Two stunning cards by Designer Joy Ott

So happy to be joining you on the Hampton Art blog today. I made two cards with the Jillibean Soup / Hampton Art Tiny Stories clear stamp set. 

I really like the fun sentiments in this set and that they are large enough to be the focal point of a card. Today I paired them with the trendy watercolor technique. 

Favorite Thing card by Joy Ott


Dreams card by Joy Ott


Here’s how to create a similar look on your projects:

1) Stamp the sentiment on watercolor paper with clear ink.
2) Sprinkle with embossing powder.
3) Heat with a heat gun and let set a few minutes to cool. 
4) Scribble the paper with your favorite distress markers.
5) Spritz the paper heavily with water and let it dry. 
6) Clean the sentiment quickly with a baby wipe to remove some of the marker.
