Meow you doing? // Card Creations

August 10, 2017

Hello crafters and welcome back! I'm sticking with the same sort of theme this week with my cards. If you saw Tuesday's post, you'll know that I created a watercolor background using Crayola markers. I wanted to do that again, but a softer pastel look. I picked out some blues, light greens, and lilac as my background colors. 

I used a large piece of watercolor paper to pick up the ink. To achieve the soft look, I used a lot of water so the marker color would disperse more evenly. So, I followed the same steps as my other example. I scribbled markers on to my Ranger craft mat and sprayed them with my water. I then took the large piece of paper and laid on to the color. I did push down to help the colors blend more easily. Then, I picked the paper up and set it aside to dry. 

While it was drying, I stamped two adorable images from the Lawn Fawn cat stamp set. I stamped the cat and the bed using Memento black ink on to watercolor paper. Then, I used my watercolor set and colored them in loosely. I wanted brighter colors on these images so they would pop against the background piece. I then set those aside to dry. While I as waiting for everything to dry, I stamped out my sentiment. I used Memento black ink n the phrase "meow you doin'?" on a small strip of white cardstock. I added a slanted edge at the end to give it more interest.

After the background was completely dry (I left mine overnight), I wanted to add more detail to the background. I used this paw print stamp from the same Lawn Fawn sent and heat embossed them with WOW! gold glitter embossing powder. They add just a hint of fun on this cute card. Lastly, I assembled everything together. To add even more texture and interest, I used some embroidery floss behind me main image.

These pictures don't do the best justice at showing off the beautiful soft colors in the background piece, so you'll just have to try the technique out for yourself. I hope you enjoyed this fun little greeting card. If you have any questions please leave them in the comments and I'll be happy to answer! Thanks for stopping by!
