Video | Sending You Sunshine with Lisa Spangler

Hey, there! It's Lisa here, and I've got a video to share with you today, using the Sunburst stamp set by One Little Bird. I just can't seem to stop using it! It's the perfect stamp set for making cards to send to family in wintery Ohio. I'll be sharing some fun techniques using pigment inks, markers, and watercolors. Check 'em out: 

Here are some tips I shared in the video:  

  • Use water-based markers to "ink" a detailed stamp, such as the face of the sun. If you stamp it over a solid stamp, like the center of the sun, you can heat emboss the whole thing! Cool! This was like pure magic to me the first time I tried it. :)  
  • Tap off some ink with a tissue so that you don't get hard edges.  
  • You can watercolor over an image that's been heat embossed - just don't try it with an unembossed message, or you'll wind up with a big mess.  
  • Before stamping on your project, stamp an image on scrap paper to soften the color.  
  • When watercoloring a background, make a puddle of ink on a plate or other surface so that you can keep going back to it. 

Thanks so much for joining me, and I'm wishing you all days filled with sunshine! 

XO,

Lisa
