Hello everyone, Carolyn Peeler with you today! From the amount of "SOLD OUT" items in the shop I can see that, like me, many of you enjoyed last Tuesday's Julie Ebersole for Ellen Hutson Essentials stamp and die release. I was honored to take part in the release blog hop where I showcased a card featuring the "Mondo Hydrangea" stamp set. My card used vellum and Copic markers to achieve a watercolored look. Due to the amount of questions I received, I decided to make a video demoing the process. So, without further introduction, check out the tutorial below!
And here are some close ups of the cards:
Check out the shimmer on the surface of the hydrangea. It is so pretty! It was added with the Wink of Stella Clear Marker and now the flower matches the shimmery blue background (which unfortunately doesn't really show up in the still photo - you can see it a bit better in the video) which was made using Daniel Smith PrimaTek watercolors in Kyanite Genuine and Blue Apatite Genuine. The yellow flowers were colored with Copic markers in the following colors: Y17, YR04 and YR14. The stem was colored with YG25.
And here, once again, is the blue Hydrangea card which was the original card I made for the blog hop last week.
While I recognize that the "Mondo Hydrangea" Stamp set that I used for these flowers is currently sold out, I would encourage you to try this technique with other stamps you have in your collection, and, if you're interested in this specific stamp, be sure to add your email in the box on the "Mondo Hydrangea" product page at the Ellen Hutson shop to be notified when the stamp is back in stock.
If you have any questions, please leave them in the comment section and I will reply as soon as I can. Thanks so much for joining me today.
As I sign off, here are the direct links to the products used in today's cards.
