Happy weekend everyone! I have a fun little slimline watercolor card to share with you today. Every once in a while I just get the itch to watercolor and get messy so that’s what I did for this bright, fun oops, forgot your birthday card.
To start, I stamped and heat embossed my images from Jane’s Doodles Under the Sea stamp set. Then I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush pen to watercolor all of them. When I do this, I really prefer either watercolor paper or bristol smooth. These markers blend so well on them! After they were dry I used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out.
Next I die cut a mini slimline stitched panel and inked it up with distress oxide inks – gathered twigs for the ground and salty ocean with cracked pistachio for the water. Then I stamped some other images and a sentiment on them with VersaFine onxy black ink. I find this ink sits on top of the oxides really well and dries perfectly!
Finally, I added foam squares to my images and popped them all in place. Then I used liquid glue to adhere my panel to a card base measuring 3×6 inches and created a mini slimline envelope to go with it!
I mean, at least it’s a happy looking card to apologize for messing up. Haha! Am I right?!? 😉
