Simple Watercolour Cards

Hi there Scrapping Clearly fans! Today I am sharing with you some cards that I made at a Scrap Retreat that I recently attended.

It was another top weekend with great company, laughter, and great food.

These cards are really simple to make and I loved playing with the bright colours.

For these cards, I trimmed down three pieces of heavy white card stock to a standard C6 size. I have used black card stock as both a backing and backdrop for these cards. As I really wanted both the colours and the stamps to be hero here.

Here are some photos of each of the handmade cards.

For the cards, I used Jane Davenport Poppy Girl stamps. These were stamped with StazonInk in Jet Black. It is important to use a permanent ink when working with wet media to prevent bleeding of the shaped outlines.

I combined water with Dylusions sprays in Bubblegum Pink and Fresh Lime. I also used Distress Ink in both Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers. This combination of wet media were used for both the background and the flowers.

Next I positioned the prepared flowers over Black Gesso from my stash that I swiped with a hog bristle brush.

For the splatters, I used Colour Blast Colour Spray in Roadhouse and My Mind's Eye enamel dots.

Finally, with a sentiment stamp from a scrappy friend's stash.. sharing is something we tend to do a lot on these retreats.

Oh, and on the black card, I used the gorgeous Pink Fresh Studio Alpha Stickers.

I am pleased with how these cards turned out - be sure to check out the products that I used online.

Thank you for popping by!
