Watercolored Wetlands - Stampin' Up!

Today's card is a CAS birthday card with a bit of watercolor on it.  I wanted to use a stamp from Wetlands, so I created the scene in watercolor, stamped the birds in the water, then added a touch of shadows.  This was originally on a much bigger piece of watercolor paper, but you never know (or at least I never know!) how my finished card is going to turn out.

For this card I decided to cut off a bunch of what I painted and make it square and "frame" it.  I used the square framelits to make the frame.  The sky seemed a bit empty so I drew a few birds in it.  That seemed to finish off the picture for me. :)

These are the colors I used to create my scene.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Supplies used on this card:

Watercolor Paper from craft store (SU! paper is not big enough to use for a card base)


  1. Your card looks fabulous. I'm the same way. I never know where my card will end up. I start with a vision an end up with a completely different looking card then what I was planning ☺ Guess that's why it's so much fun. Your card looks beautiful and "planned"

    1. Thanks so much, PJ! I'm the same as you...every card is a surprise even though it should turn out the way I planned it in my head! lol The first time I tried this card I stamped the birds before the sky and, duh, I forgot to do them with ink that doesn't bleed! Nothing like a black and blue sky with blobs of birds! lol

  2. I loved this card so much, that I had to pin it to save for future reference. I love watercolouring on my cards, and wanted to thank you for listing the colours you used. Beautiful job on this one!

    1. Thank you, Sharon! I hope you get a chance to give it a try. :)
