EASY SHIMMER WATERCOLOR Valentine’s Day Cards

Hi all! So sorry for not posting for a few days. I’m still dealing with back pain so my work time is limited (I can’t sit down for a long period of time). I’ve been working on new stamps and dies for Simon, but that means I haven’t been creating cards. Anyhow, hoping to get back into cardmaking more soon. :)

Today I have two cards with shimmery watercolor backgrounds. I wanted to paint some backgrounds and use FineTec pearlescent watercolors while painting with traditional watercolors. I don’t think I’ve ever tried to use them at the same time so it was interesting to see how they behave.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I used Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors on Arches cold press watercolor paper for the backgrounds, plus the 12 set of FineTec pearlescent watercolors. I turned the backgrounds into cards by using the Love You So stamp set from Concord & 9th, the Lover Shaker die from Pretty Pink Posh, and the Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables dies from Lawn Fawn.

Thanks for stopping by!
