Card, Neat and Tangled

Video: Neat and Tangled_ Distress Ink Watercolor Card

by May Park-

Hi, crafty friends! Today I have an easy watercolor card that I made using the Giving Tree stamp set from Neat and Tangled. My inspiration came from my own card that I made last June. Here is what I came up with:

I started by stamping the images from Giving Tree with a waterproof ink: Hero Arts Hero Hues black ink. Then I watercolored them with Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Cracked Pistachio, Iced Spruce, and Tea Dye.

After that, I stamped the little heart from the Jump Start My Heart stamp set with watermark ink. Next, I heat embossed the hearts with gold embossing powder.

I stamped the sentiment from the Heat of Gold stamp set with watermark ink on a piece of black cardstock. Then I heat embossed it with white embossing powder and mounted the sentiment banner to the card front with foam tape.

I made a quick video tutorial showing you how I create my card. You can watch the tutorial here or in HD on my Youtube channel. If you like this video, please give it a thumbs up and subscribe Mayholic in Crafts to see more videos from me.

I created another card with same design but using different watercolor medium: Nicholson’s Peerless Watercolors. Which card do you like?
