Hi!  Today I have a quick but so sweet card to share with you today.

I don’t often pull off Clean and Simple cards – but I just loved how he turned out.  This little guy is from the A Little Wild set – great for little ones as well as big ones.  I used Watercolor Pencils – Early Espresso and Daffodil Delight to color the images.   The Designer Series Paper strip is from the Delightful Daisy pack.  My sentiment is from the Eastern Beauty set – I just love the font – and is stamped in Old Olive.

What do you think?  Would this card put a smile on your face if it arrived in the mail?  Yes?  Then leave a comment below and I’ll email you for your address and make one of these cuties to send you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Watercolor Sympathy

Hi.  How are you today?  I hope doing well.  Did you get some crafty time in over the weekend?  I did!  I had a class on Friday night featuring the Sharing Sweet Thoughts RMHC set and then on Saturday I did a workshop for a lovely hostess.  One of the cards I shared with them, was this card on Watercoloring.

Artistically Asian, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Watercoloring, SU!, Stampin' Up!The background is created using an Aquapainter and watercolor paper.  The colors from bottom to top are Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Pool Party.  The image is stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink.   I was very happy with how it turned out and the guests just loved it.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink as well.

The base layer is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side.  The Crumb Cake layer is 4 x 5 1/4″.  The water color paper is 2 1/2 x 4 1/4″ making the black layer 2 3/4 x 4 1/4″.  I tied a piece of Linen Thread around the image to finish it off.  This is a very quick card and just needs a little drying time – which you can speed up with a heat gun if needed.  I highly recommend letting the watercolor dry completely before stamping the image.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project!  You can find all elements used on this card in my on-line store here.
