I have been loving all the beautiful watercolor cards you all have been posting. This is my first time trying it myself. At first, I painted some freehand watercolor backgrounds but wasn't just loving them. But then I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and oh, boy, I love the effect. I just wet my watercolor paper with a brush and then stamped the pink, yellow and green. It really gives the illusion of hand-painting! Let it dry completely. I used my heat tool to dry it quickly (since I had it out to emboss). The watercolor paper curls up some, so I ran it through my Cuttlebug to 'iron' it out a bit.
I was surprised that this was a pretty easy card to make. The right tools (aka the Gorgeous Grunge set!!) make all the difference sometimes! I can't wait to try with different color combos!

What a fun burst of color and the texture is a welcomed touch!
