Fall Inspired Distress Oxide Watercolor Background + New Neat & Tangled Throwdown

 
Hello Crafters!

I hope you've been having an amazing weekend!
Mine has been a lot of work but on really good things. 

Speaking of good things, I wanted to stop by and share the new Neat & Tangled Throwdown. 


The challenge this time around is to create a tutorial. You can do either a video or a photo tutorial. 
I did one of each. You can see the photo tutorial and get all the challenge details over on the Neat & Tangled Blog.


You might think that a tutorial is a little too much but the effort is worth the reward. By entering you have a chance to win....

drum roll please...






I tried a lot of different techniques in this card. Playing around with distress oxides is fun! You can check out the whole card in the video below. 



I actually really love the gold die cut. I mean honestly, who doesn't love a beautifully sparkly leaf? The stamping underneath is so simple but that shadow adds so much. 


In the close up it's definitely easier to see the texture creating from stamping with the water. 

Thank you guys so much for stopping by!

Coloring Marble with Copic Markers and Spellbinders

 Hello Crafters! 

Well I made it to my Friday.
Whoo Hoo!

It's weird because now that peanut is in school if I want to go back to bed after getting him off to class I totally can. Like, I can sleep guys.
It's almost the best thing ever haha

I was on the Spellbinders blog sharing this card a few weeks ago and wanted to make sure I shared it here. 
Why?
Well the videos are different. From now on the video on the Spellbinders channel will be strictly instructional while the video on my channel will be the usual craft and chat. 
That way no matter which kind of video you enjoy there's something for everyone! 


So even though I'm not a wine drinker I'm friends with plenty of them! This particular die is actually a wine tag but I just modified it to fit a card. I love switching things up to get more out of them. 


I started by stamping down the corks and coloring them with my copic markers. I really loved the way they came out! 


Next I pulled out the cool gray markers and tried my hand at creating a marble counter top. 
This was my very first try ever and was surprisingly easy if you don't let yourself over think it! 

You can see the marble technique and everything else in the video below. 


The video really doesn't do the shading on that wine glass any justice. Please check out the still photos to see how it turned out. I was surprised by how much the distress ink lighten with the gloosy accents on top. It turned my red wine into more of a Rosé for sure haha


Thanks so much for joining me! 
I'll be back in no time at all to share a new card!
