Everyone has been talking about the eclipse that is happening today in the United States and that is exactly what inspired Samantha M with her very clever card! She used Magic Slider Dies, Out of this World, Push Here, Aloha and Plane and Simple.

Beautiful Watercolor Card with Christy

Christy joins us today to share a fabulous Upon a Star design!

Hello, everyone, Christy here. For today’s card I wanted to use Upon A Star, and I thought it might be pretty to use some shimmery watercolors. The ones I own are the Twinkling H2Os, but there are lots of brands of shimmer paints on the market right now, so you could easily find something similar if you don’t already have it in your stash.

I painted my background with a wash of color using green, turquoise, blue, and purple shades, then painted the two foxes with a combination of a rusty red and golden orange. Once those were dry, I white heat embossed a selection of stars, as well as part of my sentiment on the background panel, then finished the sentiment on a scrap of black cardstock.

To finish things off I die cut my panel with the largest of the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies, and adhered it to a Black Licorice card base. I hope you like it!

You still have a few days left to play along in our Watercolor challenge. I can’t wait to see what you create!

Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Christy!
Our Watercolor Challenge 7 will be open until 11:59 PM PT on Sunday July 2.
