Hello, crafty friends! Welcome to a new challenge hosted by bastel-traum! Edition no. 46 is all about watercolors. I love this medium - it is so forgiving and versatile!
That cutie is a stamp from CC Designs and the series is called "Swiss Pixies". This was an express order for a baby shower party, so I thought this fits perfectly - a cute little girl sitting in an umbrella :-)
I colored the image with a whole bunch of different water soluble colors - a bit of ZIG real brush pens, Tombow markers, pebeo watercolors and for some details colored pencils, too! That is what I love about watercoloring - you can mix and match every medium you like - as long as it is water soluble :-)
The background panel is made with distress inks (cracked pistachio and blueprint sketch). I just smooshed it with a piece of acetate onto my card panel and let it dry by air (drying with a heat tool works as well, but you will get a different look on the paper).
For more fun going on I created a shaker card, filled with bits an pieces of glittery stars, hearts and some beads for a nice sound while shaking it :-) I always save the acetate pieces of packaging; they are mostly very sturdy and nice for shaker windows!
The sentiment on the black cardstock is heat embossed. And that is it already! :-D
I hope you got inspired and I would love to see you playing along with us!
Hugs and have an awesome day!
