Hello, hello! Paper Smooches is having another Guest Designer Search for May, and of course, I decided to enter! I initially made the magic card for my friend's daughter, but since it was quite involved, I decided to keep it as a template for future cards and make something else. I thought it would be really cool to try watercolors even though I haven't been too successful with them in the past and this time they turned out super cool! I have liked the look of paint splatter since I was a little girl and this took me back :)
This was such an amazing transformation for me and looking back, I wish I would have taken pictures of the process. It started off with a sheet of watercolor paper and I was able to use Distress Inks to make this really cool splattered paint effect. After the paper dried, I added some more splatters to parts that looked a little bare, then had to let it dry again before adhering it to a card base. I colored the adorable unicorn with Copic markers, then embossed the Happy Birthday stamp in the corner. I love this stamp! It was another one of my yard sale finds :) Man, I love yard sales because I can find the best bargains!
Here's a supply list of what I used:
Canson Watercolor Paper
Spectrum Stamp Set (Paper Smooches)
Happy Birthday Stamp (Inkadinkado)
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you liked the card!
