Welcome to my blog. Do you like to craft on the go! Well i just love to. Creating with less supplies and on clock makes me more focused. Recently i was traveling and decided to experiment with watercolors.
I ended up making these watercolor backgrounds on the move. Once i came home, i turned them into bookmarks for my son, hubby & sis-in law.
They all love to read. I wish i read as much as they do. “Read more” is always on my resolution list, right next to “eat less”. Lol!!
I punched the holes and threaded twine and to convert these tags with watercolor background into bookmarks, all I had to do was heat emboss in black these lovely and adorable images from the stamp set “Silly book monsters” by Your Next Stamp.
Hope you like these. do let me know what do you think about these and if you too love to craft on the go.
To make this card I first heat embossed with white on a water color card stock. The stampset is from simon says stamp, it’s called “look for the miracles”.
To match the design on the sketch I used ink squooshing technique with distress oxide inks. The emboss resist technique works so well with these inks.
I then added golden thread and sequins before sticking the white heat embossed ‘Thank you’ sentiment on a black card stock with foam squares for dimension. I loved the small detail near the sentiment on the sketch and added one on mine too.
To match the variety of white foliage in the sketch, I added white die cut leaves. I wanted these new additional leaves to be different than the ones already embossed in texture and shape. I love how the additional leaves tied in with the card.
To finish the card, I stuck my card panel on to a black card base that is slightly bigger so that it will provide a border to the white card front.
I had a great time playing along with the challenges and making this card.
Hope you like it. Do let me know what you think about it in the comments section.
