Watercoloring is really popular right now in papercrafting, and I finally jumped on the bandwagon 😉 As soon as I saw this “I love Art” cut file from Wilna Furstenberg, I thought of my artist cousin, and I knew I had to make her a card using it. I knew I wanted to cut it from white cardstock, and I thought a “puddle” of watercolor behind it would be pretty and appropriate!
I cut down some watercolor paper to the size of my card front and wet it with plain water, then dropped in color using my daughter’s watercolor set(!). I was so pleased to see the vibrancy of the colors!
Because I wanted the die cut and the watercoloring to be the star of the card, I simply mounted the watercolor paper panel to a coordinating mat and adhered it to the front of my card.
Now that I’ve dipped in my toe, I want to do more with watercolors!
