Today’s card features a technique of watercolour with markers using Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Markers. I haven’t shown a watercolour card on the blog for a long time! The last one I could find was this gorgeous mermaid card.
Have you seen the Meadow dies from Stampin’ Up?
I love them for their versatility. Most do not correspond to a stamped image, which allows you to get creative with how you colour them.
Speaking of colour, you’ll find 10+ simple and creative card ideas using Blackberry Bliss to inspire your next crafting session in the Blog Hop below!
I am joining in with the Art With Heart Team’s Colour Creations Blog Hop with this Blackberry Bliss birthday card.
What you need
The Blackberry Bliss colour from Stampin’ Ups!® Regal colour family is our focus and I colour coordinated with a Fresh Freesia card base and layer. The layer has been decorated with a Soft Succulent and Basic White label. Die cut flowers from the Meadow dies have been water coloured with Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write markers. The card is finished with a retired Blackberry Bliss ribbon.
Watercolour With Markers Card Recipe
It really is an easy card to make. Follow the instructions below.
- Begin with a Fresh Freesia standard card base.
- Cut a 9.5 cm x 13.8 cm Fresh Freesia card stock layer.
- Using the Tailored Tags dies, cut the largest die from Basic White. Adhere to a larger piece of Soft Succulent and trim to shape of label.
- Die cut three of the same flower from the Meadow dies, using watercolour paper. Cut stems to desired lengths.
- Watercolour with markers: Using a Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write marker, randomly swipe colour onto the flower. Use a water painter to brush over the colour, spreading the colour to the tips of the petals, as it bleeds from the water.
- Use a Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write marker to randomly apply colour to the leaves and stem. Repeat with a water painter.
- Allow to dry or use a heat gun to speed up the process.
- Adhere the flowers to the tag.
- Cut a 15 cm length of ribbon and a 20 cm length of ribbon. Adhere the ends of the ribbon to the rear of the Fresh Freesia card front. Tie on the right side.
- Stamp sentiment just above the ribbon.
- Adhere the tag to the card front over the ribbon and then adhere to the card base.
- Complete your card with a stamped sentiment on the inside of your card.
