Marker Watercolour Background

Don’t you just love a quick and easy background to enhance your card making? Marker Watercolour Background is just one such technique, that you need to try.

I’ve used the 2016 – 2018 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers of Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach and Dapper Denim for the background on this card. I added a layer of Sweet Sugarplum behind the Shimmery White background piece and I think it gives the whole card a 3D effect. A bit like those you see in art galleries (not that I’m an artist!!). The Copper Foil Dragonfly and Copper Metallic Thread behind the Dragonfly, just make this card WOW.

Watch how easy it is to do this technique:

  • Card base of Whisper White 21cm x 14.8cm scored and folded at 10.5cm or 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored and folded at 4 1/4″. This is a landscape card.
  • Layer 1 (backing to Watercolor Paper) 5cm x 12cm or 2″ x 4 3/4″
  • Shimmery White A4 Card Stock 4.5cm x 11.5cm or 1 3/4″ x 4 1/2″
  • Scrap of Foil or card stock to cut Dragonflies or other embellishment
  • Metallic Thread – approx. round 4 splayed fingers 4 to 5 times

The 2016 – 2018 Stampin’ Write Markers used on this card were Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy and Peekaboo Peach. They’ve given a more muted tone. Perhaps with less water they’d be more vibrant.
