Every Thursday I post instructions for either a technique or for using a product. This week the technique is called ZENDOODLE

I hope you are liking my THURSDAY TECHNIQUES & TIPS.  My goal is for you to always be learning something new and giving it a try.  If you try a technique I share, PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT and let me know.  I love to hear from you, especially when I share something you use!

While you read this post, I am on my way to Utah for my daughter Jami’s graduation from GRAD school!!!  I am one PROUD MOMMA right now!  I will share pictures when I get back.

As I was getting ready to leave, I ran out of time getting a technique ready to share, so I decided to  just BRING BACK a very VERY old video showing a VERY old technique.  But the cool thing is, this stamp set is still available and is a timeless classic.  This is one of the first videos I did, over 4 years ago–so please, DO NOT LAUGH.  But you can still learn from it!

Here is the card.  Yes, even the picture is OLD.  I think I have gotten better at taking pictures of my cards.  At least I would like to think I have!  (and better at doing videos!)

Easy watercolor look using Stampin' Up! Thoughts and Prayers stamp set. By Jackie Bolhuis

This technique gives you the look of watercolor and is VERY SIMPLE TO DO.  Here is the OLD VIDEO showing you how:


OK–stop laughing at the video.  Actually–PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT if you watched it and let me know what you think of this technique!  Give it a try the next time you are stamping!

The stamp used is still current and is a GO TO SET of mine when I need to send a card to encourage someone.  Whether they are sick, going through tough times, or just needing a prayer!  Click on either pictures below to view this lovely set and all the great stamps–especially all the WORD STAMPS!
