Handmade Cards

Woodware Watercolouring 

I had a lovely stamp set for Christmas and have been waiting for the opportunity to try it out. There is a large floral stamp in the set, and this is something my collection had been lacking. I have a few ideas for techniques where a large stamp is ideal.

For this card, I wanted to try a watercolour stamped look, using various distress ink colours together with water.


How I made this card:

I inked up the stamp with four colours of distress ink in blue shades. I then spritzed the stamp with water before stamping onto watercolour paper. After drying the card with my heat tool, I restamped to define any areas where there was a little too much water.

Using a tag die, I die cut the main part of the image out. I added foam behind the tag so that it would sit higher than the rest of the image.

I trimmed down the watercolour paper to fit an A6 card (but a bit narrower). I added a strip of silver glitter paper along one edge of the card base, then stuck down the watercolour piece. I die cut another tag from silver glitter paper, layering this behind the main tag, at an angle.

I stamped a sentiment and added some sequins.
