Guest Designer Sunday with Jana Millen
Happy Mother’s Day! To honor all of the mothers out there I have created a watercolor card. Have you tried creating a watercolor background? It is easy to do. I started by creating an oval piece of masking paper to put in the center of the card. (you can use anything that can be adhered but won’t hurt the paper when removed) This is where the greeting will go so you want to be sure that you leave ample space for it. I stamped the images repeatedly using pigment ink and then clear heat embossed them. I find that heat embossing the image helps you to stay in the lines better with the watercolor.
