Watercolour is a hot trend right now that is seen everywhere in the crafting world, on our scrapbook pages, cards, and other projects. Sakura has wonderful, portable and affordable palettes that are perfect to bring along whether you’re going to the countryside, relaxing at the beach, or walking urban landscapes. These are called their Koi Watercolors Pocket Field Sketch Box. I also use this watercolour kit at home. There are 12-, 18-  24 and 30 color travel palette kits that include a refillable water brush and dabbing sponges. You can purchase 4X6″ watercolour paper pads or cut down larger sizes of watercolour paper if you are going to travel. To make this Easter card, I first used Clearsnap Ink and embossing powder to stamp and heat emboss this beautiful floral stamp from Impression Obsession. I stamped onto Bristol paper, which I find works well with both stamping and watercolour mediums.…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim Gowdy here with a simple but fun idea, that we have visited before. I often like to find ways to bring trends into the stash I already have if possible. There is no denying that adult colouring is a huge trend! Here is my twist from my own scrapbook stash. I made these cards by stamping images from my Impression Obsession stamps onto Core’dinations Glitter Paper. Use a multi-surface ink like Clearsnap ColorBox Chalk Inks, I used Charcoal. Let it dry…it WILL take longer than on regular paper…be patient. Once it’s dry I grabbed my Chameleon Pens and coloured away…it was so fun! The alcohol inks flowed beautifully on the glitter paper and dried very quickly. Here is a third quick card I made while I had the glitter cardstock out. I took the arrows from this Stampin’ Up/Sizzix die set and cut them out of the…

Hello, Connie Nichol here with some cards I created with Impression Obsession stamps and dies, Chameleon Pens and Core’dinations cardstock.  I only meant to make one card, but I was having so much fun stamping and colouring that I ended up with a few slightly different versions.  My philosophy is that while you’ve got all the supplies scattered about, keep creating!!  It’s an awesome feeling to have a bunch of cards prepared and ready to go when you need them.  But now I can’t decide which one I like best….  they are all sort of similar but different. When I started creating these, I stamped the Mixed Flower stamp from Impression Obsession three times on white cardstock with Ranger Adirondack black dye ink and coloured them with Chameleon pens.  These markers are very unique – they are alcohol based markers that allow you to get a variety of colour tones with…

Faux Watercolour Loveliness and Pigment Ink Oh, the wonders, versatility and unending twisted ways I can play with pigment ink. I am sharing with you an altered page that is a “jump off” from a class that I taught at CHA in Anaheim in the Clearsnap booth. The class was presented as a shape card but of course what was most important was “not the project” but the ideas and the techniques we used to take white cardstock and turn it into something “marvelous”. Yes, this was white cardstock when I began and those lovely, wispy, very watercolor looking branches in the background have been stamped with ColorBox, pigment ink by Clearsnap. Yes, I am combining my pigment ink with “Top Boss” clear embossing ink so the stamped images have that “watercolor feel”. At times as I am creating this look it is almost like I am erasing the image…
