Buzzy Bee Watercolour Card

Hi, crafty friends! It's been such a long time since I last updated you on the blog. Things have been crazy busy, so I haven't had much time to post anything. However, I was able to get some cardmaking scheduled in. To get back into the swing of things, I made a simple watercolour card, featuring some bees and flowers from our Bee's Knees set.

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for links to all the products used.

I started this simple card by Distress blending onto a Neenah cardbase. While it was drying, I wanted to make a marshmallowy cloud effect, so I die cut some clouds out of watercolour paper, and vellum to give the illusion of depth. I then stuck them onto the card with some adhesive tape.

Using a Mini MISTI and my trusty Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped a row of flowers and a bee on either side. I thought adding a sentiment would be cute, also I stamped it in the centre, under the other elements.

To finish it off, I used some Distress Inks and a waterbrush, to act as watercolours. No shading on this card, I just wanted it to be clean and simple. And that's it for today! Thank you so much for reading!
