Graduation Card Tutorial by Shelly

Using watercolor paper and watercolor pencils, Shelly Kurth has created a beautiful graduation card.  First she used pencils, paint brushes and smooch spritz, and then Shelly added SRM's Take 2 Graduation Stickers and a touch of solid black twine.

Here are the steps Shelly used to create this card: 

1.  Take watercolor paper and using the watercolor pencil, rub on card (back and forth motion and lighter/darker in some areas). 

2.  After, take paint brush and wet. Brush over the watercolor pencil, until you get the look you want. Let dry. 

3.  Then take the smooch spritz and spray on card (to get the dots/splatters, do not push the pump all the way down. Before you use it on the card, you may want to use a tissue/scrap piece of paper first to see how it will come out.) Once you've sprayed the spritz on the card, let sit for a minute. 

4.  Then take your finger and slightly smear it in one direction. Let dry. 

5.  Take circle die, black cardstock, and run through your machine. Once you have your circle, adhere sticker to it.  

6.  Add foam squares on back and adhere to card. 

7.  Take twine and loop it around the one side of the sticker and add sequins.
