Tips & Tricks using Watercolour Pencils

I’m starting a new feature on Friday’s called “Film Friday“.  Each Friday I’ll share a video with you.  I’ll share videos I’ve made along with videos from Stampin’ Up!

In today’s video, the lovely Shannon West, from the Stampin’ Up! home office shares some tips and tricks using the new Watercolor Pencils.

Some of the other tools you might want to use to with the pencils are listed below (you can print this list, by clicking on Supply List).  And one of my favourite tips is to use one of the clear mount stamp cases (yes you can buy empty ones!) to store the pencils). Shannon gives three tips for using the pencils.

3 Tips for Watercolor Pencils

  1. Lay down some colour with the pencils.
  2. Add some water or blend.
  3. Let it dry and then re-evaluate to see if you need to repeat the 3 steps.

Shannon also showed 3 different applications of the pencils.  You can see another card that I coloured with the Watercolor pencils here.  Be sure to check out the video and check back to next Friday for another “Film Friday” video.
