The other day I featured the Cosmo Cricket Swatch Sticks. Today I am introducing the Cosmo Cricket Resist Pen. This pen allows you to write, doodle and draw anything you want to turn into a resist. You simply apply your design, let it dry and add a watercolour medium over top to reveal your masterpiece! The pen dries fairly quick, however in the video I had a small portion that was a lot thicker, so I waited longer for it to dry. I just let it air dry. I used the Cosmo Cricket Swatch Sticks over top, but any water based medium would work.

Today I am featuring the Cosmo Cricket Swatch Sticks. These are little sticks that have watercolour paints built into them. They have a foam applicator at the end that releases the colours. The set comes with 6 double ended sticks, therefore all 12 colours and a water brush. I am using the Swatch Sticks on the Just Add Watercolour papers. I like to add water to the paper first. This allows the colour to blend nicely. When you use it on the Just Add Watercolour papers the clear resist and foiling pops through the colours.
I also used the Swatch Sticks to make a background on the card. I misted the card with water and then randomly added the colours from lightest to darkest.

Spellbinders has ventured into Stamps to co-ordinate with their Signature Collections. Today I am featuring 2 new stamps by Tammy Tutterow for Spellbinders. I am using a Big Dose of Happy and Be Sunny. I stamped the images onto Watercolour paper using Archival Ink. I then used the Derwent Inktense Pencils and coloured in the images. I like to use the pencils since I can get into the small areas of the stamp. I used a thin water brush to activate the colour. I started with the lightest colour then worked my way to the darkest colour.
Next I randomly coloured a watercolour card with the Pencils. I activated the colour using a large brush and water. I then splattered some of the colour onto the stamped image to finish it off!

Today I am showing you how to add foiling on black paper. I used images from GraphicStock.com and printed them onto my paper using a laser printer. Even though it was black on black I was still able to see the image. I then put the Thermoweb Deco Foil on top – colour side up – and ran it through my Royal Sovereign laminator on the #5 setting. Remove the foil and you have a beautiful image!
I then wanted to add a colour around the edge of my white card and choose to use embossing powder. I showed you this technique before but this time I added a second layer to make the edge perfectly smooth!
