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

Circle Time

Circle Time Banner

We have two beautiful new stamps, released in April, that have a fun circular design. This gives them a very unique look and lends to some beautiful creations. One of them, the Tree Circle, is a gorgeous silhouette. The other, the Wisteria Circle, offers an opportunity to color beautiful, lush flowers in purples, blues, pinks or hues of your choice. Both will remind you of a beautiful, relaxing Spring or Summer day outdoors.
