I was itching to do a watercolor card, I truly love to watercolor, but have mostly spending time copic coloring (which I love as well). I wanted to show that you can use the lovely Catherine Pooler inks to create a watercolor effect on a card very easily.
I applied Catherine Pooler Seafoam Ink to a block quite heavily, spritzed the block with shimmer spray (instead of plain water) and flipped the block over and let it sit on a panel of Tim Holtz watercolor paper for a few minutes (3 or so). The panel shown above is actually a second generation spritzing of the block after removing it from the first watercolor paper panel. I wanted a fairly faint color block and the first panel was quite dark. The second generation “stamping” (without the addition of additional color) was perfect for the card I wanted to make. I then diluted some gold Peerless watercolor with water and gently tapped a brush over the panel that I had loaded with color. It is very faint, but enough for what I wanted.
Meanwhile, while allowing the watercolor paper dry fully, I stamped some images from the Trinity Stamps Winter Botanical stamp set and heat embossed some Wow Under the Sea embossing powder. This is my favorite color of embossing powder that I own!
To finish the card off, I stamped some images from the Trinity Stamps Coffee with Character set and watercolored them with a Zig real brush watercolor pen. Adhering some sequins and sequin cord to the top with Gina K connect glue, and stamping a sentiment from the Trinity Stamps Let Love Grow stamp set finished up the card.
I hope that this card inspires you to pull out your watercolors and paint away! Thank you for stopping by!
