Get vibrant results when you use Stampin Write markers to colour watercolour paper. My friend Leslie did with her fun friends card featuring a fan favourite stamp set, Beautiful You.
I knew you’d want to see it too when she’s got such a super colour combination goin’ on.
Such a simple card to share well wishes with a BFF. Dapper Denim and Crushed Curry are gorgeous together don’t you think? And look how bold her colour is on the textured watercolour paper.
When was the last time you pulled out your Stampin’ Write markers to colour? If you’re like me, you sometimes forget they’re in your toolbox with all the other fun things to colour with. But when you want FAST, SIMPLE and PERFECT colour coordination, they can’t be beat!
OK question for you…how many retiring items did Leslie use on her colourful card?
- Dapper Denim cardstock is the main front panel. And yes, as a 2016-18 In Colour, we’re waving good-bye May 31st and I’m sad ☹️. It’s one of my go-to blues.
- Then she’s coloured our gal’s dancing dress with her Dapper Denim Stampin’ Write marker which comes in a set of the 5 In Colors.
- She stamped in Basic Black Archival ink so she wouldn’t muddy her image once she started to colour.
- She’s also cut out the words from one of the Lovely Words thinlits in Crushed Curry. Just two teeny snips and you can use the words just by themselves like she’s done here.
I’ve used these words quite a lot this past year for more simple cards like this and this. I just love the brush lettering look you can achieve. (plus it’s fun way to “cheat” if you’ve had too much caffeine and your lettering is a bit wobbly 😉).
A few tips to use Stampin Write markers to colour watercolour paper?
- Use a permanent black ink like Basic Black Archival which will stay put once you add any water-based colour, like our Stampin’ Write markers
- Ink your stamp very well
- Use a firm, even pressure to stamp your image onto the textured paper
- Hold your stamp on the paper for a few seconds without rocking it so you have nice clear lines
- Don’t be afraid to colour OUTSIDE the lines – yes, you can and it makes your image look fabulous!
OK, now it’s your turn. Which BFF would you make this card for? Simple, pretty and into the mail in no time, she’ll love opening it up! Here’s everything you need to make it yourself.
