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? 🙂

Gift Basket with Crafter’s Companion/Spectrum Noir Colorista

I just love my Crafter’s Companion Ultimate Tool and all the fun projects you can make with it! And I used some fun toppers from the Colorista range to kick it up a notch!

I made this cute little basked using my Ultimate Tool, and decorated the sides with some of the heart shaped toppers from the Spectrum Noir Colorista Watercolor Toppers pad, colored with the new Spectrum Noir Colorista Aqua pencils. A little touch of ribbon at the corners finishes off the basket very nicely, and it’s ready to be given as a gift with some little goodies for that someone special!

Garden Gate
