Watercolor on cards.

Today I’m sharing a little set of cards that I made using Everyday Shapes stencils from Hazel & Ruby along with some watercolors.

I started by cutting 3″x5″ panels that would be card fronts for 4″x4″ cards, and then I placed a stencil right in the center of each.

And then I just painted.  I’ve recently started playing with watercolors and I really only know one thing and that’s to swoosh the paint, and then another color, and another.  Someday I hope to graduate up to more technique, but for now I’m enjoying just playing with watercolors.

Allow your paint to dry completely.

And then remove your stencils.

I added a little sentiment at the bottom of each card; and now my little set is ready to go.

    Hey girl! Thank you SOOO much for the sweet & beautiful valentine gift & treats! You are too sweet! It made my day (oh, my son’s too, lol).

    Sorry for not keeping up with the blogging. Too busy at work and stress – not much desire to craft as much. I still make cards when I need them, but am not doing much creative stuff. And I keep getting kicked off the computer now – my son’s into gaming stuff and youtube – ack. Are your kids into the computer scene yet?

    And ooh…water coloring ay?! Beautiful and I loved scrolling through all of your latest creations and goodies. I missed seeing your awesome packaging and creations. Hope you, hubby and the littles are doing great! Miss ya girl!
