For this edition of Create a card I decided to try a technique that I’ve noticed a lot in blog land – creating backgrounds with watercolors. I recently purchased the Koi travel watercolor set at The Paperie and I love it and will definitely be using it – so convenient to take to crops and the cabin etc.
Here is my card:
For this card I used the following supplies:
- Stars a plenty Die
- Big Shot (not shown)
- Zig glue pen
- acrylic block
- Hero arts CL483 Stamp set (Happy Birthday sentiment)
- Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
- Koi watercolour set (not shown)
- Neenah solar white card stock
First I used a water brush (one comes with the set) and created circles using several bright colors directly on my card base. I die cut two sets of the stars and adhered them using the Zig glue – love that it dries clear. I randomly placed a few sequins to give it a little sparkle and stamped my sentiment – very easy card!
