Baby Boy Watercolor Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

On Wednesday, August 24th, was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Baby Boy Watercolor Card.

Last week my cousin was visiting me and this weekend my mom. I had such a wonderful time. I didn't think about computer and spending time on it at all, so my spotlight project post is a bit late. :o)

I made this CAS (clean and simple) card for my friend's baby boy Roko, who was born this month. I used an adorable stamp from Jane's Doodles 'Special Delivery' stamp set.

I stamped the image on a watercolor paper panel and colored it in watercolor technique with Distress Inks. I colored baby's face with colored pencils.

After drying I glued the panel on a white cardstock card base. Through the night the panel wrinkled. So satisfied with coloring but no clue how to flat wrinkles. It made me so sad. After a good cup of coffee I got it. IRON!!! :o)

I covered the card with 100% cotton cloth and ironed the card. Card flattened!!! Happiness overload!! :o)

Lion Birthday Card (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #78 Mid Inspiration)

Happy Friday everyone! :o)

Today I'm sharing a mid-inspiration project for an ongoing Aloha Friday Challenge at Kitty Bee Designs.

The challenge for this fortnight is #78 - Color Challenge. Use at least 2 colors from this color palette.
Summer, Pineapple Hues
Image source: Design Seeds

We have two sponsors for this challenge: Crafty Sentiments Designs and Scribbles Designs, so there will be double prizes! :o)

For this challenge I made this CAS (clean and simple), Lion Birthday Card, using Kitty Bee Designs ADORABLE image, Lychee the Lion.

How I made my card...

I printed the image on a white watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks and Stabilo Pens. When I was satisfied, I fussy cut the image, colored the edges with black marker and glued it over second image printed on cardstock paper. I do this to make images thicker, as I use thin watercolor paper which doesn't work well with 3-D foams. :o)

I fussy cut the image again, leaving white border around it.

I stamped sentiment on a top folded white card base, glued 3-D foams on the back of the lion and placed him on the card. Small enamel dot on a flower center and my card was finished. :o)

Dimensions: 101 mm x 133 m(4" x 5 1/4")
