Watercolor Card Designs

Feather Birthday Card Made with Watercolors and Stamps by Grow Creative

My latest card creations designed with ....... yep, watercolors!

I scored a new feather stamp at Michaels for $1...... I love finding stuff like that for so super cheap.  I slathered some watercolors on it and pressed it to the paper to make the design.  It's really easy, you just have to make sure to not use watery paint.  Keep it nice and thick and it turns out looking almost like ink.  Cool!

And these cards are decorated with butterflies punched out of old watercolor reject paintings.  Ones that were not going to get sold or hung up in my house.  So why not recycle them as birthday cards?

And lastly, a fun stripey watercolor card design inspired by my watercolor header designs.  This one makes me happy :)
