Quick & Easy Watercolor Background

Looking for a quick and easy way to get a beautiful watercolor background? Take a look at this simple card! I’ll show you how easy it is to make your own watercolor background using only a few supplies.

To start your background, you’ll want to add a bit of ink to a clear block. Here, I’ve used a Stampin’ Up E Block. I added ink to the block using my Azure Afternoon ink pad. I just put ink directly on the block.

Once it was good and inked up, I use a water bottle to spray a little bit of water. Protect your workspace with grid paper or a scrap paper, this can get a little messy. I only used to squirts of water and then added a 5¼” by 4″ piece of Basic White to the block. I pressed down until the cardstock soaked up all that ink!

I let my background dry overnight. I then stamped the leaves outline from the Petal Park stamp set in Memento ink. The “thank you” comes from the Charming Sentiments stamp set.

On a scrap piece of Basic White, I stamped the flowers from the Petal Park stamp set in Azure Afternoon. I did a bit of faux watercoloring by using a water painter to move the ink around and give the flowers a bit of color.

I punched the flowers with the coordinating Petal Park Builder Punch. A few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels finish my card.
