Are you new to watercoloring for card makers? Watercoloring with Stampin Up inks & a waterbrush is much easier than it seems! I love the illustrative style of the balloons on this Honeycomb Happiness stamp set that is one of the FREE stamp sets for Sale A Bration 2016.
Stamping the balloon images in Stayzon black ink, I added Soft Sky ink to the sky for a background, then colored the balloons with Blushing Bride and adding a touch of Smoky Slate to the bows.
The absolutely-to-die-for new Blushing Bride glimmer paper tiny dot accents and heart I punched out with the owl punch – I love how versatile the Owl Builder punch is! The super nifty little honeycomb embellishment is new to the Stampin Up in the Occasions 2016 catalog. They come in 3 different colors: Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron and the white as pictured below.
Stampin Up always comes out with such great releases and I can’t wait for you all to see the new Sale-A-Bration mini catalog, and of course, the Occasions Spring Mini catalog.
Don’t forget to stop by again soon ~ the video for this project will be available on my YouTube channel after January 5th 😉
