DT Project feat Prima Marketing and Watercoloring


Hello everyone!  Welcome back to the Kraftgali Blog!  Today we are playing with this beautiful stamp set from Prima Marketing which has the most whimsical and fun feel and is perfect for water coloring. I stamped out my image using VersaMark ink and then heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder.  I'm using Canson XL Watercolor paper since I will be doing some watercoloring with Inktense Pencils.  This card was so fun to make and I got to practice this technique, which is always needed!  When you heat emboss your image, you create an area for the water color to sit and it makes it easier to work with.  That is a huge help as a beginner watercolorist!  Once the image was completed, I cut it out and then decided to use an excessive amount to foam mounting tape to make it stand out on my card!  Before I laid it down, I took to some Distress inks and covered my Bristol Smooth cardstock with a faded-out look.  This really brightened up the card and gave it the Spring look I was going for!  (Speaking of...don't forget to "Spring" forward this weekend with your clocks for daylight savings time!
We are also doing a really fun giveaway on the channel!  Comment below the video on YouTube and share with us which new things you want to add to your stash this Spring!  There are a lot of wonderful new products in the shop to get us in the crafty mood.

See-through Circle Card with Lawn Fawn's Slow Down and Enjoy by Mary Polanco

Hello everyone!  I'm so glad you are crafting with us as we have a blast with this super easy, but WOW card!  Today's card features Lawn Fawn's Slow Down and Enjoy Stamps.  I started off the card by stamping and coloring the elephant from the Lawn Fawn Slow Down and Enjoy stamp set. I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color them in both warm greys and cool greys.  (I'm saving the warm grey elephant for a future project).
Once my coloring was complete, I worked on the background and made it as simple as I could.   First I ink blended Distress Oxide in Worn Lipstick to get an ombre look.  Then I put a Hero Arts Stencil over it to get a tone on tone look.  Lastly, I spritzed the panel with water to get a more distressed look.  Once complete I used a circle die to cut through the inked up panel as well as the Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock.
I placed the front and back of my elephant together using foam dots and nestled him into the circle.  I finished off the card by …
