Watercolor Diamonds

It’s my honor to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC792) & we’re headed to a UK site called Zabana Jewellery & their Pinterest Board. I was inspired by THIS as my inspiration.

For my card, I die cut a piece of 90# watercolor paper, put it into my Misti & stamped the diamond bg w/ white pigment ink & heat embossed it w/ white powder. When it cooled, I used a lg oval wash brush to wet the bg & a smaller round brush to float in the various colors. After I stamped the greeting, I die cut it w/ a rectangle die then used an angled border die to cut the top & bottom. Here are a few pics I took to show this on the green layer where I matched the cuts.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. This card has me at hello, as they say. Saw this on Pinterest and FB and my jaw dropped open. This is a stunning piece. I so want to get some water colour paints.
