Happy Watercolored Birthday — FMS137

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.

Happy Watercolored BirthdayI 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!

Happy Watercolored Birthday close upWe’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!

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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!
