cards, Watercolour

Stenciled Watercolour Background

Hi Creative Ones,

I’ve been experimenting recently with watercolour. I enjoy what a forgiving medium it is. Even my mistakes turn out beautifully. I made two Congratulations “Wedding” cards using watercolour and make – shift stencils. Enjoy these washes of watercolour.

For Card #1

I watercoloured some hearts on Stathmore watercolour paper ensuring that each heart had 2 colours. For the shape of the heart, I used a heart shaped chipboard sticker sheet after the sticker was removed.


I sprinkled gold Speedball ink on top of the hearts. I had bought mine at Screen Art and Printing, one of my favourite supply stores in Jamaica! In my internet search, I only found an extremely expensive alternative on Amazon which I’m not even going to link. Thankfully, you can just use acrylic paint for this and the effect will be similar.

I then used this Simon Says Stamp Congratulations stamp with Versamark ink and WOW gold embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment.


I attached the sentiment by folding at the edges and adhering them to the back of the watercolour sheet. I then attached the finished sheet to a red card base.

The finished card measures 4.5 x 5.5.

For Card #2


Using a similar flower stencil, I watercoloured using only shades of green for this card. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and placed a heart from My Mind’s Eye Jubilee chipboard stickers.


To mount the card I cut two pieces of craft foam that were a bit smaller than my panel and adhered them together and to the card base.

That’s it!
