Watercolor Wash Background Blog Hop

Yes!  It's another blog hop :)  I love doing these.  I stay motivated and get to see lots of cool things that everyone else does too!  I did a watercolor wash technique...which is super easy!!!  Seriously...almost fail proof.

Oh so pretty!  For my background I used Highland Heather, Magenta Madness, and Night of Navy.  I do think on my sample, I did use Gorgeous Grape but both look amazing!  For this technique you definitely have to use our FLUID 100 WATERCOLOR PAPER.  This paper is thick.  And I know, I have used other watercolor paper, and this is the best.  It doesn't curl up and is very sturdy when wet.

A couple things to note, you will start with a whole wash over the whole piece of paper.  Then add your color.  I like to do lightest to darkest but to each their own.   Check out my YouTube video below!

I hope you enjoyed that video to show you how easy this technique is.  Don't forget to subscribe to see other videos and get notifications for when I add videos!

Here is another card using the wash technique.  Instead of adding colors all over, I just added it to the bottom, then the middle, and the top.  Super duper easy!  Then I stamped in StazOn Black right over the top of the amazing hues.

If my 9 year old niece Lilly can do watercoloring, you can too.  I need to have her send me a picture of her finished cards cause these hearts she's doing turned out amazing!

SOME ITEMS used not listed for the first card are:  Floating and Fluttering Stamp Set with Dies and Heal Your Heart which is a FREE SAB STAMP SET ($50 order)
