Spontaneous joy

I am happy to share another video with you today. I know…that’s three this year and it’s only April. The future is looking promising. So far the three I have posted were all filmed on the same day but rest assured there are three more in process now. The stamp on today’s card is another pretty brushstroke stamp from Penny Black. I have a few techniques I use with brushstroke stamps ranging from very detailed to very loose and watery. This card has quite a loose look but it’s still clear we are looking at poppies!

I used a combination of mememto ink pads and markers and worked in a stamp positioner so I could build the colour up step by step. Check out the video to see my whole process.

Thank you for the encouraging comments left here and on youtube about my videos. I am so happy to provide them and thrilled to hear the techniques are making sense and inspiring you to try them yourself.


Stamps: spontaneous joy, just believe

Inks: versafine onyx black, memento dandelion ink, memento tangelo, potter’s clay, espresso truffle, northern pine, olive grove markers

Paper: hot pressed watercolour paper

    Thank you for the video Heather and the loose watercolouring with the markers looks great as usual, and the added bits of detail finish it perfectly, love that sentiment too. x

    Oh…I love your videos! I’ve come to realize I am a ‘visual’ learner and video helps process each step you do which adds the detail and dimension to your work! Thank you so much for all you do to inspire and encourage our/my artistic adventures! ♥

    I also am a visual learner & so appreciate your videos because I’ve never seen a card you’ve made that I didn’t say “wow” about. You are such a great artist.
