CASology #109: Floral Watercolor Greeting Card

by May Park-

Hello everyone! Hope you had a wonderful start to a new week. Last weekend I had so much fun with six ladies at the craft retreat. I was very productive during the crafty trip. I created a few vintage tags including Tim Holtz’s seahorse tag, painted on canvases using acrylic paint, made a few fabric hangers, and of course created cards! If you want to see some of the photos from my first craft trip, check out my Instagram or Facebook.

I created a floral themed card inspired by my friend who grows her flowers in small coffee cups. For my card, I used Loved Stamp Set from Waffle Flower Crafts and Latte Love Stamp Set from Fiskars. I first stamped the images using light ink on a watercolor paper and colored them with watercolor paint. (Sorry! I don’t have step photos for today since I made this during the trip.)

This is a closer look at my card. Honestly I did’t like the way it turned out when I finished my card. But you know what? The more I look, the more I love! I don’t want to brag, but my watercolor card looks fabulous in every way! What do you think? Hope you like my creation too.

For some reason, I wasn’t confident with watercoloring before. But this card made me want to try more watercolors. And I also found out watercolor worked on CAS card, too. Hopefully you’ll see more watercolor cards from me. Ha-ha!
