Layered Metallic Watercolor + “Hand Drawn” Accents

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

Hi all! Today I have a card that was so much fun creating! It’s a watercolor card using both traditional watercolors (American Crafts Paper Fashion Watercolors) and FineTec Pearlescent Watercolors.

(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 started out by masking off six squares in a window pane pattern using masking tape. Then I wet each square with water and dropped in watercolors. After letting it dry, I added small areas of gold pearlescent paint.

Small patterns were stamped in three squares using images from the Hello Darling stamp set and then traced over using a white gel pen. I also added a thin lined border to the other squares.

To finish off the card, I cut the Take Care dies four times, stacked the die cuts, and adhered the greeting to the card.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
