Watercoloured Background

Watercoloured background

There is a new catalog from Penny Black out today. Pop on over to the Penny Black blog this week to check out the new stamps and maybe win some too. I am featuring one of the new background stamps, Roman Surround, in my card today with another watercolour method.

In yesterday’s card I wet the watercolour paper first before stamping. For this card I embossed the background image first and then wet the watercolour paper before adding and blending pinks, blues and purples. My inspiration came from this lovely card by Jennifer McGuire.  Once again I was so happy with the background that I added very little, casing Jennifer’s layout to make a birthday card.


Stamps: Flourish Birthday, Roman Surround(PB)
Ink: Versamark (Tsukineko)
Also: white and clear embossing powder, Faber Castell watercolour pencils, grosgrain ribbon
Cardstock: Purple Mountain mix & match cardstock

    Another gorgeous card, Heather! The watercoloured background is stunning, and your white-embossed sentiment is a perfect complement.
