Today I have a watercolour card for you, as it's World Watercolour Month. My birthday card uses the Happiness Abounds stamp set, which was new in the 2022 Annual Catalogue in May.
I've also used a couple of other new Annual Catalogue products: Hues of Happiness DSP, and the Fabulous Frames Dies. My flowers are embossed in white embossing powder onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper, and then water coloured using Water Painters and the ink inside the lid of my Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia ink pads. The leaves are water coloured the same way using Granny Apple Green ink pad.
My base card and frame are basic White cardstock, and I have stamped the sentiment from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Black Stazon onto Basic White as well. I just chopped it in half to keep the dimensions of the card how I wanted. The embellishments I have used are the Polished Pink ones from the 2021-2023 InColor Opal Rounds from the Annual Catalogue.
Stampin' Up! have put together a great technique video showing seven different ways to add colour with watercolour. Links to the base watercolour products used in the video are shown at the bottom of the page.
I hope you like today's card. You can find all of the products I have used in my online store, or the paper copy of the Annual Catalogue. You can either order online, or direct with me via email, phone or text (you can read about three ways to shop with me HERE). When you shop online with me in Australia, and use the monthly Host Code, you also qualify for a small thank you gift mid the month after your purchase. Here's the shop link (individual product links at the end of the post), and this month's host code.
See you back here again soon,
