Watercolor Week- Day One

Hello. I've been posting many cards using watercolor lately because I took the Watercolor for Card Makers Class from Online Card Classes. I'm still going through some of the lessons and have many cards piling up so I thought it would be fun to do a watercolor week on my blog. So every day this week you will find a new card featuring watercolor techniques.

For today's card, I was inspired to stamp with watercolor. I also wanted to challenge myself and make a masculine card, so I went with a blue, orange, and yellow color scheme...

To create my pattern, I started with a chevron stamp from Studio Calico and inked it with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and then spritzed it with water before stamping on watercolor cardstock. I repeated this step with Squeezed Lemonade and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I love the "messy", watercolor look it creates...
To finish off the card, I stamped the happy birthday sentiment from Studio Calico in black ink and then mounted it on a black card base. Super simple.

I hope I've inspired you to create some Watercolor Stamping. Have a great Monday and see you tomorrow!
