Hey friends!
I've been a demonstrator with Stampin'Up! since 2011. I'm located in Bozeman, Montana, but have customers all over the country. I have a very fun and active downline called "Big Sky Stampers" and we get together in person and online to share what we love. My blog posts feature what I'm up to recently and I try to share new product information, tips and tricks and creative inspiration. You can shop from this site or find out more information about our products and becoming a demonstrator! Thanks for stopping by!

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!
