Hi friends. I’m back with a very easy watercolor card for Father’s Day, using the Honey Bee Stamps Big Pickup Tailgate Stampset. If you are not a great watercolorist and have trouble coloring within the lines (like me), this technique will save you tons of aggravation. It also uses minimal supplies.
I started by stamping the truck image from Honey Bee Stamps Big Pickup Tailgate Stampset with Versamark Ink onto Canson XL Series Watercolor Pad. Then added Gold Embossing Powder over it and heat set it. I also stamped the sentiment on the license plate and “Happy Father’s Day” from the Lawn Fawn HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY Stampset and heat set them with the same embossing powder.
I used my Kuretake GANSAI TAMBI Watercolor Set to color the image. I love these watercolors. theya re very pigmented and produce beautiful colors. But you can easily use dye inks to watercolor as well. Once dry, I diecut the truck with the coordinating dies. I also cut another truck from the Canson XL Series Watercolor Pad for the back of the car as well as a strip measuring 1″ wide x 3/4″ long and scored it at 1/2″. I adhered the strip to the back and front panels of the card to create the card base.
I left the inside of the card blank.
Thanks for reading this post. I hope you enjoyed and I’ve inspired you to give this easy watercolor card a try for yourself. Leave comments or questions below or feel free to email me.
