You've Got This!

I made another card with the very cute little Tiny Heroes set by Mama Elephant for a special young lady.  She's a blond so I made this one with lighter hair with my Copics.  My friend, Cyndi, told me my coloring was getting better and I told her that's only because these images are so teeny! HAHA!

I also used the frame die from Sew Fancy...also by Mama Elephant.  The paper is From Lawn Fawn and to make the blue sky...well, I simple used some Distress Ink on one of those little round blender thingies. 
I just love this set for and that it has both little super heroes that are girls as well as boys!

Kristina Werner shared a video last week where she watercolored some custom envelopes.  I loved what she did so much that I thought it would be fun to try.  I don't have my WRM punch board with me (the easiest way to make envelopes of just about any size!) so I used my Silhouette to cut some out (the second easiest way to make envelopes!).  I used standard 80 lb watercolor paper. Kristina's method is to use frisket masking fluid or resist fluid to write the name.  Then you let it dry...watercolor over it (done with Distress Inks) and then remove the dried masking fluid.  I made several but I wrote the address on the others before I remembered to take pictures so I don't want to share those here.  I love the custom look and I think the recipients will get  a kick out of seeing their names on the envelopes in a more artsy way.

This was the first one I did....and I think I got a little better with the masking fluid and the watercoloring for the others but you won't get to see those! Sorry...!
 The idea is simple to follow and no two will ever be the same...

Happy Crafting!

  1. Your coloring is better than mine. I've been practicing coloring more. The dog on the Super Hero card reminds me of Daisy. Like the artsy look of the name envelope color masking.
