Simple Morning Glory Watercolored Cards


three zig mgHello, Effie here today with a video and three SUPER simple watercolored cards created using our Morning Glory Garden background stamp.  In my video, I show you how I made the center card from start to finish but I also show you some of the watercoloring for the other two just to show the variety of colors you can use to get different looks using the same stamp and technique.

These are probably the most effortless cards I’ve ever made.  I heat embossed my A2 sized watercolor panel with silver glitter, gold glitter and white embossing powder.  Then I literally scribbled two to three different zig markers over each floral.  I put down the darker color towards the centers of the morning glories and the lighter hues towards the edges of the petals. Then I put down two shades of green for the leaves.


After I finished putting down all of my color, I sprayed the cardstock down with some water.  This blended all of the colors together within the embossed channels of my panel.  The result: GORGEOUSNESS!

After the panels dried, I white heat embossed the sentiments from our Timeless Icons set and adhered the strips onto the panels.  Next, I cut down a some heavy weight cardstock to create a side folding A2 cardbase.  Then I put down a thin strip of silver glitter, gold glitter and silver foil tape along the side of the cardbase leaving a strip of the black card stock at the edge. The cards were complete once I adhered the panel onto the base.

Each card took just a few minutes to make (minus the drying time).  You can create several of these for different occasions and even make gift sets to give away.  This technique works beautifully with our other Garden Background stamps (Morning GloryPeony and Rose).

Thanks for stopping by today!!
