Hi! Tombow Watercolor Background
Once the cardstock was dry, I stamped modern zinnia in mermaid and grapefruit on the background. I inked once and stamped twice to get variations in shade and design. Then, I added the Valentine washi and popped up a bermuda petite polka dot envelope and mermaid petite pinstripe with the Even Taller Alphabet letters "hi" cut out of grapefruit.
I forgot to take a picture of the inside but it had some grapefruit zinnias stampe on the edges.
Wouldn't this card just make someone's day?! I think so and it's so easy to do! :) Plus the beauty is that you can make this with so many marker variations and it will look entirely different. I loved seeing how different each of the backgrounds were in class. Some colored a lot and made the background darker. Some colored a little and had a pastel background like mine. Each was beautiful and each worked perfectly for the card.
I hope you'll give this watercolor background a try! If you don't have any tombow markers, you can pick some up here: www.amusestudio.com/seleise
Have a wonderfully creative day!!
