Watercolor Wednesday - WPlus9 Birthday Card

Hello everyone! It has been a couple weeks since I've posted for Watercolor Wednesday but I'm back today with this fun card I created last month for my hubby's birthday. I have recently become obsessed, er I mean aware of a stamp company called WPlus9. They also make dies and I purchased their Stag Trio die. It's PERFECT for masculine cards. I had seen some silhouette watercolor paintings on Pinterest which is where I took my inspiration for this card. I just laid down a rainbow of watercolors for my background and die cut my stag from some Simon Says Stamp woodgrain card stock. I used a stamp also by Simon Says Stamp for the Happy Birthday sentiment and then thought it would be cute to add My Deer so I used my Lawn Fawn alphabet set to create a custom sentiment.

I absolutely love creating these watercolor backgrounds like this and I'm so happy to have found a new (to me) stamp company that has such cute and fun stamps and dies! Plus, the owner is an incredible watercolorist and I've learned so much watching her videos on youtube!

This may be the most beautiful card I have ever seen. The way you got the watercolors to move and flow. Fabulous! Your color choices are perfect, Carisa.I would have loved this WITHOUT the stag. It's stunning.
