I’ve got a few giveaways currently going on…a Starbucks giveaway to celebrate the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and a watercolor giveaway showcasing the awesome Daniel Smith watercolors! Hope you’ll check them out! ?
Good morning! Today I’m excited to share my first attempt at entering a video challenge! Videos are still a new and slightly daunting adventure for me but I am very encouraged by all your kind comments and support! So here goes!
The theme for the challenge is Anything Goes so I created a spring-themed floral watercolor card with Altenew stamps and Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers!
I started off by stamping the flowers onto watercolor paper with Versafine and heat-embossing them with clear embossing powder. Next I used my Zig markers and a waterbrush to color the flowers. While they were drying I stamped and heat-embossed the hummingbird from Altenew’s Orikami on gold shimmer cardstock and fussy cut him. I ran a black marker around the edges of the hummingbird to create a finished look! I also stamped the sentiment from Orikami on a long vellum strip and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder. I adhered the ends of the vellum strip to the back of the watercolor panel so that the adhesive wouldn’t show. Then I adhered the hummingbird with foam mounting tape for a little more dimension. Finally to add some sparkle I added a few Glass Slippers Sparkling Clear sequins!
I love using Zigs to watercolor! The color blends amazingly well on quality watercolor paper and creates beautifully dimensional results! So that’s my card! I hope you’ll head over and watch the full video! 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
