Happy World Card Making Day 2017

Hello and Happy World Card Making Day!!

I'll be crafting later today, first I have a few errands to run! I had a little downtime this week and did some crafting for just fun and did some watercoloring stamping!! I've been doing a lot of coloring with my SN markers and I was in the mood to play with my SN Aqua markers!!

I trimmed some Crafter's Companion's watercolor paper to fit a card base. Then I pulled out Sheena Douglass's Hummingbird stamp and a few Aqua Markers. I used Magenta, Sea Green, Aquamarine, Gold, Yellow, Scarlet, and Black.

I used the markers to color the hummingbird, using all the colors but black. I spritzed the stamp a couple of times with water and then stamped. There is plenty of ink on the stamp, so I just moved the hummingbird around and stamped again.

The watercolors blended together fabulously! I continued to do this until the panel was filled. With the fine tip end of the black marker, I added in the eyes! So nice to have that fine tip for the details!!

Next, I colored the sentiment with the black aqua marker and stamped it without water because I didn't want it to run too bad. It did just a touch and that's what I wanted! Water would have made it unreadable!

I added the stamped panel to a white card base and then added the sentiment strip with foam tape. Last I added a few black and grey sequins for a little sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
