Hi crafty friends! Today I have a super soft watercolor baby card using some Mama Elephant products and a couple of fun techniques!
For this card I started out by stamping some of the images from the Wish Upon A Star stamp set by Mama Elephant onto Canson Montval 200 gsm watercolor cardstock in Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. I didn’t want to use black for the outline because I thought that would be too harsh. I then colored them in with my Karin Brushmarkers and fussy cut them out. (If you want more info about the coloring process, please watch the video below.)
Now onto some die cutting, I cut a window from an A2 sized piece of Canson Montval 300 gsm cardstock using the blanket stitch oval dies by Pinkfresh Studio. I also die cut a cloud border and a rainbow, both dies are from the Mama Elephant Slim Scenescape Rainbow Add-on die set. I cut the cloud border from more of the Canson Montval cardstock and the rainbow three times from thick white cardstock and once from various patterned paper. I layered all those arches together and then taped them together on the back with purple tape so it would be easier to put on the card.
For the background I did some ink smooshing using Aqua Sky and Oceanside from Concord and 9th. I worked in layers, heat setting it in between each layer. I did the same for the cloud border piece I cut but with Sorbet, Grapefruit and Buttercup inks. I put it all together with foam tape and foam squares.
That finishes up this card! Please let me know if you have any questions. Make sure to follow me on Instagram, I post a new card every day! And subscribe to me on YouTube for video tutorials.
