Wild at Heart on HSN Wednesday, May 2nd!

Crafter’s Companion is coming back to the Home Shopping Network on Wednesday, May 2, with lots of fabulous new crafting goodies! Among them are the new Spectrum Noir AquaTint watercolor paint pens. They are gorgeous colors in a new styled pen that includes a bristle brush, perfect for brushing and blending the watercolor ink.

Also coming are some beautiful new stamp sets, including this Wild at Heart stamp set, which was stamped here as a second-generation stamp (first stamped on a separate sheet and then stamped on the actual watercolor cardstock for a lighter impression), and then watercolored with the AquaTint pens. For portions of the image, I first scribbled the watercolor ink on an acrylic block and used a Crafter’s Companion waterbrush to pick up the color and apply it to the image. For the darker portions of the flowers and leaves, I colored directly on the image with the AquaTint pens. The floral border die is an oldie but goodie Die’sire Edge’ables Floral Dance die.

Saving for a Rainy Day

How fun and versatile are the new Spectrum Noir Colorista watercolor paper pads and pencils?!? They make it so easy to upcycle things like this cute bank that I found at the local dollar store.

The background paper is from the new Spectrum Noir Colorista Aqua range, which I’ve colored using the Colorista Aqua watercolor pencils and the fabulous water brushes from Crafter’s Companion. The paper has gorgeous resist embossing areas, as well as foil accents that really make a statement. Here I’ve trimmed a section of the paper down and used it as the backer inside the bank. Who wouldn’t enjoy saving their pennies in a beautiful bank like this? ūüôā

Timeless

I just love this Chastity Steampunk¬†image from Scrapper’s Delights, and the sentiment from the Crafter’s Companion¬†Vintage Floral Collection Sentimentals Sentiments Rubber Stamp Set was the perfect fit for the theme of the image.

I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers. The ribbon threading die on the left side is the¬†Die’sire Classiques Ribbon Threading die. ¬†The sentiment stamp was stamped with Versamark ink and then embossed with gold embossing powder.

Friends Are Flowers

Popping in to share a beautiful card I made using the 5×7 Colorista Exquisite Florals Glitter Marker Pad. I colored this using Spectrum Noir Colorista Markers. I love how the markers blend on the glitter! There is also a tutorial on the Spectrum Noir website for how to color leaves using no-blend shading as shown here in this card. The tutorial can be found HERE.

The sentiment stamp is from the Crafter’s Companion Sentimentals Vintage Floral Phrases stamp set. The small ¬†floral and dot stamps are from Stamps By Judith and Heather.¬†
