I had so much fun last night on our Facebook Live! I shared with everyone this pretty card, featuring a circular watercolor shape, inspired by Beth’s Paper Cuts. Along the way, I also showed my happy accident making a quick tassel for your projects!
First, it’s a lot of fun to make this circular watercolor background, something that didn’t seem possible without die cutting the circle. Here I’ve used Just Jade and Mossy Meadow. They do come out a lot lighter than one might think, of course, being dilute quite a bit with water.
The doves are gorgeous in white, but also gorgeous done in the metallic foils. I used the Gold Brushed Metallic Foil here; I didn’t want the bird too shiny in this instance. The brushed foils are perfect when you want metallic, but something more toned down than a mirror-like foil.
Each circle will turn out quite differently, even when you use the same colors! I was trying to go for a globe type of look here and used Mossy Meadow and Just Jade. I like the little “imperfections” of watercoloring. It makes every one unique, while still being quite flat.
I’ve always been a big fan of tassels! I love to wear them, too. Now I discovered quite an easy way to make one, or the look of one. Plus, it’s yet another way to use your stash of ribbons. This technique doesn’t work on ALL ribbon, but most. You can only give it a try. (I used the Mint Macaron Basket Weave Ribbon here)
