Watercolour Greetings Cards are my new Favourite Thing

I’ve not made lots of cards recently.

But the majority of cards I’ve made, I’ve used watercolours.

It all started last year when I started playing with the watercolours I’d purchased a year previously. I realised I could use them to make some pretty unique watercolour greetings cards.

At Christmas, I purchased some beautiful shimmery watercolours from Etsy.* I used these to create some similar cards for Christmas.

I also treated myself to some new watercolour brushes from Betty Hayways. Using this after using cheap watercolour brushes previously was a revelation. It made painting so much nicer and easier! I finished off the card with a new stamp, from Skull and Cross Buns.* I used some silver embossing powder to really make this card pop.

During lockdown, I obviously had a lot of spare time, so I got the watercolours out again.

My favourites are the balloons. I painted diagonal stripes on a large piece of watercolour card and then cut out the shapes using my Silhouette. The mix of colours created some nice effects on the balloons.

This final one I created with the same shimmery watercolours from Christmas and another stamp from Skull and Cross Buns.*

I’m really enjoying incorporating watercolours into my cards.
