Congrats Watercolour Card

Hi, Connie Nichol here today with a card featuring the new 'Congrats' die from Elizabeth Craft Designs and designed by Suzanne Cannon of Quietfire Design.



These word dies cut so beautifully and you can put them on a huge variety of backgrounds to get all sorts of different looking cards.  For this one, I used a rectangle of watercolour paper from Elizabeth Crafts designs, moistened it with a bit of water and then brushed it with watercolours.




Just make sure your paper is a little wet so the colour can spread.  You can either just brush it with water with a paint brush or use a little spritzer to mist water on the paper.  After the paper dried, I added a few stars punched from a Shimmer Sheet and a handful of glitter dot stickers.  Simple, but pretty and artistic looking without taking a lot of time or artistic skill.  Try different colours for a different look.

Supplies:  Elizabeth Crafts Design Way with Words die, watercolour paper, Shimmer Sheetz, and glitter dots, Close to my Heart watercolour paints, Brother sewing machine and Fancy Pants corrugated paper.

 
Glitter Dots available in Assorted Colors
Shimmer Sheetz come in a variety of colours too!
