Once it was finished, my 14-year old son took my phone to his Mac and created a video and then uploaded it to YouTube!!! I was going to do a quick voice-over but he was getting over it by that stage, so no voiceover. I did win the battle on background music though 😃
And here is the card that started it all:
I made this card for the new challenge at Art Impressions to try a new technique. My technique was using a water brush to color with Zigs. I've used paintbrushes in the past but the water brush was so much easier. Another new technique was to use Press n Seal to hold the watercolor paper onto my board. That wasn't such a good idea when you're coloring an image, but it's genius for doing watercolor backgrounds and stenciling. A great idea from Jennifer McGuire. My third new technique was filming the making of this card 😄
It was pretty simple to create, but when I stamped the sentiment directly onto the watercolor panel and then die-cut the image the sentiment was way to close too the edge and didn't look nice. To fix that mistake I added a white-embossed banner (all of this is left in the video!).
I'm also going to link this to the "New" challenges at Just Us Girls and Sweet Stampin' as this stamp set is new to me plus I was inspired by the blues and whites over at The Heart Desires.
Thanks so much for visiting!
