What's Canoe With You?


The week is speeding by over here, but I had a moment the other day to make a fun watercolor card for Avery Elle's AEIHeartU Challenge.  It's no secret, I adore watercolor, any way you can, gelatos, Pencils, Markers, ink pads!

To get started, I took the dark green, mint and aqua Studio Calico ink pads, and rubbed a bit onto my craft mat, and spritzed each with water.  I then applied it to my wet watercolor paper panel, dried it with my heat tool, and reinked it multiple times.

I then took the adorable Happy Camper set, and created my scene.  I started with the mountains, and added the trees.  I then stamped the canoe, in what looks like a lake.  I stamped my sentiment onto a banner, and adhered it with foam.

Sequins finished it off, and I have to say, I think I like it!  Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. OMG, I just LOVE the way this turned out. It seriously looks like a map of outdoor goodness. Awesome card!!!

  2. Love how your water colored background turned out!
    Thanks for linking this up to the AE Water Color Challenge!

  3. Ahhh, this is such a sweet scene, Lindsay. I love how you articulated your process of creating this amazing design - every inch of effort you took to create this shows in every lovely detail! Thanks so much for playing with us at the AEI♥U Challenge - we're so happy that you did!
