3 cards with lots of stripes and watercoloring

Hello crafty friends!

Ever since the pretty pink posh watercolor blog hop (you can see my post here: water color blog hop), I have been loving water coloring on my cards.  Even though water coloring isn’t my strong suit, it has been fun to experiment with different techniques and different water color mediums, like the Zig real brush pens and Distress inks.  I have also always loved stripes, so I ordered the Simon Says Stamp wide stripe background stamp as soon as it was back in stock.  A lot of my cards lately have stripes, watercoloring, and clear sequins.

Today, I am sharing 3 recent cards that I made.  I will list the products I used at the end of the post.  Also, I ordered a custom “handmade by” stamp from etsy (shop name is Stamp Couture), and I love it!  It’s so nice to just stamp the back of my cards.

I wish you could see these cards in real life.  The colors are so vibrant, and I added some sparkle with my wink of stella glitter pen.  All the ballons are covered with the glitter pen and glossy accents.

Here are the close ups:

Card #1:  “you’re fintastic!” featuring Lawn Fawn Fintastic Friends stamp set.
