I recently got this cute mini set from Lawn Fawn: Octupi My Heart. I created a love card with it.
I started with the background, because I wanted to watercolor it and it needs to dry properly. I took four Distress Inks and smooshed them onto my craft mat. I used Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio and Wilted Violet. I die cut a piece of watercolor paper with one of the dies from the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX, by My Favorite Things. I added some water to the paper and then applied the colors one by one onto the paper. When the panel dried, I added some water droplets and dabbed them off with a paper towel. I set the panel aside to let it dry.
I stamped the octopus and the heart onto white cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Octopus: V01 – V12
Heart: R35 – R29
I die cut the images with my Cuttlebug. I stamped the sentiment onto the watercolor panel and then added the octopus and heart onto it with foam tape.
I took a piece of pattern paper from the Beachside paper pad from Lawn Fawn. I adhered my panel to it with foam tape. The entire panel was adhered onto a purple cardbase.
This is such a fun and easy card to make. The watercolor look, makes it look like an art piece, even though it didn’t really take long to make.
