Books are Magical Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this one layer, watercolor, Books are Magical Card.

This Monday a new school year started in Croatia. I made this card for my niece Tea, 1st grade student. 

For a card base I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper and stamped directly on the card base. I used stamps from three super adorable Jane's Doodles stamp sets: 'Read All About It!', 'Magical' and 'Unicorn'. :o)


colored everything in a watercolor technique using Distress Inks (DI). First I colored a blue background, covered a girl with paper towel pieces and splattered the background with DI Blueprint Sketch and with water. Then I watercolored all images (Moon, stars, girl). I was inspired with colors from a photo below shared on Addicted to Stamps and More blog for the challenge #255 - Photo inspiration. This is my 3rd project made using this color scheme. I love it!!! You can find my previous projects here and here. :o)

After coloring, I left card air dry for couple hours. As a finishing touch, I highlighted images and sentiment and drew dots all over the card with a white gel pen. :o)

Card dimensions: 95 mm x 133 mm (3 3/4" x 5 1/4")

List of supplies:
