For the hop I created a set of cards and a bonus card! Love the flexibility of this release and the happy, encouraging & fun stamps and dies that put a smile on your face.
Mini cards are always nice to have on hand to tuck in someones wallet, lunch, backpack, workout bag or purse etc. I had fun combining the stitched alphabet stamp set with “Encouraging Animals” … F.U.N. !
The rag technique was added to the bear. Glossy accents were added twice to the toucan’s beak. Adding a pop of color on the inside of the cards is something I always try to do.
Suzy’s watercolor cards are always packed in my travel bag and I am excited when new ones are released. Love these “Fruit Puns” OMG cute right! Orange you glad!! If you want to check more of Suzy’s adorable coloring cards click here. These images are super easy to watercolor because they are nice and large for easy blending. I pulled out my Zig markers to get these bold results.
The cards are one layer and I wanted some dimension so I cut the card horizontally. To finish off my card … Lucy’s sequin mixes do the trick. They are always my favorite because of the variety and colors. The final touch is adding some faux stitching with a white gel pen.
These cuts were made with my paper trimmer carefully watching the blade so I knew when to stop. The rest I cut with scissors.
Once the oranges are dry I colored with a medium & light blue zig coloring around the image … then I add water to blend out the color with my brush. Adding a bit of dark blue in the nooks & crannies makes the image pop even more. In this video I explain how I like to color a background with Zigs.
