Clean + Simple Card: Watercolor Wash with Paradise Palms
Hello friends! This week I'm sharing a fun Watercolor Wash technique to create a pretty background for the clean and simple card, featuring the Paradise Palms bundle. This bundle is only available as a bundle (or stamp set and dies) for a few more days! When the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini catalog retires on June 30th, the bundled price goes away and the stamp set and coordinating dies will be sold separately. To get this bundle before it's gone, please visit my shopping link below. If you'd like to see how I created the pretty background, please check out the VIDEO. Keep reading for a few more details...
This card was easy and fun to create. I love to use products with a tropical theme--it's like being on a little vacation! For this sweet card I cut a 3x4 panel of 100 Fluid watercolor paper and used my broad Water Painter to do to the watercolor wash technique. I used Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay as the colors in the wash. To create the two-tone palm trees, I used Stampin' Write markers in Garden Green and Soft Suede. I used the coordinating dies and my Mini Stampin' Cut + Emboss machine to cut out the palm trees. The sun was stamped using Mango Melody ink and the sentiment was stamped using Soft Suede ink. I embellished with a little bow of Linen Thread. The background layer panel on the card was created with the *new* Quatrefoil Tile embossing folder--- a new favorite of mine because of it's versatility and beauty. Love this one!!
Here is an additional card that I shared on the video to show you how you can create a background scene for your palm trees by using Sahara Sand ink for sand, Coastal Cabana for water and Daffodil Delight for Sunrise/Sunset sky in your watercolor wash.
I hope you enjoyed the card(s) and the watercolor wash technique I shared today. If you'd like to pick up this bundle before the 10% savings is gone, please visit my SHOP.
I'll be sharing additional watercolor techniques all month long in July, in celebration of World Watercoloring Month!! (where do they come up with these celebrations?!? Hahaha). Until next time... Kris
