Watercolor Technique Sympathy Card


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

Watercolor Technique for Cards


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!
Hello Friends, 

Making Sympathy Cards is tough but this Watercolor Technique is beautiful. Who says Sympathy Cards need to be boring? After completing the watercolor technique, I stamped winter trees from the Winter Woods stamp set to finish my scene.  Then, I layered the whole thing with In Good Taste Designer paper and other fun card elements.

Watercolor Technique for Cards

Spritz watercolor paper to get it damp, then using a water painter swoosh layers of Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry inks.  Hint: be sure to overlap layers of ink.  Keep applying ink until you are satisfied.  Completely dry using heat tool or set aside and come back later.

Next, with your fingers splatter water droplets across your watercolor.  Let sit for a few minutes, then blot up excess water.  Allow to completely dry.

Dip water painter in a bit of Soft Suede ink then flick your painter with your finger to make splatters.

After the watercolor and splatters are completely dry, stamp your winter trees using Early Espresso ink.  Hint:  Stamp using the Stamparatus for a great stamped image.

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz Card Stock.  I cut mine 3-3/4" x 5".
  2. Next, apply Night of Navy in circular motions using a wedge of a sponge.  Be sure to leave a spot of Pear Pizzazz peeking through the sponging.
  3. Using White Chalk Marker sprinkle white dots across your sponged area

To finish the scene I stamped pine trees using the Merry Moose stamp set and Mossy Meadow ink.  Hint: Some of the trees were stamped full strength (ink) and some were stamped at half strength (ink).  My moose was punched from Basic Black card stock using the Moose Punch.  I cut the gold "Wow!" using the Playful Alphabet dies and a Gold Foil Sheet.
