Bundles of Love

Bundles of Love

When I saw this Bundles of Love Stamp from MFT Stamps, I knew instantly I needed to use my Karin BrushMarker pens to color this beauty. 

I recorded a process video so you can see how easy it is to use the fine-topped pigment-loaded brushes in intricate areas.

You’ll also see how I don’t use more than a little drop of ink ... with watercoloring, the number one rule is to allow your water to control the flow of your ink. So, using the wet on wet method, I was able to get beautiful gradation in my colors by using a very little amount of ink. 

Once I finished coloring the stamped image, I fussy cut it. I didn't want anything taking away from the coloring, so decided to turn this into a clean and simple white background card.

Doing dry-embossing with the Altenew Mega Rose Stencil on the card panel as well as one of the die cut circles made for a good highlight area for the girl. I also added two Stitched Ric Rac die cuts on which I stamped the sentiment "This One is For You" from MFT's Cup of Love stamp set.


I hope you enjoy the video.
