    Watercolour stamping with Pinkfresh Studio + video

    Hello everyone so I tried again, video 2 now on YT.  Lighting issues plagued this one argh, but they take so long to make and edit etc that I am subjecting you to it anyway, lol.  Seriously tho I hope you will give it a watch, I cover watercolouring directly on your stamps and different ways you can achieve a messy Watercolor look.  I also cover stacked die cuts and have a ‘hidden’ die cut sentiment.

    You are Turtley Awesome

    Hi friends, I just received this cute turtle stamp from heffy doodle and had to play with it straight away. Firstly I found this fab stamp by Mama Elephant called modern borders, it may be retired now, and thought the scallop would make a great looking sea. I used my tim holtz stamping platform to help stamp my ‘sea’ with Altenew inks in shades of blue. Next I stamped my turtle with memento tuxedo black ink which is Copic friendly, fussy cut it and did some quick and easy colouring. Then I trimmed down my scallop panel and used my tim holtz knife to create little flaps around the waves…

The sentiment is also by Pinkfresh Studio and is embossed on a pearlised blue…
