Hello! Welcome back to another day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration week! Today we are playing with some “simply” wonderful sets, Simply Celebrate & Simply Sentiments. These two stamps sets were designed to work together an allow for quickly made simple cards.
For this card I tried something out of my comfort zone, free flowing watercolor. I do struggle with things I can’t control, which is why I don’t watercolor very often. I really should practice more. But in the mean time I tried something simple. Full disclosure it did take me three attempts it looking presentable. I stamped the stars with antique linen ink first just so I could see their placement. This let me see where to start my watercolor stripes.
I created the stripes by smooshing some distress ink on my craft mat, adding a little water then pulling the color from the star to the edge of the paper. I flicked some white gold watercolor droplets over the colors once they were dry. Then I stamped the stars again in black and the sentiment as well. I finished it off with some black twine and then popped it up on foam adhesive on the card base.
