You’ve Got a Friend in Me {WOYWW & 2 Video Tutorials!}

I had a pretty busy day yesterday but I managed to sneak down to my studio to play a bit:


I love anything Wizard of Oz themed! I’ve had this set from Crafty Secrets for quite a while, uninked, and I had to remedy that! I decided to do a video on the chevron resist background and also one on how I colored the image since I get asked for coloring videos a lot. Up first is the background video:

To be honest I scorched the sample in the video, there was smoke coming from my paper but it did not show up in the video LOL! The resist was fine but not as bold as the one on the rectangle card. It wouldn’t be one of my videos without some mishap! Now here is a video on how I colored the image, you will learn a gradient blend and how to get the look of metal.

Here is a close up of the coloring:


And here are my cards:


And since it is What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday here is my messy post videos desk:


Well, that just about does it! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
