Your Time to Soar

Hi there! Amber up today with...you guessed it...a watercolor card, lol! Once I'm hooked on a technique, I don't come up for air apparently, lol!! I have a quick one to share today, super simple and lots of fun!


I started off with a 3.75x5 piece of watercolor paper. I cut an adhesive sheet with a circle die and stuck the adhesive sheet down on my watercolor paper. **Disclaimer: This was just an experiement, hadn't expected it to come out so well** 

Once the paper was stuck down, I pulled out my Gansai Tambi Watercolors and brushed three shades of blue on the paper. I hit it with my heat too and then pulled the tape away and had my negative circle with colorcolor paint around it! You can see where the watercolor seeped under a little bit, but that's okay with me! In my art journaling and mixed media escapades, I've learned to embrace little mistakes and turn them into something great! 

I took out my doodle pens and scribbled circles around the negative space to create a messy frame, and then stamped the sentiment from Avery Elle's Look Up in black ink. Then I embossed the stars from the set in white, and added a little black distress stain sprays (being sure to cover up the white circle panel)! To finish up the card, I tied some black and white twine around the card front.


That's all from me today, thanks so much for popping in! Hope you have a lovely Thursday!
Amber
