Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting

I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!

Baby Card - Watercolor pencils Technique #5

I hope you are enjoying the different ideas I have presented with watercolor pencils. Here's another fun one that requires Stampin'Up! Irresistably Floral Designer Series paper and a blender pen with your watercolor pencils.

The white paper is a little hard to see, but it is an embossed paper designed to be daubed, sponged, or whatever. I had a brainstorm and grabbed it for the watercolor pencil techniques. For this technique, you color fairly firmly on some scratch paper. I like to use the Stampin'Up! grid paper under all my projects. Then, you take a blender pen and pick up color from your scribbled blot of color on the scratch paper and color on the white Irresistably Yours DSP.  I chose the diamond pattern and cut the size down to 3 x 3. This is a bit time consuming so I would recommend a smaller piece as an accent and not the whole back of a card, unless you want to. The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory. Because I'm right handed, all my color strokes go from SW to NE on a compass. I would anticipate if you were left handed, it would be the opposite! Here's a peek at my scratch sheet!

(By the way, I used up some retired ribbon that coordinated with my color scheme so I can't offer those in the supply list below.) I have my watercolor pencil class in an hour so I have to scoot!  Come back later today for Technique #6-- it's another one I came up with on my own and you don't want to miss it!

Yay! It's Friday!
