Watercoloring Ideas Blogging Friends Blog Hop

Stampin Up SaleABration Blog Hop

Who are the ‘Blogging Friends’?  It is a small community of bloggers formed by Crystal Komara almost two years ago. We are all Stampin’ Up! demonstrators located across the U.S. and Canada who have never met before.  Well, actually, we haven’t met in person yet However, through our common bond of Stampin’ Up! and a shared love of papercrafting we have created a fun  blog hop. Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created!

This month I am featuring the use of the Stamp Set Hey, Chick. I am also using Watercolor Paper, Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pens, and Aqua Pens.


Hey, Chick

Watercoloring ideas using products by Stampin Up.

I really love how this card turned out. It is super simple, yet lovely! To color the chicken, I used Stampin’ Up Watercolor Pencils in Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay, and Mambo Pink. I then used the Blender Pens to blend out the color.

For the background, again I using the Watercolor Pencils, I used Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, and Real Red. I then used my Aqua Pen to give it the watercolor effect.

  1. Great card Jodi, still love that cute chick!

  2. I love this stamp set! My favorite from the Sale-a-bration catalog. I love how your background turned out. It’s light and even. I need to practice more using the pencils for my background like this. Oh and love your color combo for the chick:)
