Stencil + Watercolor

Hello,

I have 2 simple cards to share with you today.  2 similar cards made for 2 crafty friends who share their birthday on the same day :)

Here they are :)


I started by distressing Bielo cardstock with mustard distress ink. Once the blending was complete, I placed the Daisy Cluster stencil from TCW, and dabbed on the open areas using a wet wipe. I then cut the panel diagonally to make 2 cards. Added a border punched piece to add some interest, and embellished with a simple handmade flower from Itsy Bitsy. The sentiment is stamped from Mudra's Let's Party stampset, and distressed the borders again :)

Birthday Butterfly

Hello,

Today I have a quick card that I made for a friend's birthday.



I took a watercolor cardstock and stamped the butterfly from Mudra using Versamark ink. It is then embossed using gold embossing powder and heat gun. I then used the smooshing technique for the background. Took Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean distress inks on an acentate sheet, and sprayed a fine mist of water. Once the colors blended, I placed the cardstock face down on the acetate sheet. That gives a beautiful background. To add more interest, I sprayed a little of Lime Splash from Itsy Bitsy's Color Splash. The green added a great effect. Then I splattered a few drops of Hot Pink from Color Splash. Once I was satisfied with the bg, I mounted the panel onto my base white cs and added a sentiment from Mudra's Let's Party stampset using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
