I was playing around with watercolor wash backgrounds over the weekend and thought they would be great for Easter. I made these with my silicone craft mat and reinkers. Just add some water, a few drops of ink, and squish your paper down. For the green one, I just placed it down carefully and for the pink one, I did that and then moved it and swiped it around a little.
For this card, I used Teeny Tiny Wishes (it's been around for-ev-er so don't forget about it) to randomly stamp on the background. I liked it so much I decided it didn't even need a "real" sentiment! For this bunny, I stamped and embossed him on regular whisper white and used my colored pencils and a blender pen to color him. If you have the Lots of Happy Card Kit, you have a lemon lime twist colored pencil!!!! I think smokey slate and lemon lime look fabulous together, especially for Easter! Remember, sometimes simple is good so you can make a really cool card with only two colors!
For my pink card, I waited until my background was dry (same for above card before stamping, too) and used my sweet sugarplum and flirty flamingo markers to splatter. I had watercolored it with powder pink and flirty flamingo.And can I say how much I love powder pink, sweet sugar plum, and soft suede together???? For this bunny, I embossed him or her with soft suede ink on watercolor paper and watercolored. It's hard to see in the photo, but I added some lace trim and tiny pearls as well. A couple of bits of washi tape finish it off! I love that this one is mailable, too!
You better get used to seeing these banners because I just got them and I CANNOT stop using them and I'm not sorry! I think I got all my supplies listed. It was a LOT!
Happy stamping! Product List
