Hello! One of my good friends is expecting a baby boy in the summer so I wanted to create a card for an upcoming baby shower for her. (And, an excuse to use blue colors is always welcome!)
There is one thing I always share with my fellow crafters whenever I create a card using watercolors – if you are new to watercoloring and not yet ready to invest in other watercolor mediums, use other supplies you are likely to already have on hand – like those Distress inks!
I really wanted the “baby” word to pop out, so I decided to create the card with blue and white color combo. So for the background, I created a light to medium watercolor wash for the background and cut the “baby” word with a white cardstock using the In A Word: Baby Cutaway. Don’t you love how it is popped out from the background? Airy yet bold and clean!
To accompany the main word “baby,” I added “welcome” and “boy” from The Big, The Bold, and Baby Stamp Set using a black inkpad.
Want to use this for another occasion? Simply change the color of the background or the focal point sentiments, and you have a completely different card! Take out your inks and have fun with them!
