Watercolor Greetings by Shantaie


Hello! Have you ever wondered just how much fun it is to watercolor? Not only is it fun, the results are so pretty, and the best part?.....imperfection is applauded! win win my friends!  Nothing can be better than the feeling of being good at something on your very first try! A few simple swipes with gelatos on watercolor paper and a wet brush reveal a soft color transition just begging to be a card base!


I did my messy swiping in no a horizontal direction from top to bottom, after the water dried, I splashed a few spritzes of glimmer mist and added a gold butterfly die cut. For a greeting a SRM fancy sentiments stickers and a tiny section from little borders. The card is wrapped with a shimmer twine bow, because you can never have too much shimmer..... It's my alltime favorite twine!!!


The objective here was to make really fast and simple cards, that don't look fast! I think I can call this  "mission accomplished" :)


I do know this to be true, real cards from real people make a big differance in a persons day, they don't have to be pricey, or take hours to make, to make a big impact on someones day! :)
