Watch It Wednesday

I am so excited.  I have a video featured on the Hero Arts blog today.  And it's all about colouring. :)
Here are the cards I feature in the video, both showcasing THIS stunning stamp - so many possibilities with this one!
First, this card.    Love THIS new Eggshell layering paper.  Yum.  I also used the Old Letter Writing digikit to create the background for this card.  I recolored it pale pink then printed it onto Carnation layering paper.
And then this one.  This was inspired by THIS masterpiece by Jennifer McGuire.  I stamped and embossed THIS gorgeous new text stamp to create the background here.  And the sentiment is from THIS cute set.
Supplies: All stamps, images and Paper - Hero Arts; Spellbinders dies; sewing machine; Copics - R32, YG06, B93, G07; Coloured pencils - Faber Castell; Corner rounder.
And here is the video: (If you click on it, you can watch a larger version..)

Happy Wednesday everyone. x

Lovely!!
I knew I could use pencils after my Copics, but I didn't know I could use Copics afterwards on coloured pencils.
I love learning new tricks :)

Jill said...

The cards are both stunning and your video is top notch! You do such a nice job explaining and your ideas make Copics seem much more approachable! :)
