I am hosting a live in person card class locally for the first time October 11th. To prep for class I did a complete run through of both cards on Camera. This was the first one I recorded and figured I would share it with all my subscribers on YouTube. I love watching and learning from others and I figured some of you might like it too. If you want to follow along and create with me, you most certainly can! This one is minimal on supplies so any coffee style mug would work and any papers and coordinating colors of ink will make a great card. If fall isn't your cup of tea or coffee in this case make it for winter, spring, maybe a cup of lemonade for summer or some cold brew- I'm all for coffee hot, cold, luke warm, any day of the given year. Use what you have on hand and enjoy the process with me!
Check back on the blog and on YouTube on October 11th for the video tutorial. Find the YouTube Tutorial HERE!
Products I used to create my card:
Lawn Fawn's Pumpkin Spice Stamp and Coordinating Die Set
Stamped with watercolor friendly ink -- Archival, LF Jet Black, or Pigment Ink should all work. (I would heat set the Pigment and add a clear emboss before setting it.- but that's just my preference.) For Class I used a Bristol Vellum heavy stock, but Bristol Smooth, Watercolor, of Distress Multimedia heavy stock will all work well. Anything that works well with watercolor. If watercolor isn't for you, use color pencil, alcohol markers, markers, zig, and adjust ink and paper accordingly.
Lawn Fawn's Inside/ Out Stitched Scalloped Rectangles Die-cuts (Second smallest)(2 1/4"x 3 1/2")
Lawn Fawn's 4-Bar Stitched Rectangles (3 1/4"x 4 1/2")
Pattern Paper of Choice- for class I used an old CTMH pattern I had multiples of on hand, but I included the link to the Doodle Bug Pumpkin Spice 6x6 because I love that one for this card. Distress Inks in Dried Marigold, Forest Moss, Vintage Photo, Black Soot
(Switch out your Orange and Green with whatever color theme you want. If you don't have Vintage Photo use a different brown. The Black can be traded with whatever as it really is only the shaker top and maybe the shading on the whipped)
Smaller paint brush. I used a round 8 or 10, smaller like a 6 or 4 would work better for fine detail. I just have a steadier hand and the 8 was close at hand.
Small sponge dauber or blending brush/tool.
Some embellishments- I used Diamond Dots in an orangish brown, but any small sprinkle style embellishment could work. Or the sprinkle stamp from the set, glitter, glitter glue/ drops.
Adhesives- Glue, taper runner, foam adhesives.
The Coloring guide: Note for the most seamless blend work quickly with wet layers. If you like the splotchy traditional watercolor look like the second image, let it dry between layers. Adding in the dots for detail in the shaker adds texture and can be used to add details and shading on the mug as well. Experiment with different styles and looks. And don't worry if you go out of the lines, it's watercolor after all. (water and a dry towel work as a great eraser if you are quick enough.)
