Lea's Notes: Watercolor is how I colored the cute gumball machine from the Goody Goody Gumballs stamp set for my card today! I stamped it in onyx black Versafine ink and let it set for a couple minutes. Then I just added watercolor to it in reds & greys. I die-cut the gumball machine, then covered the peekaboo hole with some acetate.
Lea's Notes: After layering papers to the top of an A2 card trimmed from Cherry Pop cardstock, I poured a small group of sequins to the middle of the top layer. After adding foam dots and strips to the back of the die-cut gumball machine, I adhered it over the top of the sequins. I made sure the adhesive was fully stuck to the paper, and then shook the sequins loose so they would look like gumballs in the machine!
Lea's Notes: I cut two banner strips from patterned paper, and stamped the sentiment to the neutral one. I then layered them to the bottom of the card, popping the sentiment strip with foam adhesive. I embellished the card with some additional sequins to finish it!
Lea's Notes: I hope you will try your hand at watercolor! Just be sure to use a brush that has a small and thin amount of bristles to it. And don't worry if it doesn't look perfect, or if some paint seeps over the stamped lines...creating homemade cards is all about embracing imperfections. I hope that you enjoyed my fun and colorful card today!
