Watercolor Lifting | Thank You Card

If you think creating an ombre finish on your cards is difficult, think again! This technique is not only flawless but ombre tones are revealed with – ready – WATER! This thank you card was created using a custom handmade background stamp. It’s a tip in the video that you won’t want to miss. Now you can use any size images to create stunning backgrounds.

Watercolor Lifting | Note Card 

I recommend creating this technique on a larger piece of watercolor paper. Trimming it down to fit your desired card size and layout will leave you with leftover pieces that can create additional cards. It’s a two-for-one! These strips were leftovers from the thank you card above.

Watercolor Lifting | Birthday Card

I created this technique on a full piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. This 100% cotton paper has a natural white finish with a subtle texture. It’s not only acid free but the gelatin sizing allows you great control while keeping the colors vibrant. Don’t skimp on the watercolor paper for this technique. It makes a huge difference!

This birthday card showcases just one area of the full sheet I created above leaving me enough leftover to make multiple cards with this layout. Shades of purple are widely popular since they are non-gender specific. Which color combination will you try?
