Welcome to today’s Sunday Special #15 How to make a water-coloured handmade card
Hi and welcome to another blog post. Today is the 15th Sunday Special and I show you how to make a water-coloured handmade card. I am using Beautiful Moments stamp set (item number 103954).
The main colours I chose are Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose with a whisper white card front.
Today’s card was another one of my classic Make it up as I go kind of cards and I love how it turned out. Using our fabulous Aqua Painters duo pack (Item no 103954) this card was so much easier to make.
Our Fluid 100 water-colour card stock is such a necessity when thinking about doing this type of colouring. Fluid 100 Water-colour Paper is a thick paper designed especially for water-colouring. Cold-pressed, archival cotton paper. Natural white colour with subtle texture. A must for any crafter who likes to colour by painting.
I just had to add some Seaside Spray 1/4″ (6.4 Mm) Metallic Ribbon
Every pretty card should have a little touch of Wink of Stella Glitter. Easy to add sparkle to your projects without the mess. The Wink of Stella Glitter Brush is perfect for writing and adding subtle controlled glitter to stamped images. The brush tip produces thick and thin lines, allowing artistic freedom.

I hope that you enjoyed this project and can take something away from today to try at home. I’ve listed the main products used:Product List
You can find all products in my online shop here:
Cut down a piece of Whisper White Cardstock in half to form an A5 size. Fold in half to give you a card measuring 4 1/8″ x 5 7/8″
Cut a piece of seaside spray cardstock down to 4″ x 5 3/4″
For stamping layer – cut a piece of your Fluid 100 water-colour paper down to 3 7/8 x 5 5/8″
With your Stamparatus for help, stamp your images and sentiments using Stazon Ink onto your water-colour card. You may need to repeat the stamping to get that bold black image.
Add some ink from your ink pads onto the corners of your stampin’ blocks.
Colour your images using your Aqua Painter(s). I used the smaller of the two as the images are relatively normal size. Colour around images too for extra colour.
Add some wink of stella to the girls’ dresses.
Add your ribbon to top layer, with a square knot added after, before adhering your card together.
