf. Sentiment is from the Tin of Cards stamp set.

Old Olive Ink and Gold Glimmer Paper for the leaf. Sentiment comes from the Suite Sayings.

Delightful Dijon and Gold Glimmer Paper, Rose Wonder Stamp set is where the sentiment comes from.

This one is for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Rose Red and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, also Clear Wink of Stella, with a little Gold Wink of Stella.

I hope you enjoyed all of my cards. I know I had so much fun making them. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
