Liquid Color Watercolor Backgrounds with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Wednesday, December 3, 2018

Well don’t I feel silly! I got my dates mixed up and thought today was Tuesday and it’s Wednesday and I’m a day late with my technique for my Techniques Class.

So today’s technique is the Liquid Color Watercolor Background technique; which should have been yesterday’s post but it’s today’s.

Maybe I was super excited to show you this month’s featured stamp set Storybook Occasions and the 4 fun fold cards (See grouping at the bottom of post).

On today’s card I used the Rich Coral, Limeade Splash, Fresh Forest and Bubble Gum Liquid Colors.

The Stamp Set is the Dear Rose Bundle.

The Embossing Folder I used is the FREE Brocade Imprints Embossing Folder (This is a Bloom Benefit option with a min. $100.00 order).

On my card sample I stamped the flower and leaves using Black Licorice ink and then quickly embossed with Black Embossing Powder on a Color Splash Sheet. I did this before doing the Liquid Color Watercolor Background.

On my sample in my technique book I did the technique first and stamped after and didn’t emboss. Either way works so the choice is yours.

Liquid Colors & Stencils with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Thursday, December 28, 2017

Today in my online techniques class we are doing the Liquid Colors & Stencil technique.

I really like how this card turned out and it is so much fun to watch the magic happen.

This card does require the Color Splash Sheets as well as some drying time or heat set it.

Because it is so cold and snowy here in Michigan I thought a New Years Card with snowflakes was pretty fitting.

It’s fun to watch the snowflakes appear on the paper.

You will need the following Liquid Colors: Catalina Splash, Lovely Blue and the NEW Cool Pool. The Cool Pool Liquid Color is in the New Bloom this Way Mini; so you will need to wait until January 1st to order that one.

If you haven’t received your copy from me and placed an online order with me in the last 4 months email me and I’ll make sure to get it out in the mail tomorrow.

If you are new to my blog and haven’t order from me before you still have time to place your order and I’ll mail you one as well.

If you would like a copy and not place an order email me and I’ll send you a PayPal invoice for $3.50 to cover the shipping cost.

Ordering is easy; just click on the items you wish to purchase and add them to your shopping cart.

Here is the video for today’s technique:

This month you will get the PDF file and a video to create 4 different types of Tent Topper Cards as well as the Snowmen Day’s cards.

Fun Stampers Journey Gel Press & Liquid Colors with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

I’m continuing on with my Liquid Colors and the Gel Press. I just love how the colors came out and how my leaves look so realistic.

If you missed yesterday’s blog post on how to use the Gel Press with the Liquid Colors you can view it HERE.

Today’s card uses the Falling Petals stencil as well and the Autumn Days stamp set.

The outline image of the Autumn Day’s leaves go perfectly with the Gel Press prints.

On today’s card I used the second and third pulls from my Gel Press.

The background was a second pull and the leaves were stamped and die cut out of a 3rd pull.

You can’t see it in the pictures but I sponged the leaves with the Gold PanPastel giving them a shimmery look and a little gold elegance.
