I've been working on my greeting cards self challenge. I'm not behind with dates, but I am behind for my own comfort. I like to be ready well in advance of the due date.
Of course Thank You cards get snuck into the mix as needed. But I even like to have those ready to go at the spur of the moment.
I have not been good with process photos. Mostly because I don't expect these watercolor techniques to turn out useable. But these are most of the supplies I used. I know that I enhanced the Color Burst watercoloring part with help from Distress Inks.
This is the first July birthday card I need. And sometimes an envelope is just a waste of an envelope when it comes to guys who have no appreciation for them at all. But this particular guy does appreciate my handmade cards.
It's for Jay. He's been mentioned in my Calendar Journals often. Usually associated with Friday happy hours, Margaritas and Chocolate Frostys.
The fake blue watercolor technique for this card was created with Distress Ink and an ink dauber. It worked out fun. That roll of foil-like stuff is a found supply. It also has been fun to experiment with.
