Watercolor Wreath – stamping with Zigs!

Hello, everyone! Hope all is well!

I can’t believe today is Day29 (what??!!!) of Kathy’s 30day Coloring Challenge already! I’m bit bummed out that I’ve been so busy this month and missed a lot of days. 😦 I was determined to create something, but I didn’t have a lot of energy to create (It’s been a long week!). Sooooo I decided to do something simple, the watercolor stamping technique! Stamping with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers is one of my favorite way to create a simple and quick watercolored cards. The Ton Stamp’s Watercolor Wreath stamp set is perfect for this technique, so that’s what I went with!

Here’s the card!


I grabbed bunch of Zig markers in pastel hues and scribbled them on the stamps. I spritzed some water on them and stamped right onto the watercolor cardstock. I used my Mini Misti stamping tool to make the stamping easier. I moved the pigment around tad bit and I heat set the images with the heat tool. Then, I die cut the images using the Coordinating Dies.

Next, I went ahead and made the background panel. I scribbled light pink Zig marker and gave a good wash of water so it’d blend out softly across the panel. I heat set the panel and die cut it out using the largest die from The Ton’s Small Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the background panel on mint color A2 card base and adhered the die cut images. I popped up the wreath with foam tape. I created a sentiment banner using the images from The Ton’s Basic Banners stamp set. I stamped the banner in Ballet Slippers Dye ink and the sentiment with Amber Citrine Dye ink and die cut it out with the Coordinating Die.


I dressed up the card with some Mix Dew Drops, My Tutu sequins, and Fairy Pink Sparkling Clear Sequins and the card was complete!

Hope you enjoyed today’s card! TGIF and thank you for stopping by! Happy crafting!
