Quick and Easy Watercolor Look with a Stamp!

by Laurie Willison

Hey there friends!   It's Laurie here with a quick and easy watercolor card.  This is definitely not a new technique but a great one for simplicity that packs a punch!  Today I am using the Pen Sketch Mandela Stamp Set, along with a little ink and a little water!

To create this card, I grabbed some Altenew Watercolor paper and some Coral Berry Ink.  After loading this beautiful stamp in my Misti, I loaded it up with Coral Berry Ink.  Before stamping it onto the watercolor paper, I lightly misted it with water. When pressed down, I got this beautiful watercolored image.  The image alone would make a gorgeous card front.

To add a bit of interest, I cut the image in 4 pieces and added foam tape to the back of each and then added a sentiment to the bottom corner in Obsidian Black Ink. I spaced them out carefully and added them to an aqua card base.  So simple!

I hope you have enjoyed today's project and feel inspired to try your own quick and simple watercolor designs.  Hope you have a great day!
