Unity Stamp Company ~ Frankly Said ~ Watercolor Wash Birthday

Hello there! I'm dropping in with a super quick card... seriously, this is really quick! The most time-consuming part of this card was the dry time for the watercolor washed background.


I could have dried the background with my heat tool, but I decided to let it sit overnight so that I didn't re-heat the embossed sentiment from Unity's Frankly Said sentiment kit. So, to start I heat embossed the black sentiment onto the watercolor paper. Using painters tape, I taped down the watercolor panel to my board and wet the paper with a clean watercolor pen. I got the paper very wet... and funny note here... that's when the pizza delivery guy arrived with our dinner. LOL! So... after all that fun, I came back to my watercolor paper that was still a little wet and brushed more water on it. I scribbled my orange ZIG over my acrylic block and picked up the ink with my watercolor pen. I then brushed over the background. I went over it a couple of times to intensify the orange on the top, but I didn't want it too dark and I wanted to go with an ombre look... and the pizza was getting cold! LOL


The next day, I came back to my watercolored panel and I love how the background turned out. I die cut it with the Big and Little Chain Rectangle die by Gina Marie Designs. I die cut a piece of black card stock with the largest die in the set and then I adhered the black layer to a kraft card base. I popped up the watercolor panel using foam tape and that was it! I love the sassy sentiment on this card and I know the recipient will get a kick out of it!

Thank you friends for checking out my blog post!
See ya next time.

Inky Hugs!
