CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Wacky for Watercolor

Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  This month we will feature “Wacky for Watercolor”.  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Melissa Robinson.

Fall Watercolor Card by Wendy Kessler

Fall Watercolor Card by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Picture My Life Watercolor Cards – Clear, Watercolor Paints, Paintbrush Set, Rustic Home Ribbon Pack, and Cardstock (Poppy, Chocolate).

Watercolor can be a great way to create a beautiful yet simple card.  I used the Picture My Life Watercolor Cards to do just that.  I used a wide brush to apply paint back and forth over the card.  On the red one I wet my brush with color and added to the card.  For the green card I wet the enter PML card with water first, then applied color.  As it was drying I added more paint for a darker color.  Once the painting was finished, I dabbed the embossed image with a tissue to remove any paint sitting on the image.  You could also wait until it was dry and use a wet tissue for the same result.  To create the spots on the green card, I applied paint to my brush and then tapped it on my finger, allowing it to splatter into the card.

Now hop on over to Haley Dyer!

Zip Strip Card

A Zip Strip is the top strip of the B&T Duos (patterned paper) that you cut off the 12×12 sheet.  It has the paper name and information on the backside.  Don’t let these go to waste!  See here how I created this fun card with a set of strips from the Calypso Paper Packet.  Because they all coordinate, it’s easy to do this with any paper packet but you can also mix and match.  Any excess on the edge can be trimmed off for a neat look.  You could also add in a strip of Shimmer Trim for some added sparkle like I did on the second card.  I often make cards in sets when using up scraps, if possible.
