5 Colouring Techniques using Watercolour Pencils with This Little Piggy #stampinup

Hi Everyone

Thanks for stopping by today. Do you remember my challenge entries using the new stamp set, This Little Piggy?


I thought I would share with you how I use the Watercolour Pencils to colour 3 images from the This Little Piggy set, which is available from June 1st.

The Watercolour Pencils are available now though and it's a great way to add colour to your projects

Following from Charlotte's presentation at onstagelive in Amsterdam back in April, I have recreated the 5 Colouring Techniques Charlotte shared with everyone:


Stippling ~ applying tiny dots on your card which can be close together or far apart, great for adding texture
Hatching ~ drawing short parallel lines going in the same direction, great for adding shadows
Cross-Hatching ~ drawing parallel lines going in the same direction and then drawing on top with another set of parallel lines going the opposite direction
Back & Forth ~ most common technique which is basically colouring in a continuous back & forth motion
Scumbling ~ making continuous circular marks without lifting your colouring pencil, great for filling different areas with different colours

The Watercolour Pencils are easy to use and blends well. They work great with the Aqua Painters & Blender Pens

Check out the video below on how I used these 5 Colouring Techniques with This Little Piggy:



Try these 5 colouring techniques on your projects and I hope you will enjoy using the Watercolour Pencils even more.

Thanks again for stopping by. Until next time, BYEEEEE!

Dreamy Scene with the NEW Daisy Delight Set #stampinup

Stampin Up UK Daisy Delight Jay Soriano Mitosu Crafts Order Stampinup Online Shop 1

Hi Everyone

Thanks for stopping by and welcome to another project using the NEW Daisy Delight stamp set and colours from Colour Inkspiration #CI09. I couldn't help myself to create a 3rd card as the inspiration came to me whilst still doing the 2nd one!

This time I wanted to use more of the stamp set in a different way than intended. I have also used Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Black ink to complete this dreamy scene:

Apply Pool Party on the top 3/4 of the Whisper White card using Sponge Brayers
Apply Sahara Sand on the bottom 1/3 of the card with Stamping Sponges
Stamp the stalks in Crumb Cake randomly at the bottom, up to 3rd Generation
Stamp the stalk ends in Cherry Cobbler, matching the opacity of the stalks
Stamp the 'hanging vines' in Dapper Denim and Crumb Cake
Use Cherry Cobbler for the buds, again matching the opacity of the 'hanging vines'
Use copy paper to mask certain areas and apply Pool Party and Dapper Denim to create the streaks of light and horizon
Add Memento Black around the edges using Stamping Sponges
Stamp the 'Thank You' sentiment and add the Jewels to finish

Colour Inkspiration Entry with NEW Daisy Delight Set #stampinup

Jay Soriano Mitosu Crafts Stampin Up UK Daisy Delight Order Stampinup Online Shop 1

Hi Everyone

Thanks for stopping by today. As mentioned on my previous post, I created 2 more projects for the Colour Inkspiration #CI09 challenge.

Here is my 2nd challenge entry:

There's not much stamping on this one but I really enjoyed sponging to create this scene. I used the new Daisy Delight set, available from June 1st for the sentiment and reeds, I guess.

Jay Soriano Mitosu Crafts Stampin Up UK Daisy Delight Order Stampinup Online Shop 3Jay Soriano Mitosu Crafts Stampin Up UK Daisy Delight Order Stampinup Online Shop 4

Sahara Sand base card 10.5cm x 14.8cm
Black mat 10cm x 14.3cm
Use Sponge Brayer to apply Pool Party on the top 3/4 of Whisper White card 9.5cm x 13.8cm
Add Sahara Sand on the bottom 1/3 of the card
Sponge Dapper Denim on the edges
To create streaks of light in the sky and sea, use copy paper to mask certain areas and apply ink with Stamping Sponges
Re apply Pool Party on the highlights and Memento Black on the top 3/4 of the card
Stamp the reeds in Memento and Cherry Cobbler
Stamp the sentiment with Crumb Cake

My sponging isn't as smooth but it adds to the dramatic secene. I had to restrain myself to stop, I could have dontinued building the scene even more with Craft White ink.

After making this card, I had another idea using more of the Daisy Delight stamps, sponging and masking technique. Check back later tonight to see it.
