Watercoloring With Amazing Life...

Do you like to watercolor?  I totally love it.  It's such a fun & easy way to add color to projects...and it's so much fun to do! Total win-win, right?!  😀  If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram (Design With Ink) saw a sneak peek of some watercoloring I was working on the other day.  Well here is the finished card that I made...

Colors: Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Ink Pads: Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers Whisper White, Watercolor paper, Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Amazing Life
Tools: Big Shot, Sparkle Embossing Folder, Heat Tool
Accessories: Colored Doilies, Gold Embossing Powder, Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins

I have to admit this card just makes me so happy.  I love the white with pops of color.  And in case you missed my social media post about the process...this is how I did the watercoloring for this card:

I used Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody, & Melon Mambo inks.   Smoosh the lid into the ink pad before you open it.  Then use an Aqua Painter filled with water to mix a little water into the ink & add your color (starting with the lightest color first) to the watercolor paper.  You can emboss a greeting or images onto the watercolor paper first if you want, like I did here.  Then after all my colors are added, I spritzed the paper with water to help the colors blend a little.  There are lots of different ways to do this process, but that's how I did it for these cards.  I love how they all look so different...

Then look at the fun finished cards:

And here are some pics of the details:

This stamp set, Amazing Life, is one of my faves in Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Catalog.   AND...if you purchase it in the bundle (with the FABULOUS Rectangle Stitched Framelits!!!) you get a FREE Sale-A-Bration item--like the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper that I used on this card.  Another win-win!!  😀

One last look at the card:

Let me know if you have any questions!  Hope you enjoy!  Thanks so much for visiting!
