Clean & Simple Makes Me Smile

I love the look of a Clean and Simple card and add watercolouring to it too and it is guaranteed to make me smile. Today, I am sharing such a card on the Magenta blog.

I started with a piece of 140lb cold press watercolour paper and clear heat embossed using the Floral Pattern stencil. Next, I used a wet on wet watercolour technique to add colour. I pre-wet the area around the image emboss resist that I wanted to colour and then added Nuance powders (VioletSpring Green and Aquamarine) pre-wet as watercolours. While it was drying, I stamped and white heat embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment on black cardstock and cut it to size. Once the panel was dry, I die cut it and mounted it on a cardbase. I popped up the sentiment and added some jewels to the flower centres.


Magenta products used:

I hope my Clean & Simple Birthday Card made you smile today and that you are inspired to give it a try.
