Let’s make a simple watercolor card that’s cheerful and quick! This easy, new watercoloring technique will dramatically change the look of the stamped images on your card.

I just love these tulip stamps and combining it with this watercolor technique really gives a wow factor!  You are going to want to grab your Timeless Tulip stamp set and an AquaPainter and give this a try!!!


It is absolutely stunning how much a little bit of water can change the look of a stamped image.  Give this short video a watch and see what I did with my AquaPainter.

Simple Watercolor Card | Video Tutorial

I’m telling ya…you NEED these water color card ideas! These are some of the most beautiful greetings you’ll make with such a simple watercolor card technique!

Once I starting playing with the AquaPainter and my stamped images, I just could not stop.  I think my watercolor artist friend would be quite proud of me.  Just look at the difference.  The tulip on the left is just stamped, the ones on the right were stamped with the exact same ink and just gone over with an AquaPainter.  Easy Peasy!  You just have to give it a try.


I only used 2 inks–Melon Mambo and Old Olive.  Oh, and of course Black.  If you follow me, you know that most of the time I like my greetings in black so that they really pop.


Card Recipe:

  • Old Olive:  11″ x 4 1/4″
  • Old Olive Designer Series Paper:  4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Watercolor Paper:  3″ x 4 1/2″
  • Basic Black:  3 1/8″ x 4 5/8″
