Hi! I hope you are enjoying the weekend! I had a little time to make a card for the Watercolor Blog Hop that is being hosted by Pretty Pink Posh. Be sure to stop over at their blog for lots of inspiration!
I love the soft, pretty look of watercolors. The watercoloring on my card is done with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors. I am just a beginning when it comes to watercoloring but I love the quality of these paints.
I started by creating the flowers with the Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamp Set, Bohemian Garden. I stamped the flowers on Ranger Watercolor Paper in white ink and then embossing with white embossing powder.
Next I cut out the flowers and the leaves with the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Bohemian Garden.
Next I created the pocket for the shaker portion of the card. I watercolored with soft yellow paint, let it dry, and then stamped a sentiment from the Essentials by Ellen Stamp Set, Mondo Magnolia. I dropped in a combination of pretty sequins for Pretty Pink Posh, and then added a piece of acetate between the card front and the card back.
The final touch is two of my favorite stick pins from Maya Road, the Leaf Trinket Pins.
Thanks for stopping by!!
