Welcome everyone!! I had this crazy thought of bringing Art Journaling to cardmaking by creating simple small pieces of art that I can give away. I also thought this would be a great way to show how you can try Art journaling on a smaller scale.
I started by using coordinating colors like Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers in a small area of the stencil. I spritzed the ink with water and pressed the stencil onto a panel of Distress watercolor cardstock. I added several layers using different stencils and colors along the way.
As I worked on the vibrant piece and before cleaning the stencil off with each color, I pressed the stencil onto a second piece of watercolor cardstock with the remaining ink. This gave me a really interesting background and didn’t take much time at all!
I used a bit Dina Wakely and Dylusions washi tape over the stamped Tim Holtz Wildflowers, then finished off my cards by adding Tim Holtz Tiny Text Remnant Rub messages in both black and white. This is a super easy technique to try and every piece will be unique!!
I filmed a full process video of how I created these cards.. You can view the video below or on our YouTube channel HERE.
