Lots of Stripes!
by Melissa Rusk

Happy Wednesday! Today I want to share how I made my card for this months challenge. It is all about stripes and I created a fun watercolor card for you today.


I started with my striped background. Using watercolor paper and a larger paint brush I painted the black stripes all the way down, leaving some space in between. If the color didn't come out as dark as I wanted then I just painted over it again. Super fun and super easy!

Then I started to paint the colors for my flower and leaves. I put down some water in the shape that I wanted the flower, it's a little bigger than the stamp. Then I took some pinks and reds and dropped them in the water until I liked the colors.

Once this dried I did the same thing for the leaves in green. After the paint dried then I stamped my flower and leaves with versa mark ink and used a black embossing powder to make them stand out.

To finish the card I stamped and embossed my sentiment and then added some black paint splatters with my wet brush as I tapped it over the paper. I added some bling with sequins and gems.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!
