It’s Gaylynn here with another installment of my Watercolor Wednesday series. This is a way to make your own watercolor handmade patterned paper from a half sheet of stamping.
Here is a fun way to easily make three coordinating card designs using a half sheet of watercolor handmade patterned paper. With added watercolor and stamping, the dried panel can be trimmed to fit most any card or creation in multiples and in different layouts.

I made a quick video tutorial for this. It includes instructions along the way throughout the video. However, the written process follows.
Handmade patterned paper ~ 3 floral watercolor cards from 1 stamped panel
By Gaylynn Martling for Unity’s Watercolor Wednesday
(See also the video tutorial for this project.)
Begin by stamping onto watercolor paper. I used Clearsnap ColorBox ink and a half sheet of paper.
Clear embossing powder was used over the wet ColorBox stamping and heat set.
Then I trimmed the stamped panel to make three card designs.
Watercolor was added around the flowers using one shade of coral. The same color was applied in layers. This adds depth and contrast.
Next, blot puddles then heat set. Trim to fit your card designs. Die-cuts are optional.
Finally, add sentiments and embellishments to finish.
