Water colour baby card

Hi Crafters,

As I told you the other day, I am glad to be back home from my Easter holidays. And one of the reasons is, that my order from Simon's finally came in while I was away, which was SO unfair! I'd been waiting for it so long (the first parcel got lost and it had to be re-shipped) and then it would arrive while I was away.

Well, now I am back, and unpacked everything, and I am sooo happy with what I got. I feel like I don't know where to start and what to use first. But I wanted to create something on the day we arrived back, when I was very tired from the drive and also a little ill. So I chose the Altenew Ori Kami set and did some simple water coloring with it. Others have used the set in similar ways, it's perfect for it.

I stamped the image on watercolor paper and embossed it in white. Then I wet the elephant with plain water and dropped in some color along the folds and let the water do most of the blending work.

When the elephant was done, I wet the area around it and added some blue and let that bleed out naturally. Then I added the sentiment and cut the panel with my new stitched rectangles die and added it to a grey card base.

Hope you have a good day
