New Friday Feature Posts and a Watercolor Card

I have decided to do a Friday Feature post from now on, and to start...the first five weeks of Fridays are going to be easy but effective watercolor cards.

After the watercolor cards, there are many other features coming up such as product features (where I create several cards from one stamp set), my favorite card artists features (where I CASe two cards from my favorite card artists), a watercolor pencil comparison, and so on!

I am so excited to get started, so here is the first in the easy but effective watercolor cards feature:

I am totally smitten with watercolors, and even though I've been an acrylic painter for years, trying watercolors has me anxious lol.  So I've started with some super easy techniques for card makers, and hopefully one day I will be far more capable lol.

I created this card by first embossing the sentiment from Lawn Fawn "Scripty Sayings" stamp set with champagne embossing powder from Recollections (from Michael's).  Then I created the background with my Kuretake watercolors.  Its really hard to see in the picture but there is some pearl added in there with the aqua colors/  The ribbon is Swiss Dots from Crafty Ribbons.

Super simple, but effective, plus it gives me a chance to just play!

Come back next Friday for watercolor card #2, where I get to play with a brand new watercolor medium :)
