Fly Away with Me

Hi there! Today I have a Valentine’s Day card design for you using MFT’s London Mouse set. The idea is inspired from Harry Potter. Remember there’s a flying car in the second book/movie? That was my inspiration.

Here is my watercolor card and how I made it.

  1. On a A2 watercolor paper, stamp the houses from MFT London Mouse set. Apply masks when necessary
  2. Paint the sky background with distress inks. I have used Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean. Let dry completely before move onto the houses
  3. Loosely color the houses with Peerless watercolor. I have applied several layers to intensify the colors because I wanted the vibrant cartoon-y look
  4. Die cut and stamp the car. Watercolor it with Peerless. Let everything dry overnight
  5. Flatten the watercolor piece in my Big Shot. Trim it to size
  6. Stamp the flying tail from MFT Adorable Elephant set. The tail was supposed to be a kite’s flying tail but it totally works here! Finally, mount the flying car with foam tape
  7. Mount the whole panel onto white card base with Be Creative Tape
