Default Easy Watercolor Look Using Stamps and Markers

This is a simple way to make a watercolored scene for your cards. As you will see in the video tutorial, I do a little painting to enhance the scene but you could easily skip it.



Making the Card

1. Cut light pink cardstock 7x10 inches; fold in half for a card base.

2. Cut watercolor paper 4 1/2 x 6 inches. Tape to Craft Mat with painter's tape. Watch the video tutorial below.



Paper Sizes
Watercolor painting - cut to 4 x 5 5/8 inches
Dark pink cardstock - 4 1/8 x 5 3/4 inches, 4 5/8 x 6 1/8 inches
Patterned paper - 4 1/2 x 6 inches

3. Die cut leaves from green cardstock, shade and shape as desired. Adhere flowers, leaves, and enamel dots as shown.

For the full post (including more photos) and more tutorials, please visit Awash with Color. Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a fun craft-filled day!

Note: you will want to use water based markers for this technique (not alcohol). There are a number of markers made for stamping - I just used Memento for this card.

I've been watching some YouTube videos featuring this technique, and I think it's fascinating. Thanks for sharing your video. This technique is definitely on my list of things to try.
