Clean and Simple Sunday #5-2016

Today's Clean and Simple Challenge is Get Well or Sympathy Cards

Gracie is up first with this gorgeous watercolored card.

I used Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor cardstock and stamped AI'S Blooming Birdhouse stampset.  I used Marvy Watercolor markers (10, 8, 9, 4 & 11).  The hardest part is waiting for it to dry lol.  This was my first attempt with watercolor markers and I am hooked!  ~Gracie


The Clean and Simple card was made on white card with ink coloration on the background.  I used Dusty Concord purple from Ranger Distress Inks, Memento turquoise ink and Old Olive ink from Stampin' Up.  The sentiment is from a Hobby Lobby stamp using the concord purple Ranger ink. ~Kathy

Whether you choose watercoloring, stamping, embossing or another fun technique make someone's day today and send them a little pick me up.

Happy Crafting

  1. Gracie, I love what you did with your card! Beautiful job! Now you make me want to try water color markers!

    Kathy, isn't it amazing what we can do to plain white paper? Love that verse you used as well!

  2. I love that you both used the same colors which are very soothing.
