VIDEO + 10K GIVEAWAY: Storybook Watercolor

Happy Monday!

Today I'm sharing a very special milestone. If you are subscribed to our YouTube Channel then you know that we have recently passed 10,0000 subscribers. WHAT?! I know. I can hardly believe that that many of you enjoy my videos enough to subscribe!

I can't express how much I appreciate each of you that watch, leave comments and questions, subscribe and thumbs up (and even those thumbs down - although a comment of why would help me to improve).

The best way that I can think of to share this milestone with all of you - because it wouldn't happen without you - is to do a giveaway!

Watch above for all of the details or you can watch in HD at YouTube

In the video, I share how to recreate this watercolored storybook illustration look using Distress Inks and the popular Unforgettable stamp set. I know that this set is currently sold out, but I did order more based on your feedback during the Instagram sneak peeks, so you shouldn't have to wait too long for it to become available again if you missed it.

Be sure to watch until the end to get the details on the giveaway - which includes this adorable Elephant Parade watercolor.

Giveaway Details

Just leave a comment on the video over on our YouTube Channel by February 21, 2015 to enter. The winner will be posted by February 24, 2015. I am requesting that you subscribe to our YouTube Channel when you enter - if you haven't already.

Please Note: If for some reason you are unable to comment on YouTube, you can leave a comment on this post to enter the giveaway.

Another Giveaway

Speaking of 10,000 subscribers...the very talented Sandy Allnock has also reached this milestone and is having a giveaway as well! Be sure to visit her YouTube channel to get all of the details. If you are unfamiliar with Sandy's work, you are in for a treat. Not only is she a wonderful artist, she is a beautiful person with a heart of gold. Make sure you have some time carved out to watch her videos, she is amazing!
