Friends Forever

Today I am sharing two cards to celebrate World Watercolor Month. I am a firm believer that you don’t have to be great at it to enjoy it! There are many fun watercolouring techniques and I bet one of them will be for you!

Which one is for you?

Mixing our dye based inks with water is one of my favourite ways to colour and today I am sharing two cards (with a similar layout) using two of the most adorable stamps sets ever! This week’s Global Design Project Sketch Challenge (#gdp350) was a great start off point and I had so much fun with it!

The possibilities are endless with this sketch!

For my first card (and my entry for the challenge) I used the Hippest Hippos stamp set (FREE with a A$90.00 purchase during SALE-a-Bration) and the Hippo Dies (FREE with a A$90.00 purchase during SALE-a-Bration).

I always start with a light wash of watercolour, let it dry and then add darker shades. I try not to overthink where highlights and shadows should go.
So adorable!!

For my second card (actually the first one I made) I used the very cute Elephant Parade Bundle!

Cuteness overload!
My goodness the cutest little images (with coordinating dies) are included in this bundle!
Look at those For Everything Fancy Sequins shine!
SALE-a-Bration runs until the end of August 2022 – shop and earn your FREE products HERE!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope I have inspired you to try your hand at watercolouring, let me know how you go!

Happy stamping!
