Easy Watercolor Backgrounds

Do you have any stamps in your collection that you just don’t know how to color? Or maybe you’re looking for an easy way to add color to a card, without actually having to color? Try this!

Simply paint a little watercolor onto a panel in roughly the same size and shape as your stamp. If you paint on clear water first, you can achieve a nice wispy look. I like to add concentrated splatter for more interest. After it dries, stamp your image on top and emboss it with white powder. If your sentiment will stand out enough, you can emboss it too. Or you can stamp it in coordinating dye ink like I did with these panels.

This is a great way to create quick and easy cards, without having to actually color. It works for clean and elegant images like the 1 Line Flower I used in today’s cards, as well as intricate images (that would take hours to color). Once your panels are dry, turning them into cards only takes a few minutes. Simply trim them down and pop them up on coordinating card bases with foam tape. Add a few gems for sparkle. I love the way these mini-slimlines turned out, and I always need thank you cards, so these are great to have on hand.
