Creating a scene with watercolor pencils!

I have to say.. sometimes creating a scene is cathodic.  Well, not the emotional ones, lol.. but these beautiful handmade cards that highlight a winter scene.  I adore playing with TECHNIQUES and here, with a fun Coloring Technique and this One Layer Card (just ONE!) that comes together with perspective to create a unique colorful scene.  Created on our Facebook.com/GettingCrafty.net LIVE CLICK HERE to see this video and join us!

Create this COLORFUL Scene with our Watercolor Pencils in Flirty Flamingo, Rich Razzleberry, Gorgeous Grape as well as our Black and Whisper White.  
~ Create this Oval Die for a masking with our Layering Ovals dies and a spare piece of Whisper White card stock. 
~  Scored at 5-1/2" cut at 4-1/4".
~  Stamping this Blessed Christmas Wishes greeting, from the Itty Bitty Christmas greeting set in Memento black ink on the bottom corner.
~  Layer your mask on the center of the card front.
~ Color the center in with the Whisper White watercolor pencil in an oval shape.
~  Layer around the outside the Flirty Flamingo, then the Rich Razzleberry and the Gorgeous Grape in the same circular format, overlapping each color.

TOOL TIP:  I store my Watercolor Pencils, both sets, in a Wood Mount case.  You will protect the pencil tips, can add a pencil sharpener, Blender Pen, Aqua Painter or Wink of Stella.  Find these easily as they will stand well on a shelf.

Techniques (Two Actually!):  
(1.) Create a unique frame when you finish your project by using the Black watercolor pencil around the outside of the masked image - this will create a unique finished look.
(2.) Blend our watercolor pencils (Such AMAZING Quality!) with a variety of tools, mentioned above, but today we are adding SPARKLE with our Wink of Stella glitter brush!

~  Stamp the pine trees and deer together on the Stampin' Pierce Mat (this gives the best result for our Photopolymer stamps!) our Memento Black ink pad over the center.
~  I like Perspective (having taught it today to kids in our homeschool coop today this very lesson!) and stamping the larger tree on the outside of the image gives a unique layer.
~  Apply the mask back on and then stamp the dot image in the Silver Delicata ink over the image for a star filled sky.  
~  Tie it ALL together with this stunning glittery ribbon!  
Do NOT Miss a simple way to take this one layer card up a level (0r any handmade cards!)  by decorating the INSIDE of the card.  Here adding a dash of the watercolor pencils and stamping the inside, this hand stamped card carries the image through out!
Little did you know that you could have a brown and purple Christmas card with BLACK ribbon!

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
