Welcome friends! I have a sweet watercolor card to share with you today featuring Jane’s Doodles stamps and stencil, paired with my new LH Colors watercolors for some sparkle and texture in the background.
I knew I wanted to create a card with these sweet kitties and pups from the Jane’s Doodles Cats and Dogs digital stamp set, so I printed them out and colored them with my copic markers. I used the scan-n-cut to cut the image out and set it aside to play with a watercolor background.
I cut an oversized panel of watercolor paper and slopped some water on it with a big brush. Then I added limeade and pool party from the LH Colors Summer Fun collection randomly on the paper. I heat dried it a couple of times in the middle to get some layers but when I was finished I wanted it to have more texture. So, I pulled out the Hearts stencil and inked it with salvaged patina distress oxide ink. Then I splattered some watered down twisted citron distress oxide on the panel to bring in the limeade watercolor. Once the panel was dry I cut it down with the largest of the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies.
Last, I inked a white panel with twisted citron distress oxide ink for my base panel but didn’t like how bright it was so I toned it down with tea dye distress oxide very lightly. I glued that panel to a card base and popped up the watercolor panel with foam tape. Before adding my critters, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Love You and cut it out with a Pink & Main Large Sentiment Strip die.
Finally, I added the sentiment strip and critters with foam squares on the lower right corner of the card. To finish things off I just added glossy accents to all of their noses.
