Watercolor Scene

I've been facinated by watercolors ever since I started to play with this technique.  This entire card is created with watercolors.  

I started with creating the background using watercolor paper.  My favorite paper is Strathmore cold press 140 lb.  I love that it is textured on one side and smooth on the other.  It's heavy enough to work with lots of water and doesn't pill like some others I've tried.  I used blue and green distress inks to replicate the sky and grass.  Then I sprinkled some water droplets on it for added interest. 

 I stamped the cute bunny, his car and the flowers and colored them with watercolor markers.  I used matching dies to cut them out and then mounted them in the painted background.  

I then watercolored another paper and cut out the rolling clouds using a die.  After stamping the sentiment the card was finished.  

This happy bunny sure makes me smile!  


  1. Takes a steady hand TOR. It's definitely not for me to do but it looks really pretty and so does your new blog.

  2. LOVE watercolor techniques! This card is so cute...just precious!
