Hedgehog Hollow Design Team Debut with a Fun Watercolor Card Background!!

There are some exciting things happening around the old inky fairy blog here and today I would like to share that I have joined The Hedgehog Hollow Design Team for their spring term! I have admired Alexandra for quite some time and have been super impressed with her subscription boxes. I was super excited when they invited me to join their spring term!

When I first saw the contents of the March Subscription box, I thought it was amazing with the crafty them. I was immediately drawn to the little paint tubes and thought it would be a fun card to have the all spilling out into a fun background of rainbow colors.

I started by stamping 5 of the paint tubes across the top of the watercolor paper trimmed down to 5.5" x 4.25" to fit a standard size A2 card base. I used my favorite watercolor ink by Inkon3 and stamped some off the page so it looked pretty random. After that, I started adding my paint in rainbow order using a small round 2 watercolor brush and slowly drawing the color down the page. I also splashed a bit of the color on the background for even more texture in the background. I added some shading with a neutral gray paint and shimmer with Inkon3 Liquid Pixie Dust mixed with some water on the tubes as well as splashing a little on the entire card.

Next, I used my stamp platform to stamp this beautiful hand lettered stamp inspire mixing the font with You and Me that is also in the sentiment stamp set. The sentiments are endless with this versatile set and I am excited to use it more throughout the month!

I filmed the entire process for you from start to finish along with some of my favorite techniques to watercolor stamps and backgrounds. I'm excited to bring you at least 2 video tutorials using each months stamp contents throughout my term and hope you will enjoy the first one here or watch director my YouTube channel! 

**My video is giving me grief when I try to export it but I'm continuing to troubleshoot it and hopefully will have it available soon!**

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today! Until next time, do something that makes you happy today!
