Baby card with watercolor

Hi!

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!

    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.

    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” 🙂

    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!

    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 🙂

    I totally disagree with hubby – this card is gorgeous! The loose watercolor effect and soft edges make it perfect for a baby card. Big congrats on your well deserved win at CAS-ual Fridays!
