I’ve got a watercolor method you can conquer quickly for an easy handmade card! And are you ready for a masculine card?  I make so many cards using flower stamps, that sometimes I just have to stop and think masculine.  This was a fun card to make and the video is full of a lot of different tips.  Today I am using WATERCOLOR PAPER for the watercoloring, rather than the Shimmery White that I often use.  I am thinking I like these results better!
