Watercolor Pickup

     I love the old postcard fibe I get from this card. I'm still practicing my watercolor stamping with Tim Holtz Distress Markers. For this card I used Theresa Momber's "Country Roads" that I purchased two years ago. The paper looks torn as I used torn Post-Its to mask the edges. The perfect masculine birthday card.

  1. Hi Sharon! What a stunning card! I think that your practicing is making perfect! I love how you did the edges - I had to re-read that to understand what you did because it looks like you tore the paper! Awesome! I am going to have try that. This truly looks like you freehanded this card. So beautiful!! PS - the twine and leaf - perfect (I was sidetracked by the watercoloring and forgot about the reason for the challenge!) Thanks for playing along with us at Retro Rubber!

  2. Whoa! This card is just gorgeous!! I love your stamped images and will have to give this technique a go. The twine is the perfect touch for a masculine card. Love it!!

  3. Fantastic - vintage and masculine, beautiful watercolouring and using the torn post its for masking to give a torn paper effect is fantastic, it means the card looks layered without being too heavy or bulky for posting. Thanks for sharing at Cardz 4 Guyz
