Hello, it’s Gaylynn here with another installment of my Watercolor Wednesday series. For this card, I used distress oxide watercolor for the background and for the flowers.
Here is an all occasion handmade card using a distress oxide watercolor background technique. I used pre-stamped flowers in watercolor to overlay the background.

I made a video tutorial for this distress oxide watercolor background card. It includes instructions along the way throughout the video, however, a written process follows below.
Distress Oxide Watercolor Background Floral Card
By Gaylynn Martling for Unity’s Watercolor Wednesday
(See also the video tutorial for this project.)
To begin, pre-stamp and watercolor flowers onto watercolor paper. Cut a background panel from watercolor paper.
Dab two colors of distress oxide ink onto an acrylic block or plastic craft mat. Mist with water.
Lay the background watercolor paper over half of the ink to gently pick up the color on one side of your panel. Or, watercolor the entire panel if you want to.
Tap a brush over the panel with a color. Repeat the tapping, but with water only. Pick up the water with a paper towel. Heat set between colors.
Finally, layer and assemble the card.
Here is another look at my card.
