Scrapbook News & Review - November Issue is Live!
Have you heard? The November issue of Scrapbook News & Review is live and offering pages of inspiring artwork, manufacturer spotlights, and articles outlining tips and techniques! Each issue holds over 300 images, layouts, and card samples...all for only $4.99/month! I've been working with the team on a "Back to the Basics" stamping series. The first month I discussed the basics of stamping; what somone who is just getting started in stamping needs to know. This month, I covered different coloring techniques and mediums, such as watercolor pencils, Gamsol, and Copic markers. The card above was created for a section on using watercolor markers to apply ink onto stamps. I used one of my favorite SU! stamp sets for this card and the bird image was colored with markers before being stamped on my cardstock. The purple piece in the background also sports another technique; polished stone. You can check out the Back to the Basics article here. Next month we'll be covering the basics of embossing...so stay tuned!
