A Watercolor Critter Card

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing a watercolor critter card. I combined the Lawnscaping Challenge (Watercoloring) and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Create With Critters) for this.




Here comes a cute little Valentine's Day card:


I started with a panel of watercolor paper that I had trimmed slightly smaller than my pink card base. Then I masked off stripes and applied watercolor (some stripes were made with Distress Ink mixed with water, some with Gelatos mixed with water). After it was dried,  I stamped the heart trail and the sentiment and adhered the panel to the card. I stamped and colored the little critter and the wheel and die-cut them with the matching dies. Now I adhered them to the card with foam tape and finished the card off with sequins. 


I love playing with watercolors! And cute little critter stamps :) 
Thanks for visiting!
