Default Removing bumps from watercolor paper

I love one layer cards, particularly those from watercolor paper. Make an A2 card from watercolor paper and run it through your die cut machine prior to watercoloring. It will flatten out most of the bumps and make it easier to stamp a clean image. Once the paint dries, I run it through a second time to help de warp!

here is an example.

Clever girl! I'd just add... if your cutting plates are really marred (like mine) be sure to put a piece of text weight paper over the surface you're going to paint on so it doesn't pick up the texture of the plate.

Great idea! Never even thought of that one! And Dina's addition is great too. One of my plates is just like she described!

I can't wait to try this!

I understand that "hot press" watercolor paper is very smooth, and "cold press" watercolor paper is much rougher. I've priced the hot press watercolor paper. It is really out of my price range! So, this sounds like a wonderful idea!

My local stores don't carry hot press so this is much better option for me!

Thanks for sharing this. I bought a couple of large sheets of hot press paper on sale a couple of weeks ago (not even sure how I'm going to get it cut up accurately!). The cold press is much, much easier to find and comes in smaller, easier to handle sizes (and in pads/booklets as well), but that texture can be too much sometimes.

Thanks again for the ideas!

That is genius, Joan! You still get the absorbency of the watercolor paper, but can stamp smoothly... Great thinking!!

Great tip Joan, and can't wait to try your tip. I use lots of adhesive to make sure my watercolor layer lays flat. Think of the money I'll save on adhesive, know I'm not alone! Yeah!

Who would have thought! And of course I would have tried it with my marred plates so thanks for the heads up about using text paper.

I tried this the other day, but it didn't work. It was worth a try, though. I'm glad it works for some.
