1001 CARTES ON AIR – Watercolor Bubbles Video Tutorial

Hi everyone! I’m back with my latest video for Neat & Tangled! Here is my card: 

Today, I’m going to show you how to create watercolor bubbles with Distress inks. For this card, I decided to feature the Everyday Circles stamp set and I thought the "Hello" sentiment would be perfect with this bubble design. This set is probably one of my favorite sentiment stamp sets! You can use it in so many different ways. It’s a "must have" in my (your) sentiment stamp collection.

  • Draw circles using a circle template to create a unique design.
  • Choose two shades to color each bubble. This will add interest and create more depth.
  • Let dry before you color the intersecting circles.
  • Try different techniques with this design: use watercolors, Zig or Tombow markers, pencils or alcohol markers.

Watch the video below (or HERE) to find out how I created this card:
