Online Card Class - More Water Coloring!



After watching Shari’s video on Friday demonstrating water coloring on an embossed background with Distress Markers in the ‘Watercolor For Cardmakers’ class, I decided to create this card based on the current Hero Arts Spring Sketch Challenge (Sketch # 1).




After embossing the background with white EP, I used distress markers with water and a paint brush for the triangles. The leaves were inked on the Hero Arts Night Flower Stencil with Green Hills, and the sentiment is from my brand new stamp set, Hello Sunshine Daisies.

So, that’s it for me today...Sending you all my best wishes for a Happy Mother’s Day ~ Thanks so much for stopping by!



Supplies:
Stamps: Hero Arts - Tiny Flags, Hello Sunshine Daisies
Ink: Hero Arts - Green Hills; Versafine - Onyx Black
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink - Stamper’s Select White, Spring Rain
Markers: Tim Holtz Distress Markers- Broken China, Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, Peacock Feathers, Victorian Velvet
Dies: Spellbinders - Large Circle
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh
