Watercolor Birthday Card

I got the idea for this card from Connie Collins from Constantly Stamping. She made a beautiful watercolor card that I just couldn't pass up. Her's is more detailed then mine but I like the simplicity of it all. The best part was the painting with the Aqua Painter. The relaxing feeling of painting a small piece of art is amazing. 

Another detail I enjoyed was the use of stamping in the background to create a type of boarder. I used the Timeless Textures Stamp Set (140517) for the background. Love the incompleteness of the stamp, gives great focus for the eye to be drawn to the middle of the card. 

All in all I thoroughly enjoyed working on the card. And my girls in my group loved it too. A great Birthday card.

Measurements I used: 
Very Vanilla CS 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  scored at 4 1/4
Basic Black CS  5 1/3 x 3 7/8
Watercolor Paper  5 x 3 3/4

Hope you enjoyed!

  1. Beautiful! I'm not much of a watercolor person because I get a little crazy and overdo it. But I did enjoy this project. Thanks for teaching me!
