Beauty of Friendship Watercolor Background

The tree canopy stamp from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set makes a pretty, soft background and then use the stamp set to complete the card.

I would suggest watching my Watercolor Background Technique Video to see how this card is made, but here are some quick instructions:

  1. Spritz a 3 1/2″ x 5″ piece of watercolor paper with water. It should be wet but not have any pools of water sitting on the surface.
  2. Ink up the smaller large tree canopy stamp from the Beauty of Friendship and stamp onto the wet paper. The ink will diffuse with the water creating a unique soft, swirly background.
  3. Use a blue ink for the top (sky) and a green ink for the bottom (forest).
  4. After the piece is completely dry, stamp the greeting and tree image.
  5. Layer onto a 3 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Cardstock.
  6. Wrap a piece of ribbon around the layer and tie with a knot.
  7. If desired put a 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ strip of designer paper along the edge to ‘fill in the space’, and adhere everything to the. card front.

The Soft Succulent card base is a bit dark so I added a 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of Basic White to the inside and stamped the greeting with Evening Evergreen. I’m really loving these new green inks! Then I added a scrap of the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.
