Watercolor World
It’s never been easier to color your world! Start with the Watercolor World Stamp and add the colors of your choice. The relaxed watercolor style lends itself beautifully to a variety of coloring techniques. Try inking the stamp in multiple colors using Classic Stampin’ Ink and Sponge Daubers or Stampin’ Write Markers. This large stamp covers the front of a standard-size card—all you need to do is stamp once and you have a card! If you want to do more, choose a favorite sentiment from another stamp set and customize your card for birthdays, thanks, thinking of you—whatever occasion comes up!

Let’s Create

  1. Affix all stamps to Acrylic Blocks.
  2. Fold the Card Base in half using a Bone Folder to sharpen the crease.
  3. Stamp the Watercolor World stamp on the the Fluid 100 watercolor paper in Versamark ink. Sprink with white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
  4. Press a spare block onto Bubble Bath ink. Use a Water Painter to add a few drops of water to the ink on the block, dip the Water Painter into the diluted ink and spread color onto the background of the Fluid 100 paper. It’s OK to paint right over the embossed image, just use a tissue or paper towel to lift any ink off the embossed image. Let it dry a bit and then repeat with Berry Burst and Blackberry Bliss ink until you have the desired look. Allow to dry between colors.
  5. Wrap ribbon around the watercolored panel and tie a bow. Secure with a Mini Glue dot, if needed.
  6. Stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink, trim to size and attach with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  7. Sprinkle on the gems.
  8. Stamp and decorate the 4″ h x 5 1/4″ w for inside and attach with Stampin’ Seal.
  9. Decorate your envelope.
  10. So pretty! Now send it to someone special.
