Watercoloring to add color to stamping card by designer Patty Folchert

My new favorite technique is watercolor painting; today I am sharing a fun Birthday card for any age using watercolors, a Jillibean Soup stamp set and Jillibean Soup papers.

Make A Wish card by Patty Folchert

I started out with watercolor paper and stamped the balloons with Surfaces black ink (any waterproof ink should work). Then I let the ink dry and chose a cool watercolor palette of purple, blue and green. Then I painted the balloons with the watercolors, the best part is that you don’t even need to stay in the lines! Next I chose a complementary green paper as a mat and attached the dried watercolor piece to it. Then that panel was attached to a plain white card base. Then I added a couple Jillibean Soup Birthday Bisque Peapod diecuts and a “Make a Wish” Sticker. Presto, a quick art inspired card versatile enough for almost anyone.

The watercolor trend is really hot right now and I have really enjoyed learning the fun techniques out there. Have you added watercolor painting to your projects yet? 

Best Wishes,
