Waving Thank You

I grabbed some painter's tape and a few watercolors to make this card. What do you think? 

   Itty Bitty Banners

   Peekaboo Peach A-2
   Basic Black 5 x 3-3/4
   Watercolor 4-3/4 x 3-1/2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Archival Basic Black

   Cucumber Crush
   Pacific Point
   Peekaboo Peach
   Real Red
   Sweet Sugarplum

   Die Cut Masking

   Bitty Banner Framelits Dies
   Painter's Tape
   Aqua Painter

The tutorial that I followed is found at SCS: Die Cut Masking

Basically, you die cut shapes out of painter's tape. Apply them to a panel of watercolor paper. Add watercolors to create your background. Let it dry completely. Remove the masks and finish your cards. As you can see, some of my watercolors seeped under the masks. Oops!

  1. That background is interesting. I might just give that a try once I get past experimenting with fun fold cards. I'm having a ball doing that. There are plenty of SU! demonstrators who make videos and share ways to make these fun cards. A few names come to mind: Leeann Greff, I think her name is, and Julie Davison. Julie is such a fun person. She has a contagious giggle that makes card-making really fun. I'm enjoying playing in the wee hours of the night when I can't sleep.

    1. Thank you for sharing, Fonda. I may have to pop over and check them out when I get a chance. I am always wanting to try something new. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Enjoy your card making with all of the folds.

  2. Great selection of water colors. They really turned out nice and bright on your card stock. I love all the banners too. Nicely displayed.

    1. You are so sweet. Thank you so much, Lisa. I do like bold. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.
