Hand Painted Watercolor Effect. Stampin' Up! Cards.

You can still Watercolour using a black outline, even if the inked image isn't waterproof! Here I use Tuxedo Memento Ink , instead of a waterproof ink, and colour the image to give a soft, blurred-edge effect. It looks more hand-painted than stamped, and gives a painterly effect to your card.

Stamp Art Journal "Helena" Easy Mixed Media Art.

I love art journalling. In this process video, I take you step-by-step through the creation of "Helena" in this double page spread.  It's an opportunity to experiment and play with lots of messy textures, colours and techniques. My favourite part of this piece is the gold paint splattered in the background.
