You Are … Love of My Life card by designer Patty Folchert

A current trend I can’t get enough of is the watercolor trend. I utilized watercolors for this card paired up with the very sweet long sentiment stamp, Love of my Life- brand new from Hampton Art.

You Are The… card by Patty Folchert

The papers are from the KI Memories Playlist collection and the teal matched up with the black really made the watercolor mat pop. To create the card I grabbed a simple watercolor paint set and made a wash of three colors running them together. I chose blue, green and purple to create a boy theme card but any colors would work. Then I set aside painted mat to dry completely. Next I stamped the sentiment in black ink on top of watercolor wash. Then I matted onto the teal paper and attached to the card front. All that was left was some fun party embellishments: Rock Candy Blue Fringe Garland & Star Cupcake Topper for the top and some new star sequins all from Jillibean Soup. 

That was it, super simple and a nice effect I think. Happy New Year to all of you, may your craft rooms be bright and busy!
