Video – CYCI # 84 Watercoloring with Barnyard Babies

10626579_10206336191739073_7437091439901572993_nToday I am super excited to share this card and how it  came to be.

If you have been following my blog, you know that I like to participate in various challenge blogs. These blogs post a sketch (or color scheme) and then you are encouraged to stamp and share your interpretation of that sketch. Can You Case It is one of those a weekly challenge blogs. This past week I was invited to serve as one of their Design Team Members! What an honor! I’m stoked!

Here’s my interpretation of Sketch Challenge #84.

IMG_6074Tips for Watercoloring:
Shimmery White Cardstock – This paper is exceptional for watercoloring. Its smooth, shimmering surface has a coating which affords you some time to manipulate the paint before it sets into the cardstock.
Aqua Painters – These water-filled “paintbrushes”make painting a breeze. You get two to a pack which is a great bargain. And the super awesome quality of these pens is that they never dry out. You simply add more water to the barrel as needed.
Stampin’ Up Classic Ink Pads – Just squeeze the closed lid of your ink pad and you create a paint pallette on the inside of the lid.

Thanks for stopping by Amy’s Inklings! Be sure to head over to Can You Case It to see how other stampers are interpreting this week’s sketch.
