Watercolour Week | Negative Space Watercolouring

I hope you are having a great week! today is my last day off work, back to the grind-stone tomorrow

Last weekend I headed to Telford for Stampin’ Up!® On Stage Local (and saw the awesome new annual catalogue!) and Team Training on Sunday where I provided a whole table of Watercolour inspiration! Most of the cards I shared were cards you guys have already seen, but I did make a few new ones – including this card

Crazy About You Watercolour negative space Hello Card using Stampin' Up! UK products

This card is super simple to make I promise! I am going to start writing the card measurements on my blog posts, I listened to another demonstrator (sorry I can’t remember who it was) on Saturday talk about making blog posts easy for readers to re-create the projects. This is something I have been trying to work out for a while. I use the same sized card quite often, but will try and remember to post the sizes – especially when I’m using odd sizes or doing fancy folds!

Hello you thinlits from Stampin' Up!

Ok, so this card uses the Hello You thinlits dies, die cut from Thick Whisper White card stock. I found a piece of scrap card stock (also Thick Whisper White) that was bigger than the die cut ‘Hello’ and used the Watercolour Wash technique that I shared on Monday to create a rainbow of colour.

The card is then a simple case of layering and re-assembling the ‘Hello’. I used Dimensionals for the larger pieces, but the little dot in the ‘O’ required a ball of Glue Dot, you can see it slightly, but it’s clear and I’m pretty sure your wouldn’t notice it without looking for it!

Card Measurements:

Card Base – (Half A4 folded in half) 21 x 14.85 cm, scored on the long side at 10.5 cm

Card Layer – 10 x 14.2 cm
