Ann got a little crazy last night thinking of a card to make. And then she came up with I’ll call an easy watercolor background card.”

It’s not hard to do. Ann just took her Acrylic Block I (that’s like eye”) and added ink from the ink pads to it. (One at a time and clean it in between colors.)

Then spray the inked up block and lay it down on the Watercolor Paper. Let it sit there a minute so it has enough time to absorb.

Now, if you have the I block, great, but they are no longer carrying that size. A Clear Block F would be a good substitute.

The bottom color looks brown on the screen as my typist is typing this, but it’s Old Olive. and the yellow is Wild Wheat, just like the card base is.

we were surprised how long it took for the watercolor paper to dry. Not long at all. But we wanted to be sure that it was dry before stamping the greeting onto it.

Ann’s not a yellow person, but I think she’s a bit partial to this card because the watercolor background turned out okay. It wasn’t hard, but it could be a bit messy if you’re not careful.

Ann used the Teflon Sheets in the Stamperdog Likes area. It sure did help keep the table top clean, but it didn’t do anything for Ann’s fingernails and hands.

This card is a bit unique in that both the stamp set and the dies are from different bundles, but they’re both only available in our online store.
