Watercolor Herb Garden

Here is a card we made in May's card making class and yes, everyone had to use some watercolor paints. I had the watercolor paper cut down to panels of 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" and we stamped them in black StazOn ink. Remember, if you like to use water on these images, you need an ink that is NOT water-based!

We used a wide brush and three different colors of watercolor paint to give each herb a different background. All we had to do is draw a rectangle behind the herbs and let them dry.

A piece of lightly marbled blue design paper from Close to my Heart was cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered in the center of the base front. We added the herb panels with foam dots to the middle of the card and strung a piece of hemp string over them. On one side we tied a bow and used a glue dot to hold it in place. At the other end we place a glue dot on the card and rolled the string from the outside of the glue dot to the inside pressing it hard into the glue dot. All left over strings were cut off.

I hope you like this other version of watercolor use too :-)....keep trying and stay tuned for more to come...
