watercolour smooshing easter card | video tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog.

Easter is fast approaching - 5 April 2015, so over the next two weeks I will have some cards and paper creations to share with you. You can subscribe to my blog and monthly newsletter by links on the right sidebar.

Today as promised I am here with a video tutorial for watercolour smooshing using Stampin' Up! Write Markers. Last week I shared a card with this effect and originally I followed a tutorial on a MakeitMonday challenge by Papertrey Ink. This is the stamp set that I am using today ~

In the video I show you two backgrounds created using this set and the Stampin' Up! In Colour 2014/16 set of Stampin' Write markers and the 2013/15 set of Stampin' Write markers. This is the card that I went on to finish ~

This one uses the 2013/15 markers and the French equivalent of the Happy Easter Bunny stamp - this stamp set in English is wood mount and it is awesome. It is also available in German in clear mount.

There are so many ways you can use this set, as an outline stamp it can be coloured or painted or it could be heat embossed as I have done above.

To construct my card I have die cut the panel using an oval die and then die cut a larger oval. These panels have been popped on foam adhesive for dimension and then some butterflies added, the large one is a slider that can pass around the oval space in the card front.

Here is my video showing the smooshing effect, you can watch here or at YouTube (watch in HD!) and please give me a thumbs up if you like it and would like to see more videos from me ~

Here is my supply list, remember each 60€/£45 spend gives you a free item from the Sale-a-Bration goodies! You still have time to order this beautiful stamp set and create with it in time for Easter!
