Take 2 with Therese: Watercolor Panel 2 Ways + Video!

by Therese Calvird

Hi, it’s Therese and I am back with another edition of Take 2 with Therese.

Today I am sharing 2 cards with watercolor panels.  These are created quite differently, but still achieved a similar look.

Altenew - Precious Peony - Wallpaper Art - Take 2 With Therese (card video) 1

I started by using the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks to create a smooshed background using acetate, you can watch the process in the video linked below.

The floral bouquet is from the Precious Peony Stamp Set.

And the sentiment is from the Delicate Flower Bed Stamp Set, both were stamped in Obsidian Pigment Ink.

Then, I wanted to recreate the watercolor look so I used some Altenew stamps to do this. I used the Coffee with a Splash Stamp Set, Watercolor Frames Stamp Set and the A Splash of Color Stamp Set.

This time I stamped a bouquet using the Wallpaper Art Stamp Set.

Then I heat embossed a sentiment from the Stone Mosaic Stamp Set on some Jet Black Cardstock.

To see how I created these watercolor panels, you can watch my video here or watch it on HD on Youtube.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you were inspired to create your own watercolor panels!

Very pretty cards! You gave me heart palpitations when you didn’t use a magnet to hold down the card front. LOL! I thought the card was a goner and would be smeared for sure. Great job, Therese!

Beautiful water color and faux watercolor background cards!

Sometimes the ‘faux’ is easier than waiting for the ‘paint to dry’ and the loose nature and uncertainty of watercolours lol.

I didn’t think I’d like the splash stamps until I saw how you layered them on the card and now I’ve changed my mind. Enjoyed the video. It was very easy to follow and I’ve wanted to know how to make the outlined and colored in effect since I’ve seen it. I think I can give it a go now.

I have used the splash stamps a lot more than I thought I would, they look especially nice as a very subtle element (lightly stamped, even tone on tone) on a background, such as behind a bouquet of flowers or behind a popped up sentiment. Thanks so much for your lovely visit here today!
