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)
