Hello, Gaylynn here. Adding leftover watercolor pieces to card projects makes beautiful accents in card making. Today on the Unity blog, I am sharing two happy wishes wreath cards using leftovers.
The background leftover watercolor pieces were made during a previous card project. That project link is noted at the end of this post.
I made a quick video tutorial HERE showing the process for this project.
For this one, I used the diluted red watercolor with appears pink after drying, in this example.
And, blue watercolor was used for this example.
These are helpful tips for using leftover watercolor pieces in card making. To begin, gather trim pieces from a different watercolor project. Next, stamp the focal point onto cardstock. Then, add color to the stamping to coordinate with the watercolor leftovers. In this example, I added watercolor from Zig markers using the wet on dry watercolor technique for the flowers and the leaves. Now, place the leftover watercolor layers onto the card base for the background. Finally, center the floral layer over the background pieces, to finish.
Finally, this is another look at the duo.
