Watercolor Card using Stamped Images with May Sukyong Park

Watercolor Card using Stamped Images with May Sukyong Park

Hi, crafty friends! It's May here with a fun watercolor card featuring the Dainty Botanicals Stamp Set. I’ve wanted to give this technique a try for a long time, and I extremely love how my card turned out. 

I started by adhering a couple images from the Dainty Botanicals Stamp Set to the door of my MISTI stamping tool. Then I applied some Tim Holtz distress ink on my stamps, spritzed a little bit of water over my stamps using a sprayer, stamped the images on my A2 size watercolor paper, and dried the paper with a heat tool.

I repeated the same process until I created a field of wildflowers along the bottom of my panel. FYI, here is the list of Tim Holtz distress ink I used for stamping: Peacock FeathersMustard SeedWorn LipstickMowed LawnWild HoneySeedless PreservesShaded Lilac.

Next, I added some splatters using Tim Holtz distress ink and Ranger Perfect Pearls Gold on to the entire background of my panel. I also added some dots on my images using Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew to add interest.

I cut my panel into 4″x5.25″ and mounted it on to A2 size side folding white card base with 3M foam tape to give dimension. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Bird With Flowers Stamp Set with black ink in the middle of my card front.

I stamped the second sentiment from the Word Series: Thanks Stamp Set on a piece of black cardstock with embossing ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

I finished off my card by mounting my sentiment strip banner on the card front using 3M foam tape.

That’s all for today. Thanks so much for stopping by today. Happy crafting!

I have not worked with water colors that often, but it amazes me how easy it looks and the effects you get with the water colors.
