This month I am going to blow up your inbox with so many birthday wishes your are going to think it is YOUR special day! Next to Christmas cards, birthday cards are my most made and sent cards. My guess is that it is yours too so get ready for tons of inspiration. Find card 1 HERE, card 2 HERE, card 3 HERE, card 4 HERE, card 5 HERE, card 6 HERE, card 7 HERE.
Here it is, the last card in the Birthday Bonanza and it is the first card featuring the Sand and Sea Suite. Ok, so I am not really a beach person but Sidney is and you know how that goes. Personally, I love to watercolor but I have been taking a little break from it because there are so many exciting techniques to try out there.
This card brings us back to watercolors is a very simple way- a water color wash. The base is Soft Sea foam followed by fluid 100 (our watercolor paper) which I washed in Soft Sea Foam. The way to get that beautiful gradient of color is to wet the paper first. Add Reinker to the lid of your stamp pad, pick up color with the brush then swirl over the paper. Need more depth? Add some more on top, it will all mesh together and be perfectly imperfect. **Make sure to let it dry before adhering to the base or anything to the top, now is a good time to fussy cut as I mention below**
Cut a piece of Soft Sea Foam and stamp your sentiment in PEAR PIZZAZ. Soft Sea Foam was too soft! Then fussy cut some shells from that incredible Sand & Sea Designer series paper. Add some Opal rounds and you are done!
