Today I’m going to show you how to create a watercolor wash in 3 quick steps with just a few basic supplies. If you’ve ever seen greeting cards with a watercolor wash as the background and wondered how to create that look then you’ll be pleased with today’s video! It’s an easy process.


We are using one of my favorite new bundles in the catalog called Sailing Home.  There is a whole suite of beautiful coordinating products on pages 144-146 of the new 2019-2020 Annual Stampin’ Up! catalog.

I have been stamping like crazy, and in the video I actually show 25 different cards I have made with this suite of products!  YES, 25 CARDS WITH SAILING HOME!


Create a Watercolor Wash + Sneak Peak at a BUNCH of Cards

The video is really to teach you how to create a watercolor wash, but that would be boring on its’ own, so make sure to watch for those instructions plus several other fun tips (like how to save paper) and also 25 different cards that I threw into this one video!
