Hey stampin’ friends!
I hope you are doing well! I’ve been busy, busy but I knew that I should probably get my father’s day cards done or I wouldn’t be able to with the busy schedule I’ve got right now.
Today’s cards are similar, following the sketch inspiration and stamp set found on page 44 of the 2019 Occasions Stampin’ Up! catty.
I’m also entering one of the cards for a color challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers. Here’s the color combo they gave us:
Here’s the card that I came up with:
Here’s the other card:
On both cards I used a simple watercoloring wash, sloppy water coloring and splatter techniques. When the images were still damp I molded the shapes with my bone folder and they are really sturdy using the watercolor paper and it gave them so much dimension too!
Here’s a view of both cards side by side:
Using different colors, but the same stamp set can give similar….. yet different looks! so fun how that happens! Don’t you just love this hobby?
Here’s some close ups, hopefully the dimension picks up:
I hope they can still be mailed easily cause they are so stiff, lol!
Here’s another view:
Well, that’s all for today. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a blessed day ❤
