Hello! The Crafty Nurse back with a collaboration project using Concord & 9th stamps and dies for the One Layer challenge at A Blog Named Hero. A very special thank you to Concord & 9th for allowing us to play with their great product this month. The design team has been working it!
There is something about one layer cards that scream watercolor to me. I was inspired by a card made by Deepti Malik from a Craftsy course she taught on watercolor. This design paired so well with the Concord & 9th “Be Classy” stamp set, I made 3 cards!
All the cards use the gorgeous Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors in #63, #64, #54 and a touch of #50 and #95 for the water and #42, #44 and #46 for the sand.
The cards couldn’t be easier. You simply lay down liquid friskit or masking fluid in a squiggly line to create the “foam.” Apply watercolor with the deeper shades in near the foam and finish with a sentiment.
My second card again uses the “Be Classy” stamp set which I embossed and cut out with the matching “Courageous” die.
My 3rd card is a little more vibrant and again uses the “Be Classy” sentiment.
I hope you’ll join us at A Blog Named Hero for our January One Layer Card Challenge! We are thrilled to be collaborating with Concord & 9th all month and I hope you were as inspired I was!
