Today I’m showing you how to create a simple watercolor background and a couple ways that you can use that background. The stamp set is the beautiful autumn set from the August to December Mini Catalogue. You can pick it up as a bundle with 3 coordinating punches and save 10%. I love the little punches!
I combined several colours that scream fall to me – Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze to create a simple watercolor background. Then stamped some leaves using Soft Suede and punched them out using the coordinating punches. It’s hard to tell but I also added a bit of wink of Stella to give them a bit of shimmer. Check out the video below to see just how easy it is!
This is one of the cards we’ll be making at my September Let’s Get Crafty card class.
