  1. Wow! What an amazing technique! I can’t wait to try it. You come up with the best techniques. Thanks for sharing with us!

  2. What a great technique! Like you I’m not good at water coloring but love the look. I will definitely be giving this technique a try. Thanks for all the tips and for sharing this idea! As for the cards, it’s a toss up between the red and the green with a slight edge to the red.

  3. What a wonderful technique! I also struggle with water-coloring and this works so well! I love the richness of the red and green side strips, so that’s my vote! Thanks for the videos you do so well!

  4. OMG! GENIUS technique! How did you come up with this??? The green foliage looks fantastic, and I would never be able to get that red portion to be so “organic”. AMAZING! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    I think the red edging with gold stripe makes the pointsettia pop off the page- GORGEOUS!

    —could you demonstrate, in a future video, how to use the Brother Scan and Cut? any tips and tricks you may have would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

  5. Dear Jennifer – I have never seen this technique and I love it. I will have to give it a try! I love all of the cards, esp the two w/ the red and green strips up the side. Glad I ordered this set.
    TFS!!
