Hello everyone, I’m back! I missed all of you. I’m here today to show you a fun way to create watercolor cards.
Today I’m using a brand new stamp set called Forever Friend and my favorite watercolor set.
Take a look at my watercolor cards:
Wet on wet watercoloring is so easy and the best way to create a background scene. For this card, the recipient loves coffee, so I created this card to fit her taste.
Here’s how I created these watercolor cards:
Gather your supplies:
Watercolor Paper Pad
Jet Black Mixed Media Ink
Ruby Red Mixed Media Ink
Artist Watercolor 24 Pan Set
With Love Wax Seal Stamp
Wax Seal Melting Soon
Rose Gold Wax Seal Beads Set
Corner Rounder Punch
Heat Gun (optional)
Let’s make the cards:
Wet the watercolor paper with water.
Decide on the colors you want to use. I used Fall Harvest and Delectable Delights.
Add as much color as you want, allowing the water to move the paint around on the paper.
Once you reach your desired look, let the watercolors dry.
I’m impatient, so I used my heat gun to dry the watercolors faster.
Use a bone folder to crease the scoreline.
Round two corners using a corner rounder.
Place the card in the Mini Misti and stamp the image and sentiment as desired.
For the sentiment, instead of cutting it in half, use a piece of washi tape and cover the sentiment that you don’t want to ink.
Once you ink the stamp’s portion, you want to stamp, remove the washi tape, and then stamp.
Nice and easy watercolor cards.
Melt 3 wax seals in the wax seal spoon over a candle you have on hand.
Once the wax melts, pour it over the envelope closure and place the wax seal right on top.
Leave for a minute and then slowly pull the wax seal off to reveal the pretty seal.
Let’s take another look at that seal.
I hope you enjoyed this project. Would you make a couple of watercolor cards and wax seal the envelopes for your next project or gift-giving package? I would love to hear your thoughts. If you would like to see another project using watercolors that I created, click here.
