Saturdays with Sally: Rainbows of Color Splashes
I LOVE playing with watercolors! I am packing up my suitcase once again and making sure my small watercolor kit and brushes are going in!! And lots of watercolor paper.
For today’s cards I used Liquid Watercolors. For the first card, take a flat brush and make rainbow stripes with colors of your choice on watercolor paper. Let thoroughly dry. Stamp CREATE from Art Journal Messages in Intens-ified Black Ink directly on the dry stripes. On a scrap of Mustard cardstock stamp JOY. Trim and mount with foam tape. Mount the panel onto Pitch Black cardstock.
For the next card, simply slosh some Liquid Watercolors onto a teflon mat or waxed paper. Blot it with watercolor paper. VOILA, memories of blotto paintings from your childhood. (You could also achieve a similar look using the March 2022 My Monthly Hero kit and some ink pads!) Add color with a brush where you might still have white space. Die cut "happy" from Happy Thanks Stamp & Cut XL with Paradise cardstock several times, and stack and glue them together for dimension. Tie with some fancy colorful threads and glue onto card. Mount onto Bermuda cardstock.
