Grateful For You, Concord & 9th: Mixing Autumn Copic Colors

 Hello Crafters! 

Happy Sunday! 
I hope you all are having an amazing weekend. I'm back to work tomorrow after having 11 days off and I'm a little sad about it haha. 

I got my hands on the new release from Concord & 9th and wanted to share this new beautiful Fall bouquet. 
Even if, I am in no way, ready for fall. 
At. All. 


Concord & 9th always has the most clever designs. This one features a fun background you can actually stamp around the flower bouquet. I couldn't pass up a chance to use it! 



It's actually super simple to put together. Stamp one side of the background, stamp the flowers, stamp the other side of the background. Easy Peasy. I used navy blue for mine. Because in case you didn't know, Blue is my boyfriend. 


I jumped right into the Copic coloring after that. I mixed a few colors to get a different look in my Autumn palette. I use Copics but the rules for mixing apply to any medium. 

You can check out the whole card and hear about my dogs escapades in the video below 


I need a fence for sure. And I'll keep you updated on these dip nails. 
Back to the card...do you usually mix up your colors or do you stay in the same color family? 



You can see the height on that sentiment in this side shot. It was a pain in my tushy but worth it for that glittery goodness to be popped up :) 

Thanks for stopping by to visit!

Best Buds: Altenew Watercolor Pan Blog Hop

 Hello Crafters! 

I am jumping right back in the saddle after my girls trip. 
Whew! Here we go :)  

Welcome to the Altenew 36 pan Watercolor Release Blog Hop! 
You want to start at the Altenew Card Blog so you don't miss a thing! 
If you've been hopping you should have arrived from the fantastic Kymona Tracey's blog

First things first let's talk about the super fun free gift! 
For a limited time Altenew is  offering a FREE Watercolor Pan Case(value $5.99) with the purchase of the Watercolor 36 Pan Set. The free gift will be added to cart automatically.



Even more reason to be kind and leave some love 
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to SIX lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 8/15/2018 for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 8/19/2018.

Altenew is also generously letting me giveaway a $30 gift card to the store from one lucky comment on my blog. Winner will be announced on 08/15/2018.



I paired the new watercolors with the Best Buds set. I stamped them in pale ink before no line watercoloring. I actually started with negative painting to put in the background. 


I wanted to play with a few features from the watercolors in the card and see what it did or didn't do. The transparency is pretty amazing. Even for the darker colors. I didn't notice a whole lot of a chalky hue when I painted over a black line. 


I also wanted to check out it's lifting properties. Even after it's been dry for about an hour it still lifted pretty clean which is nice. However, it does reactive with Wink of Stella glitter. I know cause I needed some shine on those flowers :)  


I'm hoping to have a video up in a bit. Bear with me, I legit just flew home today. 

Video is together and girls trip story one is included. 
It's a long one, get the popcorn. 



Thanks so much for dropping by! 
Your next stop on the hope is the super talented Norine Borys
