Hello, crafty friends! Today I’m up on the Hero Arts blog with a watercolor card. Where do you draw your inspiration from? It’s not usual for me but this time I got inspired by yummy colors from Neon Ombre Ink: Chartreuse to Blue.
I started by stamping the Alphabet Soup Bold Prints on a piece of white cardstock measured at 4″x5.5″ using Neon Ombre Ink: Chartreuse to Blue. Then I stamped the images from Balloon Animal Birthday with black ink on some watercolor paper.
I loosely watercolored my balloons with Peerless Watercolors, trying not not to color entire space as I love the white spaces left here and there. Next, I die cut the colored images using coordinating dies and popped them up on the card front.
This is a video showing you how I created my card. You can watch the video tutorial here or in HD on YouTube.
I’ve been intimidated by watercoloring for a long time, but now I’m getting more comfortable with using watercolors for my projects. That doesn’t mean my watercoloring is good enough, though. I just find myself having fun watercoloring these days. 🙂
That’s all I have for today! I hope you enjoyed seeing my card and got some inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!
