Blessed By God- A Fun Watercolor Sketch

Hi Again Friends!

I wanted to share a card that I created last night using the SR303 ColorChallenge along with the Paper Craft Crew PCCCS170 Sketch Challenge and the Just Us Girls JUGS319 Watercolor Challenge.

If you have not already done so, I hope you will have the visit all of the above challenge sites to check out the inspiration from their fabulous Design Teams as well as their gallery entries!

To create this card:

Using Stāz-On® Jet Black, stamp the bird image and branch from An Open Heart onto Whisper White cardstock.

Color the images using Stampin’ Write Markers- Tip Top Taupe, Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey.

Fussy-cut the bird image and add additional details with the Stampin’ Write Basic Black marker, set aside.

Spritz the branch image with water and create a horizon line with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker.

Add a bit of splatter using Tip Top Taupe Classic Ink and the splatter stamps from Gorgeous Grunge.

Trim the branch image and use the Banner Triple Punch to punch out the banner and mount onto a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock (also punching the banner with the punch).
Add a layered banner created with the Banner Triple Punch from Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon cardstock.

Add the Hello Honey banner behind the large stem banner.

Use Sponge Daubers to apply Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon Classic Ink onto the Watercolor Wash background stamp, spritz with water and lightly blot with a paper towel.

Place a piece of Whisper White cardstock over the background stamp, press into the ink and lift up.

Add the large splatters with Lost Lagoon and Tip Top Taupe Classic Ink.

Stamp the sentiment from Blessed by God using Tip Top Taupe Classic Ink.

Trim the panel, mount onto Lost Lagoon cardstock and mount onto the Hello Honey card base.

Add the Gold Cord Trim and mount the banner over the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add the fussy cut bird to finish off the card.
