I just bought some Peerless watercolors and I LOVE them! You can get really vibrant colors but today a went for a muted palette, and I only used two colors. My inspiration was pixel art, so that was what I wanted to replicate for my background. I cut the word die two times and adhered them slightly offset, and then adhered the wood stars.
I asked my husband if he liked this card, he is a honest critic and said he didn’t like it at all. He thought that the card would look better if the squares was exactly the same size, I tried to explain how watercolor works and that I wanted a loose effect but he still didn’t like it. I kind of like it so I thought I should share it with you anyway. What do you guys think? Would this card look better if the squares where exactly the same size?
As always, thanks for stopping by, see you soon and take care!

I think the card looks great just the way it is. I am going to make a background just like it in the future. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks you so much Tracy! I’m happy that I could inspire!
I love your card just like it is. Husbands often don’t appreciate that hand made “art” is better if it’s not exactly symmetrical as it shows it’s actually been created by hand.
Thanks Kathy! If you ask me there is a lot of things husbands don’t understand….LOL! I’m really happy that you like my card! 🙂
Beautiful water colored background and I love how you created the shadow for your sentiment! Stunning card, Joanna!
Thanks for your sweet comment Barb!

Now I know who the brainy one is, I’ll keep looking for your posts.
Jag tycker kortet är jättefint och tänkte inte ens på att fyrkanterna var olika stora. Det är ju helheten som gör det! Så fint med vattenfärger! Ser det lite överallt nu så det verkar vara “inne” 🙂
Tack så mycket Kia!
Wow I LOVE this card! I pinned it immediately- I hope you don’t mind?- I love the look of the uneven squares! You did an awesome job watercoloring them:)
Thanks Jamie! I’m happy to hear that you like it! Ofcourse I don’t mind if you pinned it, I use pintrest a lot my self, love all the inspiration!
Jag tycker att det var jättefint!!
I think it’s gorgeous! And I DO know how hard that must have been since I’ve been sitting here looking and trying to wrap my head around it! That must have taken some time and patience! And my husband doesn’t like everything I do either. Usually it’s something I really like or think is particularly “artsy” that he doesn’t care for. A simple man with simple tastes. And I often like that Clean & Simple look too, but there is all kinds of room for other stuff that I love. Really nice work!
I REALLY love this card, such a non-conventional style for a baby card! Thanks for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays, Rebecca x
Underbart kort, Joanna! Det fina med kortet är ju precis det att rutorna är olika! Gjorde just själv ett baby kort… du är välkommen att besöka min blog om du känner för det 🙂
Tack Laura! Glad att du gillade det!
Hej igen! GRATTIS!!! Om du inte vet vad jag talar om, kolla genast CAS-ual Fridays blog! Nu kan du säga till din man: Där fick du dej! Hahahaha! Kram
Oh, Tack Laura! 🙂 Jag ska genast säga till honom! Hahahaha!
I would say your husband probably doesn’t have an eye for art. This is a fabulous card – very clever.
Thanks Jenny! I’m happy you like it!
I respectfully disagree with your hubby – I love it! Thanks so much for joining us at CASual Fridays 🙂
