Wonderful Watercolors

Hi!  As I mentioned previously, it is National Watercoloring Month!  One of my favorites techniques is the Watercolor Wash – it is fun, easy to do, and every card looks a little bit different.  I shared this technique at a recent workshop I did and so today, am sharing it with you.

Quiet Meadow, Charming Sentiments, Watercolor Wash, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #watercoloring

To create the background, add a few drops of reinker to the lid of its coordinating ink pad.  Use a Watercolor Brush to pick up the ink and paint it onto Watercolor Paper measuring 3 3/4″ x 5″.  My colors here are all from the 2022-2024 In Colors and start from the top – Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Orchid Oasis and Starry Night.   Set aside to dry.

For the flowers, die cut a piece of Watercolor paper using the Meadow Dies.  Using the same technique as above, add color for the flowers and stem.  Set aside to dry.  Die-cut the same flower from a piece of Basic Black cardstock as well.

On a scrap piece of Basic White, stamp a sentiment in Orchid Oasis ink from the Charming Sentiments stamp set.  Die cut with the coordinating die.  I truly LOVE this bundle.  I do not have an electric die-cutting machine, and have loved the look of the die-cut sentiments so was super excited when I saw this bundle in the new catalog.

The base of this card is Orchid Oasis – cut 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded.  A piece of Basic Black measuring 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ is adhered on front.

Tie a piece of the glittered Orchid Oasis ribbon around the Watercolor paper and adhere to the Basic Black mat.

You can give the flower a little bit of sparkle with the Wink Of Stella glitter brush as seen in the picture above.  (It shimmers a bit more in real life).  Attach the watercolor flower to the die cut Basic Black – shifting it slightly so that you can see just a bit of the Basic Black flower behind it.

Tuck the flower stem behind the ribbon and attach to the Watercolor background.  Use dimensionals to attach the sentiment over the ribbon.  Finish the card by adding a few of the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots.

If you are like me and love the look of watercolor, I hope you’ll give this technique a try.
