A Watercolour Birthday


Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by! Today I want to share A very quick card that I created using some watercolors, some heat embossing and stamping. I'm so excited that I finally got the chance to play with my Peerless watercolors. Given how well this turned out I think I'll probably play around a bit more and maybe make a series of cards.


To start, I taped some watercolor paper down to my craft space. Next I wet my paper to ensure that the paint would spread and blend. I lifted the color from my peerless watercolors with my wet paintbrush. I laid down one color at a time, allowing them to blend where they joined.


Once done, I left my paper to dry. When dry, I stamped this lovely Mama Elephant sentiment with my Versamark watermark ink and heat set some white embossing powder overtop.



Lastly, I diecut my watercolor paper with the SSS Stitched Rectangles die and adhered it with some foam tape to the front of a white card. And there you go - super simple and fun!

This card is being entered into the following Challenges:

  4. Thanks for explaining your process! I did watercolor as well, so it's nice to see another technique for using water color. I'll have to try the watercoloring with heat embossing! TFS :)

  6. I love your card. Saw it on the SS background challenge. I need to try something like that, but I don't know if I have good enough watercolors. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Thanks so much! I'm sure for this technique your watercolors will work just fine. I think the trick is to make sure your watercolor paper is wet before you start applying color so that it blends more easily. You should give it a shot and let me know how it goes! Good luck and thanks for stopping by 😊
