Simple Watercolor Card - STAMPtember Release

Today I made a card using the Festive Trees stamp set from Simon Says Stamp’s STAMPtember Release.


I started out with a piece of Canson watercolor paper. I stamped the tree made out of triangles from the stamp set three times across the paper using my MISTI tool and Versamark ink. I embossed them with a gold embossing powder.


I taped the Canson panel onto a board so that I could watercolor it with minimal warping. I used my Arteza Real Brush Pens to do the watercoloring. I used the colors Pale Green, Fresh Green, and Forest Green. I did a messy watercolor look across the page and darkened the areas where the trees are. I used my ATG gun to adhere my watercolored panel onto a Neenah Desert Storm card base.


I stamped a sentiment onto some Gina K Tranquil Teal card stock with Versamark ink. I embossed it with the same gold embossing powder that I used on the background. I popped up my sentiment strip onto the card with some foam tape. The sentiment says “Wishing you joy at Christmas.”


To finish up the card I added a few white and clear sequins using Gina K Connect glue. I also went over the sentiment strip with a Wink of Stella glitter brush.
