It’s Justine and thank you so much for joining me for my first ever video for Pretty Pink Posh! I am hosting a very large event today called Save the Crafty YouTuber and Pretty Pink Posh is sponsoring 6x $25 gift certificates in today’s video! So be sure to head to video directly on YouTube so you can leave a comment.
I am hosting this event with over 55 videomakers that have come together to help out some of the crafters just starting to make videos. YouTube has changed some rules about who is allowed to earn money from their channels and many are at risk so I put together a hop with plenty of prizes to help increase views and subscribers before the end of February. There are 120 prizes being given away throughout the video hop, so the more videos you click and comment on, the more chances you have to win! You can see the whole list of videos on my blog!
For the batch of pink cards, I used Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks for the background. I blended them on the cardstock and added water to see the oxidized effect occur. My tips for perfect blending are: Don’t put too much pressure on the handle and allow the colour to build up slowly, start off the paper and work your way into it, move the colour around in a circular motion to avoid harsh lines.
For the batch of blue cards, I used Peacock Feathers, Broken Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide inks for the background. I blended them on the cardstock and added water to see the oxidized effect occur. The nice thing about the oxides is that they are much more user friendly for blending than the originals.
