Congrats Card with Stamped Background & Faux Watercoloring

by May Sukyong Park

Alenew Watercolor Card May Park 1Hi, crafty friends! It's May here with a fun watercolor card that I created with the Cake Love stamp set. I'm a big fan of stamped background as you may already know.

Alenew Watercolor Card May Park 5This time I made my stamped background to the next level by stamping several words on the background and adding black dots between the images.

Alenew Watercolor Card May Park 3Here is how I created my card. I started by stamping the images from the Cake Love stamp set with black permanent ink on a A2 size watercolor paper.

Then I stamped the words from the Layered Letters AFG stamp set and the holly berries images from the Vintage Teacup stamp set to fill in the gap.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sentiments & Quotes stamp set with watermark ink, heat embossed with Pure White Crisp embossing powder on a piece of black cardstock, and mounted my sentiment banner on the card front using foam tape.

That’s all for today. Hope you enjoyed my card. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a fabulous weekend!
