This week I needed a housewarming card. I knew I wanted to replicate a design Kristina Werner put out last month called, “Welcome Watercolor Card.” I really intended to follow it exactly. I slightly strayed from the original by making a larger card (to accommodate a gift card), horizontal layout, and putting “congratulations” as the message. It was more appropriate for this recipient because they are first time home buyers. I used my Tim Holtz Distress Markers instead of watercolor pencils. Which only made me realize that I need (want) more colors. This is the Neighborhood stamp set from Claudine Hellmuth.
I made the ink bleed a little bit more than I intended, but it is a fun little card. I will have to work on my watercolor skills. Looking forward to using this stamp set more in the future!
