|Hello Friends, How are you? I am finding that I just can’t keep up with the weeks passing so quickly. I did find some time to make another video about water coloring with Tombow watercolor markers & my favorite Penny Black butterfly . I feel like I have more control with a Blender pen & Tombow’s blender pen rather than with a paint brush. I created the video especially for Simon Says Stamp and I hope you find it useful.|

|These papers are so delicious and look so beautiful with the Tombow colors. The first layer was stamped and distressed. (You will find the colors I used at the bottom of the post in the supply list.) I love to layer these sentiments from SRM stickers. To layer sentiments at varying heights I like to use to different kinds of pop dots. This and this and I guarantee that you will use both.|
I have created so many cards using Tombow’s water color markers. If you would like to see a few of them click here, here, here & here.
|Just to remind you that each post will have a simpler version of my first card and this is my simple. When I colored this butterfly it was much faster because I did less shading on this butterfly than the the first butterfly (and what you see in the video). Do you like how the sentiment pops on this card?|
|I always trace over the antenna’s lines to thicken them that way they are much easier to cut out.|
|These butterflies have a spot in the video too. For these babies I embossed the images on water color paper. In the video I explain that I would rather use this paper. I just like the look better for some reason. BUT, you need to be more careful so I caution you 🙂|
|If you are careful and don’t over saturate your paper you get this look …the look that I like. It looks like the paper is ready to pill (ball up) It’s sort of a velvety, slightly nubby texture rather than the smooth texture that the paper has. Do you think I am crazy?? If you try this please send me a link to your card because I would love to see it 🙂|
|Just had to share this angle so you can see the pretty floral Basic Grey paper inside. Such an elegant 6×6 paper pack. Have a happy weekend and thanks for popping in. Hugs, Kathy
