I was once afraid of watercoloring but now I enjoy doing it so much... it's so forgiving and I encourage you to try!
There are so many watercolor mediums in the market nowadays. For my card I used distress inks reinkers with wet on wet technique which mean I wet the watercolor paper first and then dropped in the colors ramdomly and let the colors do their job. I choose reinkers because they're more concentrated and vibrant. But if you have only ink pads, they will do the same thing just that colors might not be so bright.
After I let the watercolor panel dried overnight or you can used heat tool to speed up the process, I used Fancy Stitched Lable dies (2nd one from the largest) to cut my panel and mounted onto thin black layering color. I also stamped the rabbit from Peek A Boo Animals stamp and colored her with inktense watercolor pencils. I stamped her twice. One I colored her as per normal and another one I only colored on her paws.
I then fussy cut the paws out. For the main rabbit I used the same Fancy Stitched Lable dies to cut her out at the bottom part and fussy cut her out the rest of the area. I attached the rabbit directly to the panel. Once I had the position of the rabbit I then stamped the sentiment.
I prepared my card base by using the frame dies from Picture Frame Dies and cut it twice from black card stock and attached them together. Then I adhered the watercolor panel on top. For the center panel I put on form tape to pop it up. For the paws I double the form tape to give more dimension. I also sprinkle the Lily White Sprinkle near to the sentiment and to accent my card.
Here's the closer look
Hope you like it and give it a try. Have a Wonderful Day!
