Water Colour Background

Hello Crafters,

Today I am sharing a card I made using the water colour technique for the background of my card. Can you believe, I have never used the watercolour paper until now?

And check out the colours ~ I have used Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz & Bermuda Bay!


The card base is Bermuda Bay. Now to explain how I created that gorgeous water colour background.

I used the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Stampin’ Write Markers in each of the colours alternating the colours on each of the lines on one side of the TIEF. You may notice that the ink drys, but do not worry until you have finished adding the inks. Once finished, I sprayed the embossing folder with Stampin’ Mist (you know the stuff we use with our Stampin’ Cleaner!!!) and then put a piece of water colour paper on top and closed the folder gently and rub. Open the folder and tada, you have a gorgeous water colour background. Put this aside to dry.


The flower from the Mixed Bunch stamp set and punched out with the Blossom punch and the 1″ circle punch. I curled the petals using my thumb and joined the pieces with dimensionals.

Here is another close up of the image.


I just love this background and will certainly try some more water colouring!!!
