Mojo Monday Watercolour Card

I'm gearing up to take the Watercolor For Cardmakers class at Online Card Classes that starts May 5th and wanted to practice with my supplies.  I bought a set of 12 watercolour tubes from Michaels and a few brushes and had some fun today painting away.

 This card was based on the sketch over at Mojo Monday this week.

I embossed the Tim Holtz sentiment with clear embossing powder on watercolour paper and then swiped my paint over top.

I used a plastic slide I had from very long ago.... as my element on the left side and placed a paper flower and button coloured with alcohol ink inside.

I found some tie-dyed ribbon and added it along with some green Stickles across my card.

I am really looking forward to learning lots of watercolouring techniques and can't wait for class to start!

Happy Crafting!



  1. I love the energy your card gives. I tried that technique and it didn't work for me. Which embossing powder did you use?

    1. Thanks! I used Stampendous clear embossing powder over watercolour paper, and I did have to blot the letters a bit to remove some of the watercolour, but for the most part it resisted quite well.
