3 Quick Ways To Add Watercolor Details With Ink Pads

By | 02/23/2021

Scrappy Tails Crafts has this fabulous Rose Petals stamp and die set that I have really been enjoying creating with.

I have been in the mood for watercoloring techniques, so I created 3 quick cards using easy watercoloring techniques with my Catherine Pooler ink pads.3 quick watercolor cards with Scrappy Tails Crafts

Catherine Pooler just came out with some new colors of inks and I have been waiting to find time to try them out.  Today  was the day!!

Card 1:

The first card is simply heat embossed in black and then watercolored using several of the new ink colors and a couple of my old favorites!  I just squished the ink onto my craft mat, spritzed with water and applied it to  my heat embossed image on watercolor paper.  I patiently waited for it to dry before adding some splatter to finish it off!

Card 2:

I added water to a piece of watercolor paper using a large flat brush, then I just dropped some of the same colors onto the wet paper and let the water do the work of moving them around.  I heat embossed my image on top of the dried panel and added some black and gold splatter and a sentiment.

Card 3:

I heat embossed the image in golden peach embossing powder onto patterned paper and fussy cut the image out.  I used one of my scraps of watercolor paper to add a blue watercolor wash. Once it dried, I added some splatter and I added the fussy cut image with foam tape.  I used a die cut sentiment from the Slimline Pop Up Box Craft die set to finish off the card.
