On Brutus Monroe, Be Unique Bulldog Greeting card I made with a cool watercolor background. I love how this card turned out. There is so much personality in that little bulldog. Don’t you want to rock with him?
This background just brings out the personality in the bulldog. I love being able to create new backgrounds with tools I already have don’t you? Having all the wonderful inks pads from Brutus Monroe on hand helped to make this background.
This can be used for more than today’s Be Unique Bulldog Greeting card. Think about putting flowers over the top. Choosing a fun saying. There are so many options just keep playing, you will get so many beautiful backgrounds to use.
The technique for Be Unique Bulldog Greeting card.
Take a piece of watercolor paper and swipe through the colors. Dry with a heat tool for a moment. Apply more color as wanted drying between swipes so that the colors don’t muddy. Love how every time this technique is done it is different.
Mount card top with Aleenes Tacky Glue, to a standard A2 card. If the top is still damp lay a large acrylic block on top of the card until it dries. This will keep it from curling.
This is a super simple card that looks like it took forever to make. I just love playing with this background and seeing how the different colors look behind the stamped images.
Here is a video of the whole process.
Have some fun with this technique there is just so much you can do this. And make sure you head over to the Brutus Monroe Blog and store so you too can create a Be Unique Bulldog Greeting card.
