Video: Simple Watercolored Arranged with Love

Hello! Sorry for no video last week, did you miss me??  Today I will try to make up for it by showing you how to create a simple card that looks like anything but with the intricately detailed Arranged with Love frame stamp and waterbased markers. Blended colors with Zig Clean Color markers and a brush create bold and subtle tones, and the gold embossing makes it extra special.  Watercoloring is both freeing and forgiving, and produces a dramatic, one-of-a-kind card every time! This frame and its year round greetings (now in clear!) work for any season just by changing the color palette. Please enjoy!  If you like coloring *these* flowers, consider A Year of Flowers also,  a must have set for your stamping tool box!!

Also, just a heads up, the video *was* viewing fine for me, but now for some reason it keeps wanting to start in the middle around 7 minutes! ?? PLEASE, just slide the bar back to the beginning at 0:00, it should play fine and in its entirety, does for me (and also tarts properly where it should while I view in all my edit and preview modes!  Don't know what's up with that, I put in a ticket to Youtube!)

LOVED the video (as always) ... LOVE the stamp set ... have them all! Have the Zig Markers too ... a smaller set. I couldn't figure out where to find the best price on the markers though ... did I miss something? Thanks so much Melanie, for your wonderful inspiration again ... always look forward to your video tutorials!! Hugs and blessings, Geraldine
