Watercoloring a Stamped Image with MISTI (a VIDEO)

Hello friends! 
Isn't this image darling?
s

There is something about birds and holly for Christmas card-making. I knew that I would enjoy playing with stamps like this. Once I have the stamp, I got right to "work". After making my first card, I decided to share my creative process with a VIDEO!!
merry everything

It really is easy to create once you have the right tools and supplies. If you watch my video, you would know what I mean :)

 You can watch my You Tube video here.


Here is the card that I made with the video.
have a blessed Christmas

    These two cards requires very little inks. As you can tell in my video, it is so easy to color the images. You can skip the clear-embossing process (like I did in the video) and continue to color or leave the image as it is.

Big thanks to my My You Tube subscribers and those who give me the thumbs-up.

 I am strongly encouraged by your kind words and feedback. If my post inspires you somehow, then it is worth my time to create the videos.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wonderful card and so beautiful the way you colored it. I enjoyed the video and when I get time I will try to do some cards using this technique tool. You make it look so easy.

I love birds so both of your cards spoke to me. Your video is excellent. I was especially delighted to watch your use of blues around the bird. You made it look so very easy. Wonderful 'hint' to use clear embossing as a last step before using blues. Lovely, lovely, lovely.

First of all, this card is beautifully colored and embellished. Secondly, you're really getting good at this video stuff. I even learned a couple of things...which is odd, as I am such a know-it-all.
