Hey Chick take 2

Continuing my series of Hey, Chick cards, today is another fun card.


Quite a simple card. Simple repeated stamping of the one image all over the card front. Then highlighting one image. I coloured this chicken using our Watercolour Pencils.

Hey, Chick

Hey, Chick! Have a happy day!  What a fun sentiment, and one that I love. Have you noticed that I always say 'Have a great day' at the end of my blog posts. And all my customers know I use it at the end of every email. You know why I do this? Well, simply to put a smile on somesone's face and a bit of positivity in their day. It's the same reason why I will often smile at strangers in the street. No I'm not crazy, just trying to brighten someone's day. After all, we have no idea what is going on in peoples lives, and the smile from a stranger could be what changes their mindset and their day. Or they could just walk away thinking 'that lady is crazy'. lol

I love the Hey, Chick stamp set for that reason. What a perfect way to brighten someones day. Today marks the start of a series on this set. Here is the first card.

You couldn't help but have a great day if you got this card in the mail. It is bright, fun and love  those quirky chickens.

Watercolour Tutorial

Today I have a watercolour tutorial - with a difference. I am not going to show you the normal watercolour technique, but something a bit different. First  let's take a look at the card on which I used this technique. In case you missed it, I featured it yesterday on my blog.

So In Love - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://bit.ly/2l9Jo9k

It doesn't look like there is any water colouring on this card, does there? But there is. All the flowers and leaves have been water coloured. This is how you do it.

You will need some watercolour pencils, stamps, aqua painter and card stock.

So In Love - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://bit.ly/2l9Jo9k


Next step is to wet  the stamps with your aqua painter. This works best on the red rubber stamps.

So In Love - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://bit.ly/2l9Jo9k


Now use your watercolour pencils and colour in the stamp. Sometimes the water will dry before you are finished, so you have to work quickly.

Once the stamp is coloured, stamp onto your card stock.

This is the effect you will get. And each time you do it, you will get a different look.

So In Love - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://bit.ly/2l9Jo9k


It is a fun technique and a different way of using your water colour pencils.
