Watercolored Circles with Love Sparkles

About a week ago I shared a card with you all that featured watercolored circles and the lovely Chase Your Dreams stamp set. Well, I got a request for a video showing how I created that card. I decided to get that done, but to create a fresh design 😊

Since it is Retiring Product time, I thought I would use another wonderful set (that has not seen much ink in my craft room, sadly) that will be going into retirement soon. 😞

I really enjoyed making this card. I love the bright, vibrant colors, and the pop of the black sentiments. Lemon Lime Twist is sure to be a favorite new In Color for most people. It has such an amazing ability to coordinate with most other colors! I used it here with Crushed Curry and Emerald Envy. Both colors that I have been lovin' on a lot lately 😍

Here is how I made this card:
  • Tape 4"x5½" watercolor panel to a board. 
  • Trace circles lightly in pencil. I used an embossing powder container.
  • Add reinker to the open lids of Crushed Curry, Lemon Lime Twist, and Emerald Envy. Use Aqua-painter or a watercolor brush to fill in the circles. Dry with heat tool. 
  • Erase the pencil lines with a quality eraser.
  • Spatter with clean water, dab off, dry with heat tool.
  • Stamp some stars in matching colors on the circles. Stamp the sentiments in Archival Black. 
  • Stitch around the panel.
  • Add some Clear Wink of Stella to a few of the circles.
  • Adhere to a Thick Whisper White card base. 
  • Stamp more stars inside with Lemon Lime Twist and Crushed Curry. All done!

 Look guys, a video!!

The stamping inside...

Do you see the Clear Wink? It is awesome in real life!

OK, just this one more shot. Can't waste a good photo! 

Do you love the color that layering Lemon Lime Twist and Emerald Envy created? I sure do! Definitely going to use these two together in the future.
