Hello Foxy!

Day 2 of the Online Card Class – Watercolor for Card Makers


My card for today concentrates on a watercolour background using the emboss resist technique featured yesterday, it looks like I am going to be working a day behind, I really want to try all the methods and techniques, its just a pity I have to go to work all day, which only leaves me with around an hour in the evenings to play..

hello foxy


If you already follow my blog, you will recognise the wee foxy tag I added to the front of my watercoloured embossed background, it was part of my homework for class that I was practicing over the weekend.    He just fitted perfectly on this card, it was meant to be!

I will add a list of supplies at the bottom of this post, just incase you are interested in any of the products I used.

hello foxy 2

supplies list :-

  • Simon Says Stamp Green Cardstock

  • Versamark
  • Hero Arts Fine White Embossing Powder
  • October Afternoon Background Stamp

The Watercolour Cat

I got in late from work this evening, so did’t really have much time to do a spot of crafting… but at half past 8 I decided i would have a sneaky wee hour up in my shed.

The last time I was up there, I die cut some tags, and because they were at hand… that’s what tonight’s crafty project is…

I also cut out a cat in water colour card stock using a memory box die, then I gave it a good covering of water and added drops of watered down distress stain.. the result gave me a tortoise shell coloured cat, and it looks just like our very first cat!
