Helping Me Grow is growing on me

Helping Me Grow Watercolor Card

I think that what I love about adding water to cards is that no two are the same. The water takes over and adds its own unique imprint to the card.

No matter how many you make each card is just a little different . There is a certain excitement in knowing that the final product is just a bit beyond your control. You are taking a chance with the finished image by allowing an element to take over and define the end result. Let’s just call it stamping drama. And it’s really the only drama I’m looking for in my day.

To create this card I coloured directly onto the stamp with Island Indigo and Wild Wasabi markers and then stamped onto Shimmery White card stock. I then spritz water onto the card to add the watercolour effect. it’s best to spritz lightly and allow the water to work its magic for a few moments. You can always add more water but you can’t fix the puddly mess. Ask me how I know.

Once the Helping Me Grow stamp set image has dried completely, it’s time to put the card together. To embellish, I used the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack and Everyday Chic Designer Washi Tape.

Give watercolor a chance today and see what you can create.
