Start to Finish Video Card Tutorial - Washed Watercolor Background...FINALLY!

Hello friends!
I'm so happy to say that I've FINALLY got a video put together for a card I had done several weeks ago.  (You can check out that post by CLICKING HERE.)   I decided to make another card from start to finish with this technique so you can see how it looks different each time.

Here is what my completed card looks like with the added details not shown in the video:
I still kept this simple, but in comparison to the other card, you can see how different it looks not because I changed the images, but the background turns out different every time you do it!  That's what I love about doing this technique!
And compared to the card in the video, I'm glad that I decided to add the glossy accent to the vellum bubbles along with a few sequins.  Really makes for a nice underwater experience for my fish friend!
The image was a "Freebie" image from The Alley Way Stamps.
CLICK HERE to find image & sentiment.

In comparison to my past video (from almost a year ago), I really needed to work on making my videos look better and I hope you like this one and hope that you get inspired through it!
*You can watch this on You Tube & enlarge your screen to view*


Here is also a close-up view of the details that I added to the card not shown on the video:
I'm thinking that adding the glossy accents and sequins were a great idea! :)
I will also have to check out more of those cute stamp sets from The Alley Way Stamps to see if I can find a cute fish like this one!
Hope you enjoyed the video and it inspired you in some way!
Please let me know if you enjoyed this or would like to see more....or if you have any questions.
Thanks so much for stopping in today and I'll see you again soon.

HUGS & SMILES

Vicki, not only is this an adorable card but I thoroughly enjoyed your video too! Great tips in it and I really never knew to try the SU ink with water to get this look. Will try it now though! Love the way you did the bubbles in the vellum too!

FANTASTIC TUTORIAL Vicki, I am so impressed and love the accent...well to me it's an accent being an Aussie myself...
I am going to have a play with this free image and tut tomorrow after I have been with my dad who is slipping slowly into a world of his own.
I love how you did the bubbles and wondered how you got the raised look until you mentioned the glossy accent...
Thanks my lovely friend...I loved it all...look forward to the next tut.xxx
