I dived into the watercolors for today's cards! It was fun to have all the paints and brushes out again. I didn't get fancy and just had fun blending up the backgrounds.
First up is my card for the Lawnscaping Challenge to use watercolors. I used a mix of blue and green colors to blend a ocean for my sailboat.
Once my paper was completely dry, I heat embossed the sailboat in black and paper pieced the sails to help them sand out from the water. I took my glue pen to draw waves and little stars, then covered it in teal glitter.
I double stamped the sentiment from "Chit Chat" then filled in the bubble with Glossy Accents.
My second card is for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is embossing. I pulled out a texture plate from Spellbinders for the background and used heat embossing for the sentiment and my little gnome.
I love this little gnome! The stamps are from Unity Stamp Co "What's up Gnomey?" and "Tumbleweed Houses".
The woodgrain embossed paper helped my watercolors blend really well. The colors would seep along the lines in the paper, and I really love how they blended. I also heat embossed the gnome and colored him with Prismacolor Pencils.
I had fun with these challenges and got out some tools I don't normally play with. Thanks for stopping by :)
