Today I am tickled to show you a really simple way to make a stunning 5″ x 7″ flower card – and even though I added some “real” watercolor treats, you can do this with just stamp inks!
Tutorial: Inked Watercolor Lilacs (easy)
I found that Catherine Pooler inks work well for this technique; they do melt out as watercolor, but they don’t “fall apart” (ie wash out) the way sometimes Distress Inks do. But if distress inks are whatcha got, give it a try too, just be careful how much water you add.
Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube and leave comments over there.
Look at all that luscious purple! I did add some blue to it as you saw but its really pretty with just the purple ink. For the green leaves you can also add some green inks – but I don’t have much green ink selection! I used Sage to stamp half the sentiment, and I was wishing I had a stronger green.
Such simple supplies to make such a stunning card, eh?
