watercoloring in a world of sweet

Hello friends!

It’s Samantha here today, and I’m sharing some really FUN and easy to make, watercolor cards! I was scoping out the Sweet Stamp Shop Pinterest boards, and I came across this BEAUTY!

Oh yes, it’s gorgeous, isn’t it? I just LOVE the messy watercoloring, and the background that Lindsay Amrhein created! And don’t you just LOVE that stamp set she used? It’s the Sparkle and Shine stamp set!

Well, somehow, I don’t have that stamp set! What?! I know! But that’s OK! I can still create really great cards using the same techinique!

Both of my cards use the Press It, Wash It stamp set! A total MUST have, for anyone who hates housework, like I do! lol! πŸ™‚

My first card is my favorite! I used the cute as can be dust bunny and made my own background in staz-on ink! Then, I very loosely watercolored some browns around each bunny! They remind me of pigpen from the Peanuts series! lol!

I just added a bit of washi put on a diaganol on the tops and bottom of the card, and a few enamel dots to finish the card! Then I added the sentiment with a vellum banner! so FUN! πŸ™‚

My second card uses the same messy, watercolor look, but is totally different! Here’s a sneak peek:
