Sponging a Scene Tutorial!

Remember this card from earlier in the week? Well you are in for a treat today! It's my Trendsetter week over at the TSG blog so it was my turn to put together a trend or tutorial for you, so I chose a tutorial...a video tutorial *insert oooh's and ahhhhh's here* :D

Well folks, it's been a few years since I made any sort of video tutorial and I was a little nervous but here goes and try and not laugh me out of the building, 'Kay? ;)

So, what did you think? Think that you can create something like this yourselves? I can assure you that it is very easy and it goes quick once you get started! After the tutorial was shot, I did add a little bit of shading under my crab and some highlights with my white chalk pencil to create the waves! Easy Peasy and it's perfect for all of those images that you colour up ahead of time...just leave a little extra white space around your image and you are good to go for creating the scene of your dreams!

List of supplies for the tutorial:

Stamps: There She Goes - Beach Bums
Paper: 90lb Coldpress Canon Water Colour Paper

Ink:  Baja Breeze (SU), Bermuda Bay (SU), Pacific Point (SU), Not Quite Navy (SU), Creamy Caramel (SU), Ranger Distress Antique Linen

Accessories: Cloud Template, 2-Way Glue Pen, Scrap Paper, Sponge Daubers, Masking Tape

Thanks you so much for sharing this awesome tutorial Kim, love to see how you've created so much more depth with a stamped image!!!

I was so sad to see I had missed your Tombow brush marker tutorial at MCC, is there any chance perhaps you do one again in the future?
