  5. Thanks for the great video – I always enjoy them! This one took something that I have really wanted to try and now you have made it seem simple! Thanks for helping me take my craft to a new level. Love this card the colors are wonderful. Hmm now where did I put those blender pens…………….

  6. I sure hope this gets a few more using their Blender Pens! Thanks for your kind feedback

  7. Mary, I am also a water coloring phobia person. I love the video, you did a great job. You are amazing. I have a blender pen but have never used it. Thank you so much Mary, happy stamping. Ellen Hinds

  8. Love to see you coloring, great job. Simple, easy and worry free, my kind of coloring. Pretty card.

  9. Hi Mary. I also have water-coloring phobia, so glad we can just throw the rules out the window. Loved your video tutorial!

  10. Great tutorial Mary. I never really tried the blender pen, I imagine I overthought myself out of giving it a try. This gives me a little incentive to at least try it.

  11. Thanks, Maria and Kadie. That means a lot coming from a couple watercoloring gurus!

  12. Now that’s a 1-Minut to WOW Video! Talk about taking the fear-factor out of water coloring for us. THANKS my friend. Your card is GORGEOUS!

  13. Hello Mary, I didn’t have a chance to tell you yesterday how much I love your card so I’m telling you now. Water coloring is a very forgiving technique, it’s ok if you go out the lines because you can erase it with a bit of water and a tissue. I love how this card looks done with the Blender Pen, this flowers look beautiful in any color.
    Thank you for your video, believe it or not, I don’t know how to use the blender pens, I have a set but hardly use it, they might be dry already, LOL!!
    Welcome back home!!! 🙂
