Versatile, Soft and Easy Watercolor Birthday
Versatile, soft and easy, this card is quick and lovely. It really is as simple as stamp, paint, let dry, and attach to a cardbase. Versatile because you can change the sentiment up as you need to; thinking of you, hello, congratulations or sympathy. Sometimes I leave the front of my cards without a sentiment and write my message on the inside.
Try not to get caught up with the thought that to create what you see in a video, you have to have what the artist is using. You don't. If all you have is your kids Crayola, rock it out! The point is to create, have fun, relax and play. If you want to get better, keep practicing. Monet practiced too.
Here is the link to my video tutorial on my YouTube channel if you want to see my process and my supply list is below.
