Watercolor Card Video Tutorial :)

Hi everyone!! :)  Hope your week has started off great.
I was at the doctor most of the day. Spent most of the time waiting. Don't feel so good but I hope it passes. Having some tests done and seeing a specialist to get a check up on my heart. I have a minor heart condition but lately its been acting up so I needed to have some testing done to make sure everythings ok. And I have to carry a monitor with me for a couple weeks. Im praying all is well and that it may be just stress or something.

Anyhoo ... I have gotten a few requests for a tutorial on my watercolor cards I did HERE, and since my husband has been fussing at me to use my FLIP I got for Christmas I thought I would do my first ever video!!

So without further ado, here is my first video (Im a little nervous ;) I hate my voice so thats why I never do any videos but my hubby wants me to use his gift LOL so please excuse my horrible voice!

In my video I am using the Large Solid Flower stamp from Hero Arts and Tim Holtz Distress Inks!


And here are the cards I created with this technique:


This one I made using the colors I showed in the video.


This card I did for last months Hero Arts contest - Birthday's and Envelopes!

ps: I will be back with a winner for the Color Cubbie giveaway!!

Thanks for watching! :) :) :)

I agree with the majority - you did a FABULOUS job and your voice was clear and your instructions easy to follow. One question. Did you use watercolor paper or regular cardstock?

Simone said...

Awesome video Jenny! Love both of these cards! Gotta try that technique now! :)

Jennifer said...

Very nice video, Jenny! Smiling here with your comment on your voice and having to use your gift :) I feel the same way when I hear my voice over a recording - "Is that what I really sound like!" I enjoyed hearing you :) My husband also gets me "technology" and then urges me to try it after it has sat around for some time...lol.

Beautiful cards - thanks for sharing!
