This is a cute little card, I think. I like the way this little watercolor piece turned out. I started out watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper with Merry Merlot, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana and Pool Party. I had no idea out it would turn out. The first piece was not quite what I was wanting, so I tried again. This time I cut a smaller piece and watercolored it. After watercoloring about 3/4th of the piece, I thought “Oh that looks like a sunset at the beach with the Red Tide coming into shore.
I used the 2 inch layering square framelits to cut the piece from the Iarger piece I had watercolored. I used a black Stampin Write Marker to draw the two birds.
I cut a panel 4 x 5-1/4 from Whisper White cardstock and embossed using the Seaside TIEF. I popped this on the Whisper White card base using Stampin Dimensionals. I then popped the watercolored pieced onto the embossed panel. The thanks greeting on the from is from the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set. I stamped it using Merry Merlot Stampin Pad on a scrap of the piece I had watercolored. I drew around the stamp that the word Thanks was on and fussy cut it. I popped it below the watercolor square.
The inside sentiment is also from the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set. I probably should have watercolored then stamped, so since I didn’t I used my heat tool to dry the sentiment I had stamped in Black Memento Ink. I sponged the colors around the sentiment and then used an Aqua Painter to spread the ink around very carefully, so I would not mess up the sentiment. I discovered that was a great way to watercolor, sponge the color on dry and then use water.
That’s it for today. Visit again, there will be more another day.
