How-To Video: Watercoloring with Ink


Got a video for you!  It is very stamping-oriented – hope that is ok.  A more scrapbooking-oriented video will be coming soon.

I did this video long ago to go with a card I put on the Hero Arts blog.  Here it is…

Spending some time looking at the blogs you all mentioned.  Thanks for the links!  I will post some of them next week for everyone to see.  Thanks!  

Good night…

    Jennifer, I love the whole “masking” technique but when I think of doing it, I kinda get “mentally challenged.” I forget which part I’m masking…it’s actually quite hilarious to see happen. I once took a stamping class where masking was one of the techniques used and the instructor actually had to come over and show me exactly how to do it step by step. Why the block do you think? I don’t know…all I know is that it looks really simple and then when it comes time for me to try it..I find myself talking out loud step by step..can you believe I am responsible for small children and at times even aloud to operate heavy machinery like a car? Just kidding…

    Stamping oriented is more than OK, heehee! ;) I love the slightly different look you got by using the chalk inks to watercolor. Another must-try idea. :)

  13. That is an awesome technique!!! I love techniques that are so simple but look complicatted! ;)

    What is the name of that ribbon that you use and where can I find some? I have looked everywhere. I had some just like it that I got years ago and I loved it but i can’t seem to find it anymore. Happy Sunday! :)
