Watercolor Trio Quick Card

I am SO into these quick cards lately. I'm not purposely making them. I just think of a layout and suddenly it all just goes together so quickly.

I wanted to do a black on white card but decided not to. I wanted a little more color than just black but I wanted to be able to do the white ink on my card. SO the new Concord Crush color worked perfectly for this.

When using Craft white ink you want to stamp your image first and set it aside to dry. Craft ink takes longer to dry. So after I stamped the images I set the piece aside to dry. And when it's sitting there I was looking at it thinking of what to put in the upper left corner. It had to be something simple and the way the card was going, it had to be something quick too! Well, you can't go wrong with punches!!

The words were done using the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. It's such a fun set. The words work really well with the "Word Window" punch but some of them work well with the oval punches too! And this one happened to have worked out!
I stamped the words in the Concord Crush ink so it matched the card stock. I could have done them in black too but this ink was dark enough to work!
That's pretty much all there is to this card. And this set has words with it too so you don't need more than one set to make a card. Though I'm not sure if the words would fit in the oval or not. This is a very versatile set too. You can use these images for other cards as well. Like thinking of you, thank you, sympathy, Mother's Day and get well. Plus other things you can think of that would work with these flowers. It's such a pretty set.

You can ship up a bunch of these cards in no time!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I really like this. I think I want to do the white on dark for my next club.

I also just read a tutorial about adding some color to the white ink with colored pencils or the water color crayons.

Thanks for being so faithful about posting. ia m trying to get back in the groove again!
