Technique Tuesday | Watercolour Background

One of my favourite things to do is play with colour. I love pulling inks out of my Colour Caddy and seeing how they work together, look next to each other and compliment each other to make some fabulous projects! Adding water to out Stampin’ Up!® inks is also pretty high up there on my list of favourite techniques at the moment, either using the inks as watercolour or making a colourful mess – I just love it!

Stampin' Up! UK Watercolour background video tutorial

I created this card completely on video – I am trying to remember to turn on the camera when I am playing with inks and paper, you just never know if the card is going to turn into a masterpiece or a complete mess!

Colour is so important in card making, but Stampin’ Up!® make it so simple; with colour families of matching colours and coordinating products that all work together to help you create wonderful cards, and other items too.

So, before I waffle on forever about how much I LOVE Stampin’ Up!’s® colour palate, shall we watch the video tutorial?

See, creating this brightly coloured background is super simple; just four colour of ink and a heap of water. The colours used here are Daffodil Delight, Delightful Dijon, Pumpkin Pie, and Watermelon Wonder. I did need to add some extra Watermelon Wonder as it began is dry pink, but with some extra ink added we succeeded in creating a lovely orange/coral tone for this card.
