Watercolor Paintables

Good morning! Today I'm sharing a couple of cards using the beautiful pre-printed Watercolor Paintables by Suzy Plantamura from the Cherished release from Simon Says Stamp - this set was particularly lovely, and I love how nice it is to have something all ready to just color when you have a few spare minutes that will make a fabulous card with minimal supplies and effort. I've also added little touches to these to make them a bit more unique as well which is fun!

This one I colored using almost a serious of tiny dots - dabbing my watercolors on in a tapping motion. I love the mottled effect this gives and all the texture! It is hard to see in the photos, but I also added Stickles to the flowers and the butterflies wings. The perfect finishing touch for this dreamy card!

And for the next card I did a simpler and quicker watercoloring - but layered up color for texture and depth.

I set down a light watercolor wash in each color, then came over again with the same color to add more depth.

And then, for the finishing touch on this one - I added Glossy Accents to the words, centers of the flowers, and the birds eye, beak, and feet. On both of these cards I rounded off one corner after adhering it to a white top folding cardbase. One more little touch to make them uniquely mine!
