    Which Spellbinders Labels Die did you use? Will written instructions be posted somewhere? I’ll forget video as time goes by. Love the techniques!

    Thank you,

      Hi Pat, Thanks so much for watching! I am sooo sorry but I do not have the name for the labels die. I apologize! Written instructions are not posted for cards that include a video tutorial at this time but we appreciate your input and will take that into consideration for future videos. Happy Stamping!

    These are so gorgeous and I love watching you paint. It’s like taking a mini class. Thanks for sharing your talent and your “fearlessness in applying watercolor” is inspiring. 🙂

    Jill as always just lovely, fun to watch. How do you select the water color brand you decide to use? Also you stamped with Staz on is this the best to use when watercoloring?
    I do believe the spellbinder die is labels 5. I have that one and love it never thought of using the way shown, I love it. What are your card dimensions? Thank you.

      Thanks so much for your feedback, Jan! My choice of watercolors varies depending on the intensity of color I would like to achieve and the detail of the image I am coloring (watercolor pencils and markers for more detailed images, “pan” style watercolors for a lighter/looser effect). I often combine/mix and match different types of watercolors, too. Any type of bleed-proof/waterproof ink works for stamping and watercoloring–StazOn is great and I also like Ranger Archival inks. Stamping in VersaFine ink and then embossing with clear powder is another alternative. I no longer have this card so I can’t give you the exact dimensions (sorry!) but I believe it was pretty close to a standard A2 size card (4.25 inches x 5.5 inches). Happy Stamping!

        Thank you Jill, I just love the watercolors and you can probably tell I am checking them out in the stores (the 2 you have mentioned using) so good to know their is difference in how they work. 🙂 I just want to get a good one.
