Capsule Card 5 – Cute Valentine’s Bear, Easy Ink Blending & Watercoloring

Happy Valentine’s Day! Today I have a fun card made using my Capsule Papercrafting List supplies. It’s all about the easy watercoloring on the bear from Reverse Confetti’s Huggable stamp set, plus simple ink blending with a stencil.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

After stamping on the bear on watercolor paper, I painted it with my Paper Fashion Watercolors Basics set and trimmed out the image with my scissors.

For the area behind the bear, I ink blended three colors of Gina K Design ink (Wild Lilac, Passionate Pink, and Lipstick) using blender brushes and the Stained Glass stencil from Honey Bee.

The greetings were added at the end using the Occasional Label stamp set from Mama Elephant.

Thanks for stopping by to see today’s card! I’ll be back very soon with another video. :)

    So, I am inspired, as usual, by you! I have a lot of unused products collected in a variety of ways. I was overwhelmed trying to figure out how to use them. Based on your idea, I have divided them into groups for February, March, April, and May. That way I don’t have so much staring me in the face, and I can enjoy them little by little! Thanks so much for your help!

    It’s amazing when you see a tool you have, being used in a different way. I have that stencil and now I notice how beautiful it looks with partial blending. I love every time you transform simple card into outstanding!

    Loved the card and all the things I learn from watching your videos! I have one question: with the blending brush- Do you have to have a different brush for each color? I am new to using them. Thanks!

    My husband wants to try being Snowbirds next winter. I am watching your capsule project carefully as I think it will help me plan what to take on an extended vacation. You have such a wide array of styles with your cards and with limited supplies. I am going to give it a trial run myself this year.
