Hey there! Stopping in today to share this week’s video tutorial. I got a fun little order in from Ranger the other day and couldn’t wait to try these babies out… the new Tim Holtz Distress Markers! I thought it would be fun to play around with them on camera, so this is actually the first time I even opened them. You get to learn with me. :)
Today’s card is based on water techniques, and I have to say that I’m very impressed with the color integrity that these markers have. I have to play around with them a bit more to give you my full opinion, but I’m definitely liking them so far.
I hope you enjoyed the video today! I tried to cut it down as much as I could so it’s nice and short for you. Some day I’ll be able to hover around 7 minutes with ease. ;) Also, how are you liking the new music and editing style? Maybe you don’t even notice it, but if you do I’d love to hear what you think! Like I said, I’m trying out some new things to see if I want to keep them around.
Here’s the final card. I don’t think you can hear it in my voice, but I was genuinely concerned at the end when I didn’t know how to “fix it.” That sentiment (although a very awesome sentiment) was very overpowering to the dainty little flower and watercolor! I wasn’t sure if I was going to pull it off. But man, that line around the outside made all the difference. This proves that sometime all you card needs is a little TLC to save it. Never be afraid to try something new! You might just end up surprising yourself. :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope I’ve encouraged you to try something new the next time you craft. I can’t wait to share more things with the Distress Markers in the future!
Be back tomorrow with a very special mini hop with two special ladies. Word on the street is that there may even be a little giveaway. Hint, hint. ;)
