Water Coloring is Relaxing

What do you do when you want to relax?

One thing I know for sure is that you don’t want to watch a football game!

For all intents and purposes, we should have won that game yesterday!  But we didn’t!

So Ann and I went into the stamp room and got out a card to watercolor.  Yep.  It’s a great way to relax and get some practice in.

And since I haven’t had her hold the Aqua Painter a lot lately, she kind of needed it to make this perfect card for the end of a beautiful Summer.

  • Berry Burst
  • Sweet Sugarplum
  • Garden Green
  • Wild Wasabi (for those little leaves in the front)

Card Making Tips

This card is far from perfect, but here are a few things to think about.

  • Don’t be afraid to add your own ideas:
    • We brushed a bit of Garden Green between the leaves to make them appear connected.
    • There was a lot of “negative space” so Ann dotted some Wile Wasabi between the small leaves with her Aqua Painter.
  • The Foil Snowflakes aren’t just for Christmas Cards.
  • ALWAYS do your shadowing first.  (I’m just barking here.)

And here are the two stamp sets that you can find in Ann’s online store.

  1. Who wouldn’t love to receive this birthday card?! I really like the way the snowflake works with the shape of the tulips. Colors – so pretty. Shading – just the right touch.

  2. Love the colors in this card and the accent with the snowflake is perfect!
