Ok, I know I’ve been sharing a lot with Happy Watercolor and even the Watercolor Wonder Notecards, but I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with them and I want to share them since I know a lot of folks have ordered the stamp set and the notecards. I figure more idea for how to use your stuff is always better, right? : )
So in case you didn’t realize it with my past pictures, the cards come preprinted with different colors or patterns to get you started. And they are all on watercolor paper… which means you can have fun watercoloring and adding your own personal touch as well. So, here are two cards I made from the same base card, just with different stamping and embellishing.
I would like to add, that I was not excited AT ALL when I was given these sequins a while back. But turns out, they are a fun touch to add sometimes. Since they come on a strand, I’ve been using them by pulling off sequins or tucking the strand partially behind a stamped layer. But in this case, I think they actually are just right as a strand out in the open, all on their own!
And then I wanted to figure out some different ideas to try on the other card styles… so this is my modified version of the spotlight technique. Though, I think it almost looks like a bar across the colored background stamps… so maybe it is a “censored technique” because it looks like a censor bar.
And the last one for today I call my “Artsy Poppy”. I started mixing and matching the stamps in the set as an experiment. I actually kind of like it.
(PS – did you notice, this card base is the same as the card above?)
If you look close up, you can see that the center of the poppy needed something, so I took an extra sequin and glued it down with a glue dot. It still was missing something, so I added a little pearl and it suddenly was just right!
So see, lots of different ideas and ways to spruce up these cards. You have one more week to grab them – and 20 cards for $12.95 isn’t a bad deal at all! See all the watercolor wonder coordinating supplies here.
I have one more set of cards using these notecards that I’ll post tomorrow. So you will have LOTS of ideas to play with with your supplies.
