Storybook Bunny and Bear

Hello there! Amy (The Craft Bunny) here! I have a sweet watercolor card for you today. I used WPlus9's Fresh Cut Containers and Happy Mail to build the scene here. The Fresh Cut Containers stamp set is surprisingly easy to use! Below are the details and some tips.

  1. On watercolor paper, stamp the pot and flowers using various colors of distress inks. Then, soften the image with a water brush. To deepen the shadow, simply go in directly with more of your distress ink. Dawn has shown a perfect example of this technique on WPlus9's YouTube channel. You can watch the video here
  2. Stamp the bear, bunny and tree trunk using Memento LUXE Rich Cocoa ink, heat set it, then color with distress inks. I could have done no-line watercoloring for them but I like my animals to have a solid outline
  3. Die cut the panel with Die-namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX
  4. Stamp the sentiment using the rich cocoa ink and die cut with MFT Tag Builder Blueprints 5. Mount with foam tape
Hope you like my card today. Have a wonderful day!
