For some of the cards, I just stamped directly on the card.  Some of the patterns need nothing more than a beautiful sentiment.  The sentiment and images came from the Happy Watercolor stamp set and the Peaceful Petals set.

Keeping it simple with another fabulous sentiment from the Perfect Pennants stamp set stamped in Marina Mist.

On other cards, I added some embellishments like the Crushed Curry seam binding or the rhinestones.  The sentiment is from the Another Thank You Photopolymer stamp set.

Finally, I actually did watercolor on some of the cards as well.   I used two different techniques on these cards.  For these, I used the Aqua Painter and actually colored in my images with the Aqua Painter brush and my ink pads.

For this final card, I used a technique that allows me to color directly on the stamp with my Stampin’ Write Markers and then spritz it with water.  This is so quick and simple!6 watercolor card ideas
