Owl Watercolor Card Set {The Twinery}


Today I wanted to share with you a quick and easy watercolored card set:
I love to create card sets because adding in a few extra cards doesn't take much more time to create (if you are working assembly line style), but then can be given as a simple gift (card sets are great hostess gifts)...or you can just stash them away for the times when you need to grab a quick card for a special occasion.
For this card set, I started by stamping that cute little owl and the sentiment on some 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" watercolor paper panels. After the panels were all stamped, I added the watercolors. When the paint was dry, I added a few dots around the images and sentiments, then adhered the panels to the front of some card bases. 

I finished it all off by adding some of The Twinery's solid twines. I love the pop that the twine gives - an extra burst of color and a little bit of grounding for the image and sentiment. A simple addition, but it makes a big difference. For this set, I used The Twinery's Solid Mandarin, Solid Peapod, Solid Denim, and Solid Lilac twines.
It took only a few supplies and a little bit of time to create these. Now, the hardest part - to decide if I should give these away as a set or set them aside to use individually as a suitable occasion arrives...

Thanks for stopping by!
