Single Layer Stamped Watercolour Card

with No Comments

This is the final project for the My Favorite Things Camp Create! They have been so great this summer at keeping us crafters crafting through the summer. I don’t want to think that summer is almost at an end, but I can feel it, as the temperature is starting to cool down outside. But as summer comes to a close, that also means that autumn is on its way! I love a cool breeze, and the changing colours of the leaves. I can’t wait to make some more fall cards!

Back to summertime, and this card. The stamp set is the My Favorite Things I Knead you, and Cool Cats. I used a watercolour panel that I die cut with a stitched border. I stamped my images in Memento black die ink. I then used my Gansai watercolours to colour them in!

Don’t ask me how to watercolour, I am kind of just winging it right now. I blot my image a lot, because I don’t want my ink to run, and that also makes the colour look a lot more pastel like, which adds a soft summer element to my card.

These two look just like my two kitties!

Here is my final card, which is a single layer of stamping, and then glued down onto a 4.25 x 11 inch card base which is folded halfway at 5.5 inches.

 

Thank Mew
