I have painted images with watercolor pencils and love it. But I recently bought some regular watercolor paints to use them more for backgrounds and more flexible techniques. I recently made a card with a multicolor background using these paintings. You can see it here:
But I had this in mind to paint a blue watercolor background for the world. Love this Stamp and had it in mind. So I painted the background in blue watercolor and then stamped the image with distress ink.
I also wanted to use a powerful sentiment and reinforce it with other elements.
So I decided to tie the world image to a kraft card stock using eyelets and a cord. And added red elements to show the "united by love" feeling.
The base of the card was also watercolored in the edges for a combined soft look all over.
I already shared this card in the current Unity Stamp Show and Tell challenge at Facebook. Maybe you saw it first over there but I hadn't had the chance to share here.
And of course will also share at Take It Make It Challenge going on at Craft Stamper Magazine blog. It's about to end and this month I entered several times so this means I could take some time for he hobby.
