All My Love - Watercoloured Heart

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. When I saw the All my Love stamp set from Concord & 9th I thought it would be a beautiful stamp to watercolour with heat embossing. This technique is great for small stamps like this where you may struggle to keep within the lines or where you struggle painting small designs.

Watercolour Bleed background - Altenew  Sketch Floral & Watercolour 36 Pan set

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. Watercolour is one of my favourite colouring mediums to use when it comes to floral stamps. But when it came to the background, I wanted a soft wash as though the watercolours from the flowers were bleeding out. Watercolour bleed background technique allows you to softly build colour around the flowers in the background before going back in to define the flowers.  Video Tutorial Watercolour Bleed background: Written and photos Watercolour Bleed background: The stamp set I'm using is the Altenew Sketchy Floral stamp set and has a lovely large floral...

Simple Watercolour Card Using Mama Elephant's "Flying With Friends" Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!Today I'm sharing a simple card using the "Flying With Friends" stamp set from Mama Elephant!

I stamped the elephant on the left first using Ranger Archival Jet Black ink and created a mask for him before stamping my second elephant sitting next to him. I coloured my images and created a soft background for them using my Altenew...
