WATERCOLOR CLASS

Made two cards this afternoon - can't remember for which days tho.  Have found that I have the most success with distress inks tho.  The first card is emboss resist.
I used my cheap watercolors for the background in sort of a light gray.  There are 3 layers of stacking on the "happy".
This card was done in distress inks by inking the stamps and demonstrated by Jennifer R.  The design came from a video done by Jennifer M.  I stamped the "happy" in the center and then covered it with post-it tape to keep that area clean.  I did test several kinds of ink before deciding on the distress inks.

I do like making these cards with just "happy" on the front.  Then I can put whatever inside.

Supplies:
Stamps: MFT Easter Bunny; HA Flourish Background
Inks: Ranger distress - Peeled Paint, Pickled Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon
Other: Wplus9 die; Strathmore cold press watercolor paper;  MME enamel dots; HA embossing powder

Thanks for looking and your kind comments.  Betty

  8. Lovely cards, the pink flowers really caught my eye. That's a great idea stamping just happy on the front and then the card can be used for lots of things!
