MFT Card Design Contest Take 2

Hey there!

It is a new week here on the blog, and it will be busy, I can assure you! Today, I have another card to share for the MFT Superstar Card Design contest!

You know I love watercolor, and I had to give it a go this weekend, so...

I began with a panel of Tim Holtz Watercolor cardstock, and wet it really well with water. I then brought in Cracked Pistacio, Mermaid Lagoon, and Peacock Feathers, blending the colors with a wet paint brush. I allowed it to dry, and then die cut the center out with the Die-namics Double Stitched Oval. I layered three pieces of black die cut ovals together, along with my watercolor piece, and reinserted it into the panel.

I added some of the Dots & Stripes Neutral patterned paper to the edges of my card base, and adhered my panel with strong adhesive. To finish it off, I stamped a sentiment from the Thanks So Very Much stamp set, as well as added a sweet little heart from the Heart Puzzle Die-namics. I applied a good amount of Wink of Stella to it and a generous coat of Glossy Accents!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!


  1. I'm in love with the watercolor look too! You've done a fabulous job here. It reminds me of your blog header, which I have been swooning over. I've been thinking about changing mine to something like this.

  2. What an amazing card Lindsay - love your colours, and the way you have used the die cut.
