Watercolor Background Easel Card

Create a lovely watercolored background easel card with the Textured Floral stamp set and dies. Start with some watercolor paper and use a Water Painter to brush water all over the paper. Then little bit by little bit add some drops of Pool Party ink on the paper and brush to fill the whole paper, but let the water do the work for the best results. Set that aside to dry.

Ink, spritz with water, and then stamp the leaves and flowers on to Watercolor Paper. Use a Water Painter to add some Fresh Freesia to the flowers. Stamp the middles with Gorgeous Gray ink. Then use a 2″ x 4″ piece of Watercolor Paper to create a Garden Green watercolor wash to cut the leaves from.

Stamp the sentiment in Pool Party on a label cut out from the All That Dies and adhere with dimensionals to stop the top of the card and create the easel. Arrange and adhere flowers and leaves. Then add some of those pretty Glossy Dots!
