Thanks Dear! (primary colors watercoloring)


Happy Tuesday! Kristina here. :)

Today's card started with the Oh Dear Silhouette stamp set from Pink Persimmon. I wanted to create a sort of label shape for the deer and sentiment, so I cut out an oval with a Silhouette cutting machine. But as you'll see in the video, I ended up adapting it a bit. :)

I used only three Distress Ink colors for the watercoloring. I specifically chose red, yellow, and blue—the primary colors—so that I could create the other colors of the rainbow. Watercoloring over an embossed image is so fun because the embossing areas resist the color!
