I love a good twofer card design. Watercolor and a hand-lettered die are the perfect combination to get 2 cards from one design.

Easy Watercolor Backgrounds

These cards are perfect for your watercolor paper scraps. I trimmed my Saunders Waterford scraps down to size, but you could also tear them for a more rustic look.

I used Letter Sparrow handmade watercolor paint for these cards. Using the wet on wet technique, I blended Paris Green, Bronze, and Caput Mortem on the first card panel. See the video for details and tips.

CAS Watercolor + Hand-lettered Die cards

I love it when sentiment dies come with a shadow die like this one!! Curious Metallic Poison Ivory cardstock was used for the shadow. I drew a simple border with a Sepia Sakura Micron PN pen.

I popped up the sentiment panels, added a smattering of Nuvo drops and called these two cards done.

CAS Watercolor Gradient Stripes Card

Next up is a simple gradient line background with Maya Blue Letter Sparrow watercolor.

All you need for this clean and simple (CAS) watercolor background is your favorite watercolor and a flat brush. Load up your brush with highly pigmented watercolor and drag it down the paper.

The brush will run out of pigment and water towards the end of the stroke. This creates a beautiful dry brush effect on the rough watercolor paper. If I made this card again I would reverse the direction of the gradient stripes.

The shadow is two layers of 40 lb vellum. The hand-lettered piece is cut from Curious Metallic Lapis Lazuli cardstock. I threw down a bunch of navy and silver sequins, adhered them all, and called this one done.
