Nuts for you!

Hey! I’m back with another card.

Little Tangles challenge is one of my favorite challenges as it is a monthly challenge and I get a lot of time to plan and play. This time the theme is ‘watercolor‘.

This is my take on the challenge…
First, on a piece of watercolor cardstock, I stamped the mini backdrop stamp called ‘Sunburst’ from Neat and Tangled with ‘Fossilized Amber’ Distress Ink. Distress Inks don’t give crisp impression but react amazingly with water. So after stamping, I took a very wet brush and went over the whole image. It smudged a lot but that was exactly the look I had wanted. 
Then, on another piece of watercolor paper, I stamped the super cute image from ‘My favorite nut’ from Neat and Tangled and watercolored with some cheap watercolor cakes in my stash. I fussy cut the image after it was dry and adhered everything own. I had also trimmed down the sunburst panel right upto the edge.
Here is the close up…

I hope you like the card… thanks for stopping by!

Hugs…

  2. I really must get my hands on that Sunburst stamp, it looks amazing behind your sweet little squirrels. You've painted them so perfectly too and I love that you left everything else white on your card. Its gorgeous and I'm so happy to see you at Little Tangles!
