Watercolor Birthday Card

Watercoloring is so popular right now and I think for good reason. It's easy, it can be inexpensive, and you don't have to be a trained watercolor artist to get lovely results, especially for cardmaking. 

For this project, I tried Carolee's Creations paintables in the Happy theme.

I painted them with different watecolor media, and for this one I used Tombow Markers, they are water-based and you can scribble them on a clear stamping block and then add some water. They are the brightest colors for painting that I've found.

The geometric paper is Doodlebug and the textured blue paper was in a grab bag at Michael's. Here's a similar paper if you're interested. The only complaint I have with that paper is that you have to use some strong adhesive, because the texture makes it tricky to adhere anything to it.

Happy Wednesday!
