Papercraft Business Challenge #4 | Design Team Project

Hello all!

Can you believe it’s March 1st already?!
Today I’m sharing my March design team project for Papercraft Business Challenge Blog.
Please click HERE to learn more and see how you can participate!

This month’s theme is “Anything Goes” with an optional theme challenge of Easter. Play along for inspiration and a chance at winning a prize!

For my card, I took a watercolor panel and used my Tim Holtz Distress ink in Tumbled Glass coupled with My Favorite Thing’s Mini Cloud stencil to create that airy, cloud background. I then heat embossed those letters using Lawn Fawn’s Quinn’s Alphabet stamp set.

Recently, I purchased the Dr. pH Martin’s liquid Hydrus watercolors, set A so this was my first time playing with them. They are so vibrant and I would highly recommend them!
I free-handed the shape of balloons around each letter and drew in the balloon strings.

Finally, I cut a narrow strip of My Favorite Things Party Patterns paper for the bottom of my card. I mounted the watercolor panel on some heavyweight yardstick base using some foam tape.


Such a quick card and I love how the card colors turned out colorful and pastel-y… which remind me of spring. I miss the constant sunshine and last week’s epic downpours (6 inches of rain in a few days!) makes me yearn it so much more!

Please play along and check out my fellow design team sisters’ projects as they have some awesome and inspiring projects. Can’t wait to see what you create!

  1. Hi Ashley,
    Time is just flying by, now March & before you know it, it will be Christmas again lol
    Such a beautiful burst of colours that you’ve used on your card. I haven’t used watercolours yet, but intend to try one day. I love how you free-handed the balloons, they turned out great 🙂 Awesome job!

    • Lisa, thank you for the kind words! I only had to use 1 drop of the watercolors with water to dilute…I was so pleasantly surprised to see how vivid the color saturation was! Can’t wait to see all the inspiration for this month’s challenge! 🙂
