This is a card and tutorial I had published in the Norwegian printed magazine "Ett Trykk".
In 2016 I am on their Guest Designer team.
The theme of the April Magazine was to "create your own background".
This is what I ended up creating and having published in April edition.
Create your own pattern on your card front by lightly drawing pencil lines.
Here is my finished pattern drawn by light hand with a pencil using a ruler.
Use standard glue to "draw with" following your pencil lines.
Let your glue pattern dry overnight.
Pull out your watercolours :)
Add watercolour to your cardfront. First I wet the cardstock and then added my preferred colour combination.
All finished with the watercolouring. Now it needs to dry overnight.
Here is the result the day after - all ready to be used on my card.
For my final card I added some vellum leafs - one of them I have heat embossed. The sentiment is kept very simple - just a dymo sentiment.
I am very, very satisfied with the result of this card. I had absolutely no expectations to how the end result of the glue pattern and water coloring would be.
Have a fab day :)
