Watercolor Hack - Video Tutorial

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

I have such a fun hack for your Friday. A simple watercolor medium you probably already have + some adorable gnomes

I have two cards for you today - both feature this gnome stamp set, but one is colored with my favorite, regular writing gel pens - yes - regular gel pens - and one with Karin Markers. Both super fun. And yes I used a bunny gnome for a Christmas card. It's 2020. Nothing matters anymore. 

Here's the gel pen card - look how well they blend with water!

Same gnome, but this time no-line, with my beloved Karin markers
The sentiments for both cards are from this stamp set.

Fun, right? Here is the video, or click here to watch it on YouTube.
