Wedding Watercolor Stamped CARD

Watercoloring stationary is a huge trend right now.
I wanted to create a wedding card using watercolors to match this lovely wedding invitation (invitation to the left).  I inked my stamps (Turning A New Leaf-PTI) heavily with water and stamped images onto the wet watercolor paper (wet-on-wet technique).  
Then played around with my aqua painter.


Adding (ink) paint to a wet layer of paint on the paper produces a soft, diffused look as the colors mix.  Being able to predict the results you're going to get working wet-on-wet takes practice, but as this technique can produce spectacular, lively types of cards, paintings, it's well 
worth experimenting with it.

CRAFTERS TIP: when watercoloring your paper can curl!  If you have time leading up to your event – stack all papers under really heavy books/bricks for like a week to flatten them out.   
If you don’t have time ... iron them.
