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.
