Watercolour Wedding Card tutorial

I used to love making cards but over the past couple of years, I really struggled to have any motivation to create. However, I've recently been loving the watercolour trend and decided to investigate its card making potential...and I must say, I was impressed with the final result!

Watercolour Wedding Card tutorial

Step by Step

  1. I cut down my paper to 10cm x 10cm to fit onto a 13.5cm x 13.5cm card blank. 
  2. I inked my Happily Ever After stamp with Artiste Pigment Inkpad in Black before stamping it firmly in the centre of the paper.
  3. I sprinkled black embossing powder from Stampendous over the image and used my DoCrafts heat gun to melt it. 
  4. I used Reeves red watercolour paint and Winsor and Newton Permanent Rose watercolour paint to create the background. I dampened the paper lightly, then patted on the watercolour before blending any joins with a clean, wet brush. 
  5. I dried the paper with my heat tool because I'm impatient and stuck it to the card with DoCrafts double sided tape. 
  6. I added the pink heart gem to the corner with a tiny bit of PVA glue. 

Overall, I'm really pleased with the final result and I'm itching to create more watercolour wash crafts!
