almost perfect (stamping bella)

Today I tried something new. It is most certainly *not* almost perfect. But I am learning.  I love the new Danielle Donaldson stamps from Stamping Bella. I so want to use them but I don’t know what to do with them. It’s a completely new style for me. SO… for today, I pretty much tried to mimic some of the watercolor style I found online. I left white around the image as recommended in Danielle’s (amazing) book, “creativeGIRL: Mixed Media Techniques for an Artful Life.” And I copied Danielle’s white dots (using Copic’s Opaque White and a toothpick). Maybe if I try to replicate other people’s ideas, I will eventually have one of my own. That is my hope. For now, I give complete credit to Danielle.

After watercoloring, I wanted to add some flower stems for these adorable new Pom Flowers from Queen & Co.  A couple of my Copic Multiliners were running low on ink so I took this opportunity to replace the cartridges. It was super easy.

Replacing Copic Mutiliner Ink Cartridges

As described on the Copic website, the A and B refills contain different ink viscosity to aid ink flow, depending on the nib size, so it’s important to choose the correct one.

After removing the cartridge from the package, simply remove the clear cap.

Then remove and toss the empty cartridge from the pen barrel. (Sometimes a coin helps to remove it.  I was able to use just my fingers.)

Simply pop in the new ink cartridge. Done! So easy! And no mess!

Once I drew in the stems, I glued my flowers atop.

Thanks so much for visiting today!
