Good evening, all! Long time, no see! It has been a hectic (but fun) week around my house to kick off the new year. My hubby is the drama director at one of the local high schools and his production of Bye Bye, Birdie opened last weekend. It is his first musical and it is absolutely AMAZING!! Everyone involved has put in so much hard work and it's really fun to watch it all pay off with a fabulous show! But, needless to say, with me running box office and our kiddo playing a part in the show there has been little time for video editing and blog posts. So I'm finally getting around to posting this project that I made over a week ago!
This card shows off the Close to My Heart watercolors and Diamonds Are Forever stamp set. I really love this stamp set and was excited to ink it up for this nice and easy, yet eye-catching, card. This design is pretty much a no-brainer. Just stamp whatever image you'd like in some white embossing powder and then watercolor right over the top for a really fun pop of white amongst the vibrant color!
When using the CTMH watercolors be aware that these paints are thicker than a lot of the watercolor mediums I've worked with. This is a great quality for getting really highly pigmented color and if you're after that softer, more ethereal watercolor look just add more water! This makes the set really versatile!
Hopefully now that the play is underway I can settle into more of a crafty routine. My goal for 2016 is a minimum of 2 to 3 videos per week, so my TupeloDesignsLLC video on Friday and then at least one additional video each week. In addition, I am going to try and do more projects that only have a blog post. I'm hoping this will encourage me to create more know I don't have to commit to the full video/editing/posting process each time. I'd love to enter more challenges this year and grow my crafty friend base! After all, the interaction with you all is a huge part of why I do this!
Also, keep your eyeballs peeled for a GIVEAWAY in the next few days. Today is the 6 month anniversary of my YouTube channel and I have over 2,000 subscribers! I am truly awestruck by you all and the support you give. So to say thank you, I wanna give away some stuff! So that is coming soon! I hope you enjoyed today's project! There are still all kinds of January promotions going on at TupeloDesignsLLC so make sure you check that out! Until next time! Bye!
