Hello, and welcome to the Celebrating Parents card drive blog hop. If you came from the amazing Aga’s blog, you are right on track! Today the design team girls are sharing some fabulous projects using new stamps to support seniors who are in nursing homes or shelters.
Altenew is donating 20% of all profits from these stamp sets to support seniors. You can find more details about the card drive HERE and I hope you can join this great cause by sending handmade cards.
I created a Father’s Day card using the Best Dad stamp set. While I was making this card, I wished I could send it to my dad. It’s been 12 years since he died unexpectedly. I wasn’t close to my dad at all and I wasn’t a sweet daughter either which I deeply regret.
Since I’m into watercoloring these days, I decided to go out of my comfort zone by trying new watercolor medium which is Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
To be honest, I almost gave up and went for Copic coloring. But I’m glad that I stuck with watercoloring until I finished my card. That doesn’t mean that I love how it turned out, though.
I made a video tutorial to show you how I created my watercolor card. You can watch the video here or in HD on YouTube:
