The versatile Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! is the perfect companion to your favorite sentiment and image stamps. You’ll be amazed by how often you’ll find yourself grabbing this stamp set!
The watercolor design allows for soft backgrounds, and the sharp edges give a masked off look. Get creative with how you choose to color these stamps! Go for traditional stamping techniques or try out some ombre effects with Sponge Daubers.
For this card, I used the square to fill in color on the square Sentiment tag. I love how beautifully this fills the space, but still has pockets of lighter or no color — I think this adds a lot of depth to the card.
This card came together really quickly thanks to the Designer Paper. I chose one of my quick & easy card sketches, Sketch #9, and the sketch worked perfectly for this Card.
I wanted to use some of my favorite new Designer Paper – You’re A Peach – on this card, not only because it’s my favorite but because it’s on sale thru August 2, 2021. I pulled the color combination directly from the Paper – so fresh & trendy!
Here’s how I made this card. (Don’t forget you can download the free tutorial at the end of this post.)
