Easy Watercolor Card with Angela

January 18, 2020

Hello Friends!

Angela here with a brand new card featuring Days_e Phrases stamps. Today, I challenged myself to use watercolor and here is what I came up with!

 

 

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest and I wanted to give it a try.

On the front of the card I stamped twice a flower bouquet from Bella Flora stamp set. I cut along the left side with my scissors following the flowers border.

 

 

Then, instead of coloring the flowers, I colored the background with light blue watercolor, leaving white the bouquet.

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum using Gold embossing powder. The sentiment consists of two phrases. In the middle of the two I added three dots using Shikira gold gems.

 

 

Inside the card I stamped the long list of phrases from Days_e Phrases stamp. On top, I added some straight strokes of watercolor, using three shades of blue.

 

 

Fun fact: I am terrible in drawing lines and even worst when using a brush. So here is my tip, I used I T ruler as a guide. It helped me a lot in keeping my strokes quite straight.

 

 

Last, I added a few other details like some splatters and some Gina Clear Bubbles and voilà!

 

 

Thank you so very much for stopping by today. Hopefully you enjoyed the card and feel inspired to create with Ink Road Stamps stamps!

Love,

Angela

So pretty. I recently started dabbling with my watercolors, can’t wait to apply this technique to a card at my upcoming weekend retreat.
