Watercolor Mini Cards of Encouragement #1


One of the current swaps at Art & Sassy is mini cards.  The rules are that the cards must be about 2 1/2" square, have 4 different sentiments and that you need to make 2 sets.  I thought this sounded like a lot of fun, so I decided to join. It's not too late if you would like to join the fun.  Just click here.


My inspiration came from a watercolor class called "Watercolors for Cardmakers" that I recently took from onlinecardclasses.com.  I highly recommend the classes from here.  This is the second one that I have taken and I have learned so much.


Stamps
"Sunny Days" from Scrappy Cats
"All Occasion Messages" from Hero Arts


Distress Ink Pads and Marker Color Combinations
Peacock Feathers & Salty Ocean
Picked Raspberry & Dusty Concord
Dusty Concord & Stormy Sky
Barn Door & Fired Brick

Other Items:

Antique Linen Distress Ink
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Mixed colored and white cardstocks from my scrap stash
Mainstays Sequins


Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
