Hello! It’s Kari here again today with an Easy Fall Watercolor slimline card. Have you ever had trouble making a perfect watercolor background for a card? Well, today I’m going to show you the EASIEST way to get a perfect watercolor backdrop! It’s a favorite technique of mine.

I’m using the Slimline Splashes stamp set together with the Thankful Word Collage stamp set to create a perfect Fall Watercolor slimline card.

I’m so excited to share this card, because I know you will LOVE creating watercolor backgrounds with this set!

For all the details, watch the video below or in HD on YouTube:

I love the Thankful Word Collage stamp set so much. It’s sized for a slimline, but can also be used on a regular card-size A2, or even a 5×7! So versatile.

For my card, I first stamped on the Slimline Splash using Distress ink and a mist of water. I found I get the best results when I use watercolor paper for this.

Then I gold heat embossed the Thankful word collage right over the top. Be sure to let your watercolor background dry COMPLETELY before doing this, or you’ll get embossing powder sticking everywhere. 🙂

I used the “Thanks” sentiment for the center portion that is blank…and sized perfectly to fit that sentiment!

Those leaves are from the Sketched Peony set and they are beautiful! I did not use the flowers from this set for today’s card, but I absolutely cannot WAIT to ink those up as well.

I stamped the leaves onto the English Mustard Cardstock and gold heat embossed them. Then I added color using Distress Oxides and some finger daubers. So easy to add fall colors right to the image this way! I popped up the leaves with foam tape and finished it all off with gold metallic sequins.

I hope you enjoyed this easy fall watercolor slimline card project today and that you’ll give it a try! Be sure to tag me and Maker Forte in your posts! I’ll be back soon with more card shares. Happy Creating!
