Happy Labor Day to Americans today! Thought I'd play along with the Happy Little Stamper Watercolor Challenge today and I'm submitting a card I made for our Aunt Jo's 92nd birthday. This was a lot of fun to make and super easy. First I did a quick sketch in pencil of the triangle 'chain' and basket , and then used a waterproof black pen to actually do the little picture. I didn't draw in the green/yellow leaves. Next I took a mix of lemon yellow and indigo to mix green and used different mixes along the way to dot in the leaves. I painted the planter with plain indigo blue. Then I stamped the birthday sentiment. I trimmed the watercolor panel down to 4 x 5-1/2". Lastly I used a border embosser for the two side elements and adhered it to a kraft cardbase. Thank you for reading this and the materials used are listed below.
