Uplifting Thanks with Create a Smile

Happy Wednesday, everyone! It’s Nina-Marie here, and I am so thrilled to be over on the Create a Smile blog today as part of their Video Design Team!

 

An Uplifting Thank You_3

 

For my first project, I want to share a thank you card that I have created, using the new Uplifting stamp set that was just released a few weeks ago. I love watercoloring, and right now the watercolor trend is all the rage. In my video today, I am going to show you how to create a beautiful watercolor sky for the background of my card!

 

 

When coloring with Copic markers, especially when you are using a lot of shading techniques such as I have in this card, it is best if you let each layer of color dry for a short minute or so, before moving onto another color, as this will help prevent bleeding.
