Today I'm sharing the card I made for my daughter's 4th birthday. My daughter is having a Trolls party next weekend so I bought some images on Etsy and had fun playing with lots of techniques - watercoloring, stamping, heat embossing and more! I am playing along with this week's Muse challenge #229...I was inspired by Tracey's blue watercolor background and the black background for the sentiment.
Here is the card, and be sure to check out the process video below.
I am still pretty new to watercoloring but have been addicted to it lately! I love playing with various effects and backgrounds for my handmade cards.
My daughter has shown a lot of interest in crafting lately and started making cards and scrapbook pages with me, so this is the first year I wanted to really take the time to make her card special. She saves her cards so I know she will want this displayed on her bookshelf!
Here is my process video. Enjoy, and please let me know what you think!
Thanks for watching and visiting my blog today! Go check out the Muse challenge and play along. There's a new challenge every Monday morning.
