Drying Time Not Included-15 Minute Wonders- Come sit by me- Happy Birthday

I signed up for an online watercolor class, and have been enjoying sympathetic joy watching  others post the beautiful cards they are making inspired by the class.

Shout out to Yogi who reminded me that the way to have time is to make it!

Postcards are great for 15 minute wonders as you can't be tempted to pile anything on them.

Set your timers...

The bicycle is embossed with a Spellbinders die on a watercolor postcard.
Color with watercolors using a fine brush on the bike and a wide brush for your background wash.
Flick some wet paint that is left on your pallet for the splatters.
The new Happy Birthday Set by Quietfire is stamped in  Brilliance for just a bit of glimmer
( it's a guy card).
Dash on a boarder with a Stardust pen.
I did stop the timer when I had to wait for some places to dry.

***Tip of the Day***
Work on two cards at once when watercoloring so you can keep working while you wait for the paint to dry.

The typewriter is another embossed Spellbinders die. It cut a little bit at the top and I trust that will make it through the mail. 
I might put a bit of washi tape on it.
Suzanne suggested we use this quote from the new Garden Bench Collection with a  bench (duh).
It was not what I intended to use here and it called to me.
It's stamped in VersaFine Onyx and thermal embossed.
Ever have trouble KYMS {Keep Your Mouth Shut)?

  1. OMG, I love the typewriter! Great post! Thanks for using the stamps!

  2. Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Love them!

  3. Super Cool! When I time my work, drying time is never included. Nor is looking-for-that-thing-I-know I-had-right-here-somewhere that I want to use right now (i.e. 30 minutes later when it suddenly emerges), nor all the breaks I take to fill the coffee mug, nor all the minutes I lean back to admire what I just made, LOL.

  4. Love the second card, my son used to say cheeky when he was three-my Mom loved it! Great job with the watercolors.

  5. Love both cards. I'm into abstract water color and love seeing anything where watercolor is used. You did a great job with both of these cards.
    Happy Creating,


I love comments,constructive criticism, suggestions and RAK.
