While I love to water color, I also love to make water color backgrounds…just free form swaths of color…then stamp on top of them. I love the random patterns of color I get and how they look with the images on top. A lot of times when I’m making water color backgrounds, I’ll make an extra, or two, and stash them away. This is one of those extras. I don’t even remember when I did it. It’s basically just large bands in different colors. After I decided where I wanted the image and stamped it, and added some highlights with a white gel pen.

The frame was die cut with a large oval then I used a Japanese screw punch with the smallest bit I have to punch the holes all around the edge. The greeting was stamped underneath to finish my 4.25 x 5.50 card.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check out all of the Watercolored Wonders from the Serendipity Design Team!

  • I love your watercoloured background, so eye catching! Beautiful!

  • Julie I would never have thought to watercolor like this ….it’s gorgeous! What a beautiful card! I cannot wait to try this sometime. It’s 3:30 am and I am going to try this right now. Love your card.

  • Karen Amidon:

    Your card is great, Julie! Love the way you used your watercolors in the background. Beautiful!

  • Shona:

    What an awesome background. The image goes so well with the colors you used – sort of Tex-Mex! Love it!

  • Hi Julie! I love your take on the challenge and those bright bold stripes of color!

  • Miriam N:

    Love how you watercolored the background instead of the pots! Very unique and great colors Julie.

  • Pat Jandacek:

    Free-form watercolor backgrounds are a great idea, especially with this example. I had to read the details to find out if the piercing around the oval was part of the die – I thought maybe there was a die I didn’t have yet and don’t want that to happen, lol! You’re very patient but it really pays off…it adds so much to the oval.

  • curt:

    Your watercolor background is absolutely gorgeous. The image you used on top of it is just awesome! Best, Curt

Your comments are so appreciated!
