Best day ever blogpost for Crafty Meraki

Hi everyone!

Today I shared a couple of fun birthday cards on Crafty Meraki blog.
I used My Favorite Things ‘Best friends in the universe‘ stamp set and watercoloured the images. I created a collage style card and a cute scene on another. I had done the collage style card in the past once and enjoyed making it. So I wanted to do it again.
Here is the card

I started by dividing the watercolor cardstock panel into four parts. I used a pencil to draw the guidelines.
I stamped the images with Antique Linen Distress Ink and coloured the images using Daniel Smith Watercolors.
I masked the borders and filled in the background with a light watetcolour wash. I was disappointed that the masking tape didn’t hold the watercolors properly. Else I was pretty happy with how the card turned out.

Here is my second card

I masked the edges with a masking tape and stamped the images using Antique Linen Distress Ink. This time, I coloured images with Karin Markers…all except the cute astronaut’s face.

Once I finished colouring, I painted a background wash using my Daniel Smith watercolors. After the panel was dry, I masked the images and generously splattered white ink. I let it air dry and adhered it on a grey card base.

Here are the two cards together.

I hope you like the cards. Take care.
