Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 91

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, Dara Gloden’s sweet designs.

I’m traveling this week and I have two sweet travel inspired cards to share today!  My cards feature watercoloring (shocker!) and the Mediterranean Moments stamp set.  This set just begs you to break out the watercolors and to use the spotlighting technique.  My cards feature a little of both 🙂

The images are stamped in Archival Black ink on watercolor paper.  Watercolor as desired.  One card features spotlighting so the image is stamped in the black ink on the card base and the watercolored image is cut out and popped up over the base image.  The other card has the whole image cut out and added to the base after it was watercolored.  Both are super easy techniques and the cards came together quickly!  The image of an old doorway in Italy doesn’t need to be colored everywhere, the random addition of color adds to the old world feel of the cards.
