Watercolor Sympathy Card

Today, I'm showcasing this brand new, gorgeous butterfly stamp from So Suzy Stamps, part of the new August release.  I'm pairing it with one of my favorite sympathy sentiments, as well.  I've also prepared a 2 minute video that shows you how to watercolor using water based markers.  Lots of good stuff in store for you today!




But first, if you stopped in from Suzy's blog, I promised a bonus tip on those gorgeous splatters and here it is......

BONUS TIP:  Heat set your watercolor splatters (use a heat craft tool/gun) to get a darker, more intense color.   Do not blot with paper towel.    You can simply swipe your marker on a craft mat, grab your color with a very wet water brush and place the droplets anywhere you like on your card by gently "dotting" your card.  Mixed media or watercolor paper is recommended for water coloring.


Click on my YouTube link below for a speedy quick 2 minute coloring process video.  I would so appreciate it if you would subscribe to my channel and give me a thumbs up on the video.  Leave me a comment, if you like, as well.  You will also find product links under the video description if you'd like to save and shop later.  Shopping links are also available at the bottom of this post.   Thank you so much for stopping in today!
