New WOW! Video. Easiest Watercoloring Ever!

Stampin Up Little Loves A Little Wild Lion Card - Mary Fish StampinUp

On yesterday’s post here, I shared a watercolored elephant that I colored in seconds with Smoky Slate ink and an Aqua Painter.

Today I created a similar card, again using the A Little Wild Stamp Set and Little Loves Framelits Dies – but focusing on the lion.  Save 10% when you purchase the stamps and dies as a bundle! LOVE A DEAL? See all Stampin’ Up! 10% off bundles here.

I created a WOW! video for you to see how simple my method was for watercoloring the lion (as well as yesterday’s elephant).  A key ingredient was using Stampin’ Up! Shimmery White card stock and NOT worrying about staying within the lines.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • To create the frame, I cropped Basic Black with a square die from Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

  • Using a smaller size square die from Layering Squares Framelits Dies, I cropped the Basic Black square with a Big Shot and a Magnetic Platform to keep it in place.
  • I used the same square from immediately above to crop the Whisper White layer and Real Red card base (5″ x 3 1/2″).
  • The black frame is adhered to the opening to make it really pop!

  • The elephant was cropped with the Little Loves Framelits Dies and popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals – darling inside and out.

  • So many possibilities!  Since the stamp set and dies are designed to create front and back tags, I wanted to show this charming example from Stampin’ Up!
