It’s Wednesday again already! And that means we have another sketch for you over at Freshly Made Sketches, with the incredibly talented Jen Mitchell as our hostess. Look at what she has for us this week:
I decided to make a birthday card, and I’ve been wanting to use a faux watercoloring technique again that I tried a few weeks ago (you can see that post here), so I combined the two.
I started by embossing the sentiment from Countless Sayings 2 (one of the photopolymer sets) with clear embossing powder on Very Vanilla card stock. I used a sponge dauber and dragged some Bermuda Bay ink across the bottom, some Coastal Cabana ink on the middle, and some Pool Party ink on the top, blending a little each time. With a small wet paintbrush, I lightly touched the card stock, depositing little drops of water on it. Easy peasy!
We’d love to see what you do with the sketch! Head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site for some inspiration from the design team, and then post your own creation in the gallery.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

Great card Amy! Love the technique on the sentiment!
I love all your beautiful cards.
Beautiful, Amy! I need to try this technique! My club girls are traumatized each time I try to do anything with a paintbrush, but perhaps they can handle a sponge, LOL!
Love the embossing and splashing! Wonderful effect!
Love your card, Amy ! It really does make me HAPPY – love the colors and the texture you have brought together.
Wonderful card, Amy! You have such a great style.
Stunning card,Amy!! Such a happy card! Great colors and i love the balloon paper!!!
The “watercolor” background is a fabulous way to show off the embossed sentiment! I love the texture on the embossed layer and those fun balloons!
I love the look of the white-embossed sentiment against the watercolored background. All-round fabulous card!
I love the background on the embossed layer. Such a great look!! Fun card!
It’s beautiful, Amy! I’m betting not easy peasy for me, but I love the look and would never have guessed it wasn’t really watercolored!
This card says happy for sure! Great paper along with the embossed background! 🙂
Oh my gosh! I love all the wonderful details of this fabulous card, but especially like how you did the water drops on the sponged piece. It’s awesome!
Oh Amy! This card is so fun! I love that embossed background and the DSP! Love what you’ve done with the sentiment panel! Super fabulous!
