My Kind of Card – Sepia Watercolour

Sepia Watercolour card (1)

I love this fabulous technique.  This is the sort of thing that I love to do i.e., create collages. Teaching this to my class today was a bit of a challenge as it was something completely different for them.

There are several techniques involved in the make up of this card.  We first covered the watercolour paper in water and added Soft suede ink to achieve our first layer.  It’s amazing how everyone got a slightly different look to their base. We dried this off thoroughly before starting the stamping.

The flower stamp was added with Stazon Ink and allowed to dry before little bits of the petals were lightened by  using bleach and a small paint brush to add highlights to the flowers.

The greeting at the bottom was Versamarked and then heat set.  Other stamped elements were added randomly (in an artistic way!)  with Memento Ink, stamped off once or twice depending on the depth of colour desired.. A few Versamarked swirls were heat set adding to the white elements on the card.

I will definitely be trying this again with more of my stamp sets.  Thank you for stopping by.

  1. Gorgeous, as always! I love this kind of look but am hopeless at it. Maybe I need to try again. Your class must have been so proud of themselves!
