how to video _ watercoloring handmade cardHello, everyone! It's May here today to share a watercolor card that I made using the Oriental Orchid stamp set.

how to video _ watercoloring handmade cardIf you follow me on Instagram, you may already know that I'm into watercoloring these days. I'm experimenting with all different types of watercolor paper and watercolor mediums, and I can't stop watercoloring even though I'm still not good enough to show off.

How to Make a Watercolor Card using Oriental Orchid 

  1. Stamp the outline images from Oriental Orchid with embossing ink and heat emboss them using white embossing powder.
  2. Watercolor the images using Peerless Watercolors and die cut them with the Oriental Orchid die set.
  3. Heat emboss the sentiment from Oriental Orchid with white embossing powder and ink the color using Distress Ink Twisted Citron and blending tool.
  4. Die cut the frame out of white cardstock using Scallop Frame die and adhere it on the card front using foam tape.
  5. Adhere the flower die cuts around bottom of the frame using foam tape and glue dots.
  6. Finish off the card with Sparkling Clear sequins.

May, you don’t give yourself enough credit. Your card is beautiful, not sure why you say your water coloring isn’t good enough to show because that simply isn’t true. I love what you did and I thinking it’s very beautiful. Keep doing what you love and don’t be so hard on yourself.

Thank you so much for your encouragement, Tess. Yes, that’s the problem that I’m so hard on myself. :( But your sweet words make me feel more confident with my watercoloring.

I have no idea why May thinks she’s not good with watercolors yet. She’ s not just good, she’s excellent. This card is proof of that…it’s spectacular. Wonderful video, as well.

Oh May, this card is so lovely. you watercolor so so well. i loved watching you arrange the flowers. You make it look so easy when you mask off the middle of the card. I was wondering if you could tell me what the little tray is, with the pad in it, that you use to pour your sequins in. i would love to get one. hugs, treen

Thank you for your sweet words, Katrine. The tray is not special. I just put a sheet of paper inside the plastic tray. That’s it! :)

Oh wow May, this card is just stunning!!! And I have to ask, is that little smiley face on your right hand a tattoo or do you just draw that on for every video?

May Park March 31, 2016 - 01:37

Your question is the proof that you watched my video! :) Yes, I draw the smiley face on my hand using a eyeliner. Hehe…
