I printed and numbered all my followers as they appeared on the list of followers on my sidebar. I counted the last person on the last page as number "1" and the first person on the first page as number "573". This makes the winners as follows:

CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners!!! You have until midnight EST on Saturday July 18th to contact me with your full name and mailing address. Find my e-mail address on my profile page.
Thank you for playing everyone!! Sorry if you didn't win, but I would love to do other blog contests! It was very fun to play Santa Claus for awhile, and I only wish I could have had more winners, as I hate leaving anyone out. Perhaps next time you will be the lucky one!
A special thank you to everyone who entered, the response was overwhelming! And for leaving such SWEET, KIND comments, that lifted me up! What a great bunch of people, you bloggers are! Hugz all around!!!
Now on to new business...
I have created a video to demonstrate how I watercolor a stamped image! I am quite excited and hope it is the first of many to come, depending on the response it gets. So let me know how it turned out for you, and if you would appreciate more videos! I finally got tekkie enough to do them! lol (with loads of help from Mike of course ;-) )
EDITED TO ADD: I forgot to tell you the important ingredients to watercoloring a stamped image!! I have tried out a handful of water color papers to see which is best to stamp on, and found that THE best, BY FAR, is by Canson and comes in a pad at Michael's or other fine art supply stores. It is called 140 lb. Cold Press, Montval, by Canson. And the ink of choice is Versafine Onyx Black. You can't use Tuxedo Black by Memento, as it is not waterproof, so the ink will run with water. You can use Stayzon, however, you have to practically get an elephant to stand on your stamp to get a good impression; Stayzon doesn't like water color paper!
In case you have trouble seeing this video in Blogger, I am linking you up to where it is on You Tube:
I have never made or uploaded a video demo before, so I would appreciate the feedback. IF you can spare a minute, please let me know:
1) Did you have any trouble viewing the Blogger video or the You Tube video?
2) Which video is better quality (if you can view both)
3) Do you prefer to see/hear a video such as this, or would you rather I keep making tutorials with still pictures, as I have done in the past?
The dog image "Watson" is from the brand new release at High Hopes, and the sentiment stamp, which is older can be found here. The rest of the sentiment, which I am putting on the inside, says, "your birthday!"
I doodled the string that comes down from the Martha Stewart punched balloon, and attaches to his tail. I used Stickles on the party hat and Diamond Dust glitter (crushed glass) on the balloon for sparkle. And now here is the card I made using Watson the dog, which you watched me paint in the video demo:
And here is a close up of Watson for you:
Thanks for visiting, thanks for your valuable feedback, and congratulations to the winners of my blog candy!
