Spellbinders Stamps & AquaBlend Pencils!


Make sure to mark Wednesday, September 20th on your calendar because this is going to be a real fun class with a Spellbinders stamp set chosen by Spellbinders Educator Canada! (Inspiring Others)  A class that will bring out the inner young girl in you while we create these cards. Remember loving to colour and paint as a girl?

I love working with watercolour pencils just a tad more than with alcohol markers. I think it is because you can create so many effects with it and it is easy to do.

As soon as I can get my photo upload to work, I will add individual card photos

Date: Wednesday, September 20th
Time: 6:00 - 8:00
Cost: $35 + GST and includes a $22 stamp set and all other products...

Many of you know that not only does Spellbinders have a ton of different dies to work with, but also has some pretty wonderful stamp and stamp/die sets to have fun with. For our 5th Spellbinders Educator class we will be creating two cards with one of the newer stamp sets! Not only that, we will be working with watercolour pencils!

We will go over some very basic watercolour techniques as well as have fun using a couple of background techniques. As Sabrina will be instructing Spectrum Noir AquaBlend watercolour classes this Fall, this will be a great time to come and play and see if you would like to add water colouring to your list of creative skills for some of your future card making adventures.

Be sure to take care going through this list so that you do not forget anything.

BRING TO CLASS: non-stick craft mat, washi tape, one of your smooth (not used) die cutting plates (or plexi piece about that size), a fine mist water mister, synthetic water brushes - 2 round (fine and med) & 2 flat (1/4" & 1/2"), and/or Aqua pens (brushes that hold water), a water bottle with water, an empty jar with a lid, a yogurt or margarine lid (or watercolour pallet), clear stamp blocks, a gray & black pigment ink like Archival or VersaFine ink pads, stamp cleaner, scissors, craft knife, heat tool, mini-glue dots, double sided adhesive, white pop dots/3D Foam Squares/Tape, a few pieces of paper towel, & a notebook and pencil. WATERCOLOUR PENCILS - You may bring your own watercolour pencils to this class, or start to purchase the Spectrum Noir AquaBlend water colour pencils through Stacey. There are 4 sets of 24 pencils, and the Primaries set is the one used for this class. If you wish to order these in time for class, you will need to do so ASAP.



There will be a limited number of watercolour AquaBlend pencils for you if you want to give it a go, but do not currently have any watercolour pencils.
