Watercolor For the Birds

for the birds friend card angle Here’s the details on the card I thought I had posted in July, but Oops! I hadn’t.

This For The Birds watercolored tag card was inspired by the card on page 35 in the catalog.  I changed the colors and simplified it a bit.  Most of the work on this card is the watercoloring, which is actually quite simply done with Aqua Painters and Reinkers.

Watch the how to watercolor with reinkers tutorial here.

for the birds friend card detail

Use StazOn ink to keep your stamped outline from smearing when you paint it.  And as you paint don’t be perfect.  Leave some white spots, go over the lines, color some areas darker – this all adds to the charm of watercolor.

 To create the circle reinforcement at the top of the tag, punch the small hole first and then punch out the 1/2″ circle centering the hole.  And to cut the corners on the tag, consider using the diagonal scoring plate to score one corner then turn the tag over and score the other corner.  Use the score lines as a guide to evenly snip off the corners and create the tag.

for the birds friend card I love these cute birds!  And anyone would be thrilled if you created this cute little friendship card just for them!

Enjoy! Julie
