Watercolor Abstract Background With Banana Leaves 3D Embossing Folder

by Aga

Hello, everyone! It’s Aga here today, and I would like to share with you a very simple and fun way to create a watercolor background card using an embossing folder.


I started by running the Banana Leaves 3D Embossing Folder with a watercolor cardstock through my die cutting machine. Next, I used markers from Watercolor Brush Markers – Spring Garden Set to add color to the background. I diluted ink from markers with water for a softer look and better blending.


As a final step, I trimmed my watercolored panel and adhered it to the card base. This is the kind of card that can be used for any occasion, just by adding the right sentiment. I used one from Label Love Stamp Set with Obsidian Pigment Ink.

Thank you for stopping by today!
