Hello crafty peers!
Today, I wanted to share this simple yet beautiful card, done in a very simple watercolour style that really takes no time, and this Sunflower stamp is ideal for this technique.
Here are the steps:
- You’ll need a fine tip watercolour marker. Watercolour paper or whichever paper suitable for the markers of your choice.
- Trim your paper to the size of a mini slimline card. Mine was 3.5 X 6.5”
- Stamp the image around the edges of your paper. I stamped 3 times.
- Add white embossing powder and heat set.
- Select your colours and add random strokes on the petals. You don’t have to be precise but try not to go over the embossing line. I went for dark and medium yellow, and a medium oatmeal for the flower petals. Two different greens for the leaves and a medium brown for the centre of the flowers.
- Using a small spray bottle, spray some water right on the flowers. Start with little water, add more if you need.
- You’ll notice the colours will start blending on their own. Do not tilt the paper. Leave the water to dry on its own. If there are big puddles, try to absorb the water with a paper towel.
- I used the Mini Slimline Small Hearts Cover die set to trim the panel again.
- Stamp the sentiment from the Simply Hi set, add gold embossing powder and heat set it. The second part of the sentiment is from the same set and it was stamped on black cardstock on white embossing powder.
- Set the main panel on a mini slimline cardbase.
- Add a few Gold Sparkle Crystals to finish the card.
I really like how subtle this card is. This easy watercolour technique gives an organic look and is very versatile. I hope you give it a try.
