Real and Faux Watercolor with The Hedgehog Hollow June 2019 Box

Hey there! Today I'm creating two cards using the June 2019 box from The Hedgehog Hollow! I created simple watercolor backgrounds and added "faux watercolor" patterned paper on top! And I took quite a journey to come up with these two cards ... check out my video to travel along with me! Haha! I'll just leave the shortened and final version here!

At first I was drawn to the large zentangle fish image and stamped and heat embossed him with gold fine detail powder. I trimmed out the image with my scissors. As I flipped through the papers included in the box I fell in love with the watercolor wave paper! I trimmed around the wave images so that they would fit with my card design.

The watercolor wave images weren't standing out against my white card bases - so I decided to add a bit of color with my Altenew Watercolors. I wanted to keep the background loose and flowey so I used plenty of water and dropped in color randomly.

I had stamped a second zentangle fish in black and it was too intense for this card design, so I used the Seahorses stamp set to stamp out a layered seahorse. SO SO SO cute! I added all my pieces together and added a stamped sentiment strip on top!

Thanks for watching!
