Watercolored Welcome

Here's my card for the current AEI♥U spring themed challenge.  I tried my hand at a little watercoloring and put together a baby card using Avery Elle's Storybook stamp set.  Nothing says spring like new babies, right?

Welcome Little One card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Avery ElleI stamped the sweet duck image in black pigment ink on a piece of watercolor paper, then did my best to add a soft watercolored background around the image.  This is actually my second try--the first one (which I liked better!) was ruined when I did some heat embossing on the sentiment.  Hate when that happens!  On this one, I skipped the heat embossing and just stamped the sentiment in black ink.  I added a few white sequins around the panel and topped it with a narrow strip of dotted washi tape. After matting the panel on blue cardstock, I adhered it to a light green card base.

Materials Used:
Storybook stamp set (Avery Elle); VersaFine Onyx Black ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); Gable Green cardstock (Stampin' Up!); blue dotted washi tape; watercolors
