BRI Hippity Hoppity ....

Hi everyone !! 
Woo~Hoo I am soo excited !! 
Yes, I really am might be wondering why ?! 
Lol, I actually tried a different coloring method ....
YES !! Me !! Something besides Copics ! 
Don't get me wrong I have tried this coloring method many times before ,
and I could not get it to look the way I was envisioning it in my mind . 
I would give up (I know you should not give up ...practice .. practice..practice ) ! 

Ok , so now onto how I colored in these cuties from the 
Reverse Confetti  Hippity Hoppity  stamp set . 
Adore the name of this set so much, I had to use it as my post title ! 
I actually retried water coloring with my Distress Inks and Markers !!! 
Yay !! I am a huge fan of Kristina Werner , so as you can guess when I watched one of her amazing videos on coloring with Distress inks/markers ...I went straight to my local craft stores and purchased as many of the colors as they had available !!! Purchased the Strathmore , Archival and Bristol water color paper pads , brushes get the picture ! Sat down and I was ready to color !! Here I am a couple of years after and I finally did it ,lol !!! 

I came to realize that I absolutely enjoy coloring images in with this method ...relaxing is the word that kept coming to my mind . It is important to note that I am not going for a certain "perfect" look I was going for soft and water colored . One of the tips I came to find is that the ink you use to stamp the image is very ( don't ask how much paper I wasted learning this ) important , since it has to stay in place while water is added . For me , the ink that ended up working best is
  Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black . 

Ohh and the colors I used for the images were Tattered Rose , Vintage Photo , Worn Lipstick , Chipped Sapphire and Mustard Seed .  If you would like to see more photos or to see the whole card and the goodies from Butterfly Reflections, Ink that I used please feel welcome to visit the post here

Thank you so much for stopping by !!
I look forward to coloring this way and sharing these projects with you !! 
Hoping you have a beautiful and Blessed day !!

Happy Tuesday and Day 2 of our 
CDD February 2017 Release

Today we are sneak peeking the 
Dreamland Stamps and Inside Scalloped Circle Dies. 
I combined both of these super cute sets for my 
card and tag .
 I started with my all time favorite dies from CDD Fancy Frames , I did a bit of watercoloring with my distress inks to create the night sky . I then added some white acrylic paint using an old toothbrush to create a starry effect . 
 I colored these images and die cut the scalloped circles to create my card. 

I hope you are enjoying our sneak peeks !
