This watercolor card is one of the easiest that I did. No fussy coloring when you work with a detailed die and embossing folder. Just add little water with ink and Voila! you have a beautiful watercolor look card. Did I tell you that I love this suite? Oh! this suite is amazing and so friendly to use.
I have the how-to video at the bottom of this post or you can view it on my YouTube Channel.
Step by step watercolor
- Die-cut the Seaside Seashells out of 5½ x 4¼ piece of watercolor paper.
- Align the die-cut watercolor paper in the seashells embossing folder and emboss.
- Spritz water with the spritz bottle.
- Using the Painter Brush filled with water, dip into ink then drop ink-water on the embossed paper. Keep repeating till you have all the shells color. (color ink are Pool Party, Petal Pink, Crumb Cake and So Saffron)
- The seaweed I watercolor with Old Olive.
- To have a deeper image you can emboss again while it still wet. (optional) If you do this step make sure to rinse your embossing folder after removing the ink left in the folder.
- Let dry and assemble.
- Very Vanilla Thick or Crumb Cake 11 x 4¼ score at 5½ card base. 5¼ x 4 for inside if using crumb cake for the card base
- Watercolor Paper 5½ x 4¼
On Crumb Cake
This is the same then the card above the only thing different is the card base is Crumb Cake. Some of the colors is darker just because I added more ink. No matter how many times you will do watercolor it will look different each time.
On the inside, I stamped the sand dollar shells using Gray Granite and greeting Old Olive ink.
