I created a watercolor birthday card using the Floral Frame stamp set from Altenew included in the Masterpiece BoxIf you want to buy this stamp set separately, you need to wait until Altenew releases the stamp set in October.

The fact that so many companies were willing to release their product alongside other manufacturers shows the strength and cooperation in our industry. Aaron from Hero Arts has been known to say “The rising tide lifts all boats” and I totally see his point.

The Masterpiece box features 15 products from 10 different manufacturers and is about about bringing something super special and exciting to market. The Masterpiece Box features new releases from many of the industries finest brands!” – Heidi Crowl, founder of Simon Says Stamp

Celebrate, Smile, I Love YouGarden

These are a few watercolor cards that I created for the last few months. When I don’t have any ideas for my card design, I tend to go through my old cards and take some layout and colors from them. That’s exactly what I did for today’s card. 

Watercolor Handmade Birthday Card

I went kind of messy for my card today. I’m still not sure if I should have left my background clean without ink splatters. What do you think?

It took me about 40 minutes to color entire images. I watercolored my images with patience and repeated the process of adding colors over and over to give them depth and interest.

● How to Make a Watercolor Card using Masking Technique ●

    Color is my thing as well, the brighter the better. Your work is amazing. I will probably say this at every blog stop but I am so grateful that folks like you are so giving in sharing how you do your work. I am a complete beginner to stamping and mixed media, but have learned so much all ready.

    I love flowers and I always have. The colors of flowers are so beautiful just like yours. I see you used yellow, which is a plus in my book because it’s my favorite color. I used to do splatter painting in high school but I never did it with a stamp, I always did it with a whole painting, not just part of it. I like how it looks though and I’ll have to try it again. I like the splatters. They add that extra something. Your cards are Hallmark ready. Actually, they are better then Hallmark! Love all of them!

    Beautiful card May…and yes, my desk is also super duper messy…I can’t seem to get a hold on it…I try to keep it clean, but it don’t happen…seems like that’s just my style I guess…and that’s how I find my inspiration, from the STUFF on my desk! Thanks for making me feel like I’m just not a sloppy crafter! Love your style by the way!
