A dreaming bear
Hi guys, Julie here with you today and I am sharing a card with the Happy Camper stamp set. There was a new baby born in my family and I wanted to make a cute card for the occasion. This sleeping bear is the perfect image for this type of card. I was actually inspired to use purple and gold on my card. They are not usually colors that I tend to use, but I really love the end result.
I started with a panel of Arches watercolor paper and used a background stamp to emboss with a gold embossing powder. It's a subtle gold in the back, but it makes texture and I love it. Then, I used Mungyo watercolor and mixed a bunch of blue and purple colors. As I like to say, I build this with layers. I let it dry and then add more if I want to deepen the colors, of to make more texture. Don't be afraid to go back and add color.
I hope you liked my project today, thank you for stopping by and have an awesome day!
