Hello! The Crafty Nurse back with a collaboration project using Concord & 9th stamps and dies for the One Layer challenge here at A Blog Named Hero. A very special thank you to Concord & 9th for allowing us to play with their great product this month. I know I’ve already placed an order for more of their fabulous stamps!
There is something about one layer cards that scream watercolor to me. I was inspired by a card made by Deepti Malik from a Craftsy course she taught on watercolor. This design paired so well with the Concord & 9th “Be Classy” stamp set, I made 3 cards!
All the cards use the gorgeous Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors in #63, #64, #54 and a touch of #50 and #95 for the water and #42, #44 and #46 for the sand. The cards couldn’t be easier. You simply lay down liquid friskit or masking fluid in a squiggly line to create the “foam” then apply watercolor with the deeper shades near the foam and finish with a sentiment.
My second card again uses the “Be Classy” stamp set which I embossed and cut out with the matching “Courageous” die.
For my 3rd card, I went a bit darker to show that you can alter the mood of your scene based on the amount of color used. Again I used one of many sentiments in the “Be Classy” stamp set.
I hope you’ll join us at A Blog Named Hero for our January One Layer Card Challenge! We are thrilled to be collaborating with Concord & 9th all month and I hope you were as inspired I was!
