Hi, Everyone, this is Charlotte C, and thank you, Sheila, for once again allowing me to share a little project with your followers.
I decided to make some note cards for the moms of my daughters-in-law for Mother’s Day and I thought this might be a good time to try watercoloring with my Distress Markers. I knew they’d be kind at my first attempt and I’m hoping you will be too.
The stamps used are from Close To My Heart. I stamped on watercolor paper with Ranger Archival Ink; then, using my craft sheet as a palette, I scribbled the colors on it and used a brush dipped in water to color the flower (thank you, Jennifer McGuire, for that tip) shaded around it in blue. I used The Timeless Texture Stack of printed paper (it’s very lightweight) from DCWV for the green background layer and ¼” strips of chocolate brown textured CS on each side of the watercolored panel. Doing this added no weight to the card, just texture. For the folder I used double-sided card stock, fastened it closed with Velcro on dotted ribbon and added a quote from my stash of things I forgot I own.
Thank you for stopping by here at She’s a Sassy Lady. Hope you like this. Have a happy crafty week.
