Just Sittin’ Here Thinkin’ of You! Watercolor Card

Today I have a quick CAS (that’s Clean And Simple for those who don’t know) watercolor card to share with you:


Papertrey Ink is releasing their new product and has a Create Along With Us release week challenge to create your own version of something their designers have presented. I chose base my card on Nichole Heady’s card, which you can find HERE and is pictured below:


She water colored around the stamped image and then used a white gel pen to add in the stars, so I tried doing the same. I didn’t have any PTI tree stamps, so I used a leaf that does a pretty good job of imitating a tree. : )

Materials used:

  • Papertrey Ink stamp sets: Love You to Pieces Fox; Spiral Bouquet (leaf/tree), On My Couch Additions (sentiment)
  • Strathmore Cold Press Watercolor Paper
  • Papertrey Ink Canyon Clay dye ink
  • Stampin’ Up Garden Green dye ink
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors #64
  • Copic Markers: B21 & C1
  • Craft Smith card
  • Tombow Xtreme permanent adhexive
    • I also used Tombow’s Mono Sand Eraser to get rid of a tiny drop of watercolor that fell on the white background. What a terrific tool!

I’m playing along with the following challenges. Click on the links if you’d like to learn more:
