Liquid Color Painting with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Today’s technique in my Online Techniques class is the Liquid Color Painting. This fun technique is one I’ve been doing a lot lately but it’s also one needed in the technique book so you don’t forget this fun and easy technique.

I Love the Herald Angels Bundle and decided it would be the perfect set for today’s technique.

I embossed the Angel using Clear Pigment Ink and embossed in Black; then die cut out with the coordinating framelit. You do not need to emboss with this technique but I like to.

I paired the Herald Angels stamp set with the Vintage Notes Stamp Set.

For the Sentiment I stamped onto Whip Cream card stock and punched out with the punching system; same for the Scallop Black punched piece.

Watercolor Smooching with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Today’s technique in my Online Techniques class is the Watercolor Smooching technique. This is a simple technique that is pretty much how it sounds.

I love the variations of colors you get with this technique and I encourage you to experiment with different color combinations.

Today I chose to use 3 different Blue Journey Color Splash Pencils. I really love how this card turned out and I hope you do as well.

The gorgeous Herald Angels Bundle is the perfect stamp set to use on the Smooch I created on the Color Splash Sheet.

I also like the sentiment embossed in Silver along with the Angel it makes a Wow factor on the card.

To finish it off I added some Fashion Silver drops.

Here is the video for today’s technique:
