Purple Watercolor Card Set

January 17, 2018

This is a set of cards I made as a gift for Christmas. The ink on these cards didn’t smoosh as well as I expected. However, they still turned out beautiful.



Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began these cards by creating A2 card bases from some water color paper. I used an acrylic block and purple Distress Inks to create all of the backgrounds. I used the smooshing technique.

While the ink was drying, I die cut the letters for Thanks from a scrap of water color paper. I stamped the outlines of the letter on the die cuts in grey ink.

Once the backgrounds were dry, I adhered the die cut letter to the card front in a rectangle–ish shape.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Quinn’s Capital ABCs

Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Quinn’s Capital ABCs

Ink: Simon Says Stamp’s Smoke Ink

Distress Inks in Victorian Velvet, Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord, Wilted Violet, and Seedless Preserves


Hope you enjoyed the cards!
