My samples were made using Hero Arts Three Ferns stamp and a clear set of large sentiments, also from Hero Arts. The cards are Strathmore Watercolor cards that have languished in my
The orange card is so cheerful, and the green card is so serene. Amazing how a change of color affects the mood of a card so dramatically!
I experimented with lots of color combinations.
How-To Tips: I colored the Three Ferns stamp with watercolor crayon using two shades (one light, one dark) of the same color. After laying a bunch of color onto the rubber, I spritzed the stamp with water and let it sit for about thirty seconds while the pigments dissolved. Then I stamped, spritzed, and stamped again on a second card. Often, you can push stamps prepared this way for a third impression, but I liked the more intense colors.
Rules for OLW12
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of cardstock folded in half.
2. Use watercolor in some way to make the card. Embellishments must be kept to a minimum.
3. Remember to share your creations by posting your card online and then using the InLinkz button in the sidebar of Simplicity to link to it.
4. Most important of all...HAVE FUN!
