Watercolor Background Card

Hi everybody! I was asked if I'd like to play with some more Spellbinders products and happily agreed :)
So I am sharing a fun card made with the cute set Friends of a Feather from Debi Adams today.

This toucan needed a pretty background to shine on, so I created a green watercolor background for it:


I first wet the watercolor paper and then applied the green colors with a wide brush in a wavy motion. After everything was dried, I adhered the panel to the card and added tiny ink droplets. Now I stamped the images, colored them with Copics, fussy-cut everything and adhered them to the card.

Finally, I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it.


I love this bird, how about you? I'll be back soon with another card I made with a Spellbinders set! Thanks for stopping by!

Blue Watercolor City

What? Another post? Yes, I enjoyed playing with my watercolors and made a card for the MFT Color Challenge 95. And then I realized it is closed already! Well done, Vanessa!

But I'll share my card nevertheless. And I'll enter it to the SSS Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes :)

Here is my blue, yellow, kraft, white creation:


After I had colored the houses with blue watercolors, I stamped the sentiment and adhered the panel to the card base. Then I stamped the balloon, colored it with Copics, fussy-cut it, tied-on string and adhered it with foam tape.


Thank you for stopping by today!

Flying Corgi

Hello everyone! If there is anybody still there? It's been silent on my blog due to life! But here I am, sharing a card I made with cute Winnie & Walter products.


I first created my own stencil with the Big Balloon Cutaways and used it to create my soft background on a piece of white cardstock. After I had adhered the panel to the card base, I stamped the corgi from Dog-gone Cute with Evelin T Designs, colored it with Copics and fussy-cut the image. I die-cut a balloon from white cardstock, inked it with an ink blending tool, tied-on string to connect it to the dog and adhered both with foam tape.


Now I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from Sentimental: Birthday onto a strip of blue cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it to the card. Finally, I added blue enamel dots.

This dog is so adorable, don't you agree? I'll enter this card to the SSS Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by!
