Leslie Hanna said...

I can't decide which I like more: the washi tape, the splatters, the enamel dots, or the sentiment. Okay, I like them ALL! :)

Sue McRae said...

I just saw your fun cards over at The Classroom. I really like the controlled splatter using the watercolor pencils.

Mary Dimercurio Prasad said...

Love the project - nice graphic design! I never know what to do with Washi tape... it looks so good on your project!

Super card set today! Love your use of the washi and the splattering technique is fun - I've been doing it with my InkTense pencils and love the results!

Leslie said...

Great video! I think I'm going to have to try this technique. I really like the fine splatter effect! Oh and I love your nail polish!

Congrats on your guest spot in the classroom!

Nancy Walker said...

Wow...the CLASSroom! hooray for you and for your originality. Love it!

Dottie J said...

Love this technique! Always found the misters frustrating... not just control but hard to have just the right color. This way, you could even custom mix the color. Thanks for sharing!

Karen said...

Love your cards, and appreciate learning how to use my watercolor pencils to create the splattered look. I have a terrible time with the misters! Thanks for sharing!

Unknown said...

Adorable card! Thank you for the video!

cards by cara said...

You rocked the video and the cards are adorable! Love this tip on much more manageable splotches of ink!! Thanks for your work on this. :)

mama-z said...

I have to say I love the technique you used to do the splatter. I too have had the same problem with the mister bottles concentrating too much ink in one area:( Can not wait to try your technique this weekend. The enamel dots by "My Mind's Eye" were pretty cool as well. Like the look they gave your card. I'm going to one of our local crafting shops for a garage sale this weekend and will have to buy some and try them out. Thanks for all the great tips!

Laura Norris said...

What a fun card you made! I love the splatter look - but haven't wanted to invest in the Mr. Heuy's - now I don't have too!! Thanks for the great tip. So fun to see you in the CLASSroom!

Sheila H said...

Thanks for sharing your great video - the technique is awesome!

Dorothy C. said...

I love every thing about the cards you made on the CLASSroom! It's a great technique for smaller splattering but I do like my Mr. Hueys too.

Miriam Prantner said...

Love the video Heather! What a great technique! I am going to have to try it, and fun nail polish!

reen said...

Good times indeed, very pretty!

Cat Craig said...

Yea, great card Heather. I am in awe of those that use washi well, my attempts are so in need of help!
Love the colors and design. Off to watch the vid on YT.

Your video was super, Heather! I will definitely try the watercolor pencil splatter technique. I, too, have a problem with spray ink splatters, so this will be so helpful to me. It is also a great way to stretch supplies. Thank you so much for sharing. I just subscribed to your blog for more fun to come!

Terri (blindstamper) said...

Welcome to the Classroom! I can't believe that was your first video. Very nice job!

Carol Cel said...

I love the tutorial on the splatters! You make it look so easy. I hope to try it this weekend. Oh, and the washi tape. . . I need to check that out.

Ann Marie said...

That was an excellent video - it's hard to believe it's your first one. I have real problems with misters because my hands don't work well, so I'll give your techniques a try. Thanks!

BeverlyBL said...

Thought you did a great job on your video. Like the idea of creating any color spatter I want, not just what is manufactured and that I can have more control over the size of the spatter. Like that washi paper too. Thanks for your cute card.

Dixie Cochran said...

Terrific video, Heather! Thank you!

Sue D said...

Great video at the CLASSroom. I like the control you achieved with this method.
