Today I want YOU to make a congrats watercolour pencil art card with my photo tutorial. Once you take a peek at how easy this is, I predict you’ll be spritzing up a storm and die cutting all kinds of words and shapes for dramatic cards like this in no time.

WAHzing! Doesn’t it POP? The bold vibrant colours, the touchable texture and the wood star accents make this one stand out card.  Let’s dive in for a closer look.

So did you notice? Here’s ANOTHER card without any stamping. Remember this one and this one too? I’m on a bit of a mission to see how many different looks I can get without opening a stamp pad.

I think it’s striking because there’s so much of the contrasting black card showing. But I couldn’t resist shadowing the word with Dazzling Diamonds paper for some bling! So you know there’s SOMETHING there but not exactly sure what. Lastly I added three different sizes of the Hearts & Stars Accents and a small bit of the beautiful 1/4” Whisper White organza ribbon for even more pizzazz.

How about I show – and tell – you how to make a congrats watercolour pencil art card?
