Happy Saturday everyone!
Apologies for this post as there's no video. I filmed a video for this card, went to edit the footage and it was all out of focus. Rookie mistake I know and it's so frustrating - especially as I was using the new-to-me Sakura Koi Water Colors for the first time and wanted to show that in the video.
But since I have a rather full plate I can't go back and re-film it all so I thought I'd just suck it up and post the card here and will make doubly sure next time that my camera is IN focus :P!
Other than the baker's twine and the watercolour paper/black ink/watercolors everything else I used on this card is from the SSS May Card kit. I am still loving this kit and had to pull it out again to make this card!
I masked off one of the clouds before stamping the sun, and stamped all the images onto a strip of Strathmore Ready Cut Watercolor paper. I then used the Sakura Koi Water Colors and my Silver Size 6 brush to watercolour them all in. I purposely kept it messy/imperfect - trying not to be so OCD with my colouring LOL! Sometimes I succeed sometimes not so much *wink*.
I stamped one of the cloud images separately as well as the sentiment bubble then trimmed them out with scissors and popped them onto the main panel with a bit of foam tape. I lined said panel with some of the Sunshine card stock included in the kit, then added a bit of Doodlebug twine to the left side and added a bow. I popped that onto the patterned paper (also in the kit) with foam tape and adhered it to my card.
The sequins are from the kit as well and I adhered them with Ranger's Multi Medium Matte adhesive.
I didn't take a pic of the inside of the card b/c I showed it in the video :P but I just used the leftover strip of patterned paper I had from making the card front and adhered it to the inside so that it wasn't completely bare!
