Video: Pointilism-Colouring (And a sneaky peak)

Hello there!

What about some inspiration?
Last week I though about art-techniques that I learned at school and remembered pointilism. Well, at school we did this with brushes (exhausting, because you have to be so so so careful!) and I wanted to incorporate this technique to a card. Well, it's fun!

Have you ever tried this? I'm sure some of you did. What medium do you use?
I went for alcohol based markers and Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens - LOVE! But I guess this would also work with colored pencils - maybe even with crayons. If you have any experiences - let me know :)

Okay, let's get to my card. See that little squirrel? WANT that little squirrel? Well, this is one of the images from our first release, so this is a tiny sneak on what's coming up. Wooohooooo! :)
The team loves that little guy - so do I. (Insert puffy hearts here!) I know many of you will love it as well.
I am still waiting for the stamps to arrive, so I used a printed version of that image. But it's the final size of the stamp.

Sidenote: A Guest-Designer spot will be given away next week and our Guest Designer will be one of the first persons EVER to get one of our stamp sets. So stay tuned and keep your eyes open if you would like to be the one :)

The sentiment is from Elle's Studio - beautiful, right? The background was created with some cutting files from Lori Whitlock (her designs are amazing!), some Scrapbook Adhesives and Simon Says Stamp Inks. Check out the video for all the instructions!

Thanks so much for stopping by. More sneaks of the upcoming release are already waiting - so son't forget to follow our Blog. And there's always a ton of inspiration on our facebook-page - we're looking forward to your visit :)
