Last weeks Stamping Basics video compared the Stampin’ Write Markers to the Stampin’ Blend Markers.  This week, in the Stamping Basics – Blender Pen vs Aqua Painter video, we are comparing coloring with the Blender Pen and the Aqua Painter.

This is part of a video series that is all about the BASICS.  Whether you are new to stamping/paper crafting, or just struggle with some of the basics, these videos are for you.  I am hoping that these weekly videos will help you learn how easy it can be to make special cards for special people!  If you have a special request for a “basics” video, please leave a comment–I want to teach you want you need to learn about!

Blender Pen vs AquaPainter

Both can give you a “watercolor” look.  It’s really a personal preference as to which you like the best.  Personally, I prefer the AquaPainter.  It’s my “go to” method of coloring.  Remember to use the ARCHIVAL BLACK when doing any type of watercoloring and either Shimmery White cardstock or Watercolor Paper.  Click on any of the pictures below to place your order to get started with these coloring methods today!

Card Shown in the Video

The card I show in this weeks video is actually the same card I shared in last weeks video comparing the Stampin’ Write Markers to the Stampin’ Blends.  This card could be made coloring the image in any way you like–Markers, Blends, Blender Pen or Aqua Painter.  This sample was colored using the Stampin’ Blends.

If you’d like the details on the card, just click on the picture below to go to last weeks post with all the details, recipe and supplies needed.
