Happy Easter card + technique


I love a good technique – this is no exception! You see I watercolored this background originally on a piece of paper that had been stenciled with paste. Then I discovered I could “stamp” it onto cardstock with the help from some Distress Spray (Picket Fence) and make prints. Oh, Oh so HAPPY! I adore how this card turned out too!

THis card is fabulous and is different from most watercolor creations I see. it is unique and lovely and I love how it turned out. Thanks for the inspiration, as usual.

  2. I saw the video yesterday when I was checking your you tube. Love how you turned it into a pretty Easter card. The watercolor background came out so lovely. Definitely trying this. Thanks. Michelle t

  3. The best ideas come from playing around and yours is fantastic. Beautiful soft and pretty card!

  4. OH – what a happy accident 🙂 !

    I can see the possibilities of fiddling around with different ways of achieving a similar effect – like maybe wetting the 2nd paper or spritzing the original w/ a pearly/sparkly mist… definitely have this tucked away for future exploration

  5. So much fun!! It looks like you had a great time with this technique.. love the sparkly “happy” 🙂
