The watercolor products have their own category on our website here –

And her newest video is here!! Hope you have some time to take out your paints and enjoy this week!

Peeking Pals, Fun and Frolic

Fran’s Watercolor Series will resume this Friday with some new stamp sets that showcase the new techniques she’s ready to show you! She has been sharing some Bonus Lessons in the interim, however, and we featured our Peeking Pals Perfectly Clear Stamps in her lesson last Friday. We know you’ll enjoy her whimsical paintings of these darling animals and want to try some yourself! Check out her latest videos, then get ready to resume lessons on Friday!

Bonus Watercolor Lesson – Dog Kisses B

Fran is back this week with even more fun using our Dog Kisses Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set. This week we ask… do you know how to mask??

Everyone is wearing masks and our puppers are no exception. Fran made sweet little masks for them so they can share the joys of togetherness.

And for you, she made a great new video showing how to mask these darling dogs into piles of puppy fun! You’ll love this great technique, and watercoloring them with Fran is such a bonus. Take a look –

We hope you enjoy these fun videos. Look for more in the coming weeks. You can click on an image below to scroll or swipe through larger sized pictures. Enjoy!

Bonus Watercolor Lesson – Dog Kisses A

We’re still working from home at Stampendous, and we aren’t able to ship the April Perfectly Clear Stamps yet that complement our Watercolor Video Series. So Fran has prepared a few bonus lessons to keep you busy practicing the techniques we’ve learned already.

This week she’s using our super-fun Dog Kisses Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set to practice the background techniques and the blending of the grays and browns she covered previously. You’ll love making these pups look like your own pets.

Some of our retail fulfillers have the Dog Kisses in stock, so if you haven’t picked up this fun set yet, you can order it on our website HERE.  Have fun, enjoy, and keep crafting while staying safe!

 

Enjoying National Craft Month at Home

Everyone is staying home more this month, and National Craft Month is a great excuse to do that. It’s so easy to order your craft supplies online and stay home to create and craft some love for others.

Why not encourage the whole family to enjoy watercoloring! Fran’s latest lesson in her Watercolor Video Series is live on our YouTube Channel! We think you’ll love how easy she makes it for you to make dramatic skies and wonderful sunsets!  Check it out!

We have a winner from last week’s drawing for a Sunrise Sunset Perfectly Clear Stamps Set! Be sure to email us with your U.S. Mailing Address at submissions@stampendous.com
