Hey Foxy: Faux Watercoloring with Inktense Blocks

Hi everyone! I’m sharing a quick video on a card I made using our new Hey Foxy stamp set.

gray fox hello video

I have a new video set up in my craft room and it makes it really easy to shoot videos. That is the reason why I have been periscoping up the wazoo (follow me at @thetonstamps to watch my scoping shenanigans). Here is my short video on how I created this card.

I created a light watercolor look by using my Inktense Blocks to color in my fox. I use the black inktense blocks with a little bit of blue (do you like gray blue foxes?). I have said previously that I really like using my inktense blocks to create a faux watercolor look. They’re easy to use!

If you’ve been following us on Instagram or Facebook, you know that I’m getting addicted to periscoping. ย I’ve been doing more broadcasts showing watercoloring and inktense coloring. ย I’m also doing a fabulous and fun weekly collaboration with my friend, Laurel Beard, where we broadcast and hop onto each other’s scopes (Laurel – @lbeard ย – Me – @thetonstamps) when one is done using one technique or a stamp set or whatever! We even did a crazy 10 minute card making challenge ๐Ÿ™‚ We don’t have any set dates or times but to get notice of when we scope, follow our social media accounts because we usually post our periscope notice about half an hour we start broadcasting. ย The scopes are so much fun to do and we love hearing everyone’s comments!

Hope to see you all on our periscopes and thanks for stopping by!

    I love the card. I just received that stamp set in the mail, haven’t used it yet. We have two fox families on our property and have enjoyed watching the spring babies grow over the summer. They have been really comfortable playing in our yard.
