Augmenting No-Line Watercolor Video Tutorial

*Compensated affiliate links used where possible at zero cost to you. No posts are ever sponsored or paid.*

Hi friends! 

I'm coming to you today with an idea that was one of those "I should have had a V8" moments - using layering floral stamps for augmenting no-line watercolor. 

I'm using this STUNNING new kit from Gina K, with a gorgeous layering lotus image designed by her daughter Alicia. I stamped it in Whisper, painted it with Daniel Smith and then added the layering image - I LOVE the contrast between no line and this dotted detail layer. And then in the background - I painting Cascade Green onto Palette Paper to get this special pigment to separate and granulate beautifully - I'll explain that in the video. Such a peaceful, balanced image.


Then I went in a completely different direction with the same image just to show you the range, and I zentangled it! I then used the matching dies and masking magic to mask the image and I created a rainbow with Passionate Pink, Tangerine Twist, Wild Dandelion, Key Lime and Blue Raspberry inks and the Fizzy stencil that's in this kit. So fun and happy. 


So here's what all comes in this adorable kit


Here's what I did with the adorable sushi set. And I LOVE dumplings. Literally one of my favorite foods, so I had to stamp a few of those little cuties out and add two of the sentiments. If you look at the dies above, I think they'd be really cute even without any stamping, so I'm going to try that this weekend. 


And last but not least, this GORGEOUS new sentiment set. Wow. The background is a preview of tomorrow's Gel Press Video!


So here's the video on the first card, or click here to view on YouTube! Full supply list below!

Minecraft Inspired Birthday Card + Giveaway

*Compensated affiliate links used where possible at zero cost to you. No posts are ever sponsored or paid.*

I inherited my love of graph paper from my dad. I have so much graph paper. I'd snatch it up first if the house were on fire. 

So all things grid grab me in a big way.

Also, I know LITERALLY nothing about Minecraft except that I've seen its grid style used by my mom friends whose kids love it, so I love it just for that, and that's what inspired today's card and video.

I'm using Altenew's new Mixed Media Inks today - a beautiful set of pigment inks that are permanent when heat set on a lot of surfaces - but what I love about pigment inks is what I loved when I started stamping - DARE I SAY 40 YEARS AGO - the coverage. I just love how they stamp - especially on brand spanking new photopolymer stamps and solid images like the one I'm using.

So I used them on this amazing Checkerboard set to create a birthday card for my friend Kat who is my game buddy in Pokemon Go! I'm glad we haven't discovered Minecraft, actually because we'd probably obsess over it. I used Coral Berry and Frayed Leaf for this - the ink bundle has a decidedly floral/botanical theme, as you'll see below.


Here's what the bundle looks like - OH MY GOODNESS the color combos. Now I want a big cabbage stamp for that green combo. So pretty.
Here is my video of today's card!




Here are all the supplies I used today.

Introducing The Aunt Farm

*Compensated affiliate links used where possible at zero cost to you. No posts are ever sponsored or paid.*

So since we can no longer craft together, my sister and I came up with a way to craft together virtually via videos. We decided we would get together and do non-paper crafts - cooking, sewing etc. just for fun, and so I'm adding a new playlist to my YouTube channel with these collab videos! 

Today's intro video is just a fun walkthrough of the apocalypse sash I made for myself. I figure if I have to go through all these things, I should totally get patches for apocalyptic achievements like when I was in Girl Scouts. And trust me, the sash filled up quickly and it's only August.

So if you don't see a video below, you can watch it here. All the patches are listed below and on YouTube. Enjoy!
