Relax and Enjoy Watercolor Handmade Card

Sheila brings together products from 7gypsies and Canvas Corp to create this beautiful file folder card.  Our Canvas Corp papers are printed in a simple neutral art that is longing for colors to be added, so they can coordinate with any of our paper lines or other paper collections in the market.  We love how great our vintage are looks with a little color added to it.  You can color your way – inks, pastels, watercolor, mists, markers, pencils, paints and more.

In the midwest, we are anxiously awaiting spring with the beautiful flowers and warmer weather.  Today, I am sharing a sweet spring card made with the new Watering Can line of papers, tags and embellishments and the new 7gypsies Gypsy Moments line.


To add some soft color to the Bikes & Baskets on Ivory pattern paper, I used watercolors.   Mixing the colors to coordinate with the Gypsy Moments 4″ x 6″ Printed File Folder that I used.


Applying each color used and then letting dry in between.  If you would like more of a flowing mixture of color, apply the different colors when they are still wet.


I then added a little border around with a black pen and added some glitter glue to make the images pop.


To add a little pink and glimmer to the flower petals, I spritzed them with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist and added some pink watercolor to the tips.  Allow to dry and then layer the flowers with tulle in between to add dimension.  Then I decorated the front of the file folder to complete this card.
