Watercolored Daisies Birthday Card

terry 2014 watercolor birthday

Watercoloring is BIG right now in card crafting blog/challenge land! I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire and Dawn McVey for Papertrey Ink.

I embossed the daisy in white embossing powder on watercolor paper. And, because I watched a video on Lawnscaping Challenge blog about watercoloring with Gelatos (a product I don’t have), I pulled out my old (and rarely used!) Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Crayons , and colored the daisies roughly, scribbled a bit of green around them for the background. I used an aqua brush to paint the crayon around. Surprise! I am happy with the way it turned out.
