DIY Monday-Journal Cards #2

Hello!  After a much needed vacation last week I am back!  The beach was beautiful, but I can’t lie my craft room was calling to me.  I had so much fun last week making some new journal cards that I decided to make more.  This week I wanted to do some watercoloring and play with some embossing paste.  I never thought of my self as much of an artist, but now there are so many great products that can make me feel just that!

Here is a look at the finished cards.


I started out with Tim Holtz watercolor paper and I used the lawn fawn die to cut it down to 3×4.  I wanted the first card to have an ombre look.  I used various shades of pool and turquoise across the card then stamped the sentiment with Simon Says Stamp black ink.



On the coordinating card I wanted to use the watercolors to create a moon.  Again, using the Tim Holtz water color paper I placed a half moon stencil over the card and used the same watercolors to fill in the moon.  After the moon was dry I wanted to add a dimensional cloud.  Using the same stencil I placed some white embossing paste over the cloud, then to add a little sparkle I sprinkled a little iridescent embossing powder over the paste.  I left this card to the side to dry and came back to this!


I fell in love!

Thanks for stopping by!

All the products I used are linked below.

Have a great day.
