Welcome to A Year of Card Techniques Blog Hop where each month we feature a different card technique. We’ve assembled a team of card makers who range from new to advanced, so you’ll see a great variety of cards and ideas.
For May, we are venturing into the world of watercolor. There are so many watercoloring techniques available to us today; far too many to list here. But actions speak louder than words; so our team has worked with their favorite mediums to bring you lots of examples and loads of inspiration.
If you would like to check out our past technique hops, you can do that here:
- January-Shaving Cream Marbleizing
- February-So Sketchy
- March-no hop this month
- April-Stamp Set Showdown

And the awesome prize this month is:
MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge Sketch 333 and am entering this card to the challenge. The challenge ends May 23. I used the same Shimmerz Vibez as before and the same technique as before, but I didn't use a paint brush this time. I tried using the FineLine glue and it didn't work as well on this card. I used Jot deco tape for the 2 lines in the sketch- the first one has Think Happy in fine print under the design and the bottom strip is sunflowers and pink flowers. I found this washi tape at Dollar Tree, it comes 7 little rolls to a pack with 7 different designs. Almost a steal! The Hello and strawberry stickers are from a Made for Retail sticker book that was given to me in a swap with another group on Facebook. The sequins are also from SpiegelMomScraps and the kitty stamp is from Stampendous Fran's Spring Short Stack- it's 2 different stamps- the head and the dress. I used Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink to stamp them with. I adhered the sequins and watercolor paper- same as before- with Elmer's Craft Bond Permanent Tape Runner.
