This is the final card that we made at my Watercolor class.  I wanted to do a masculine card, so I went to Pinterest for inspiration.  I saw a card similar to this one and though it was perfect.   You could use this for birthday, Father's Day, Anniversary or a just because card.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Old Olive Card Stock #100702

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Chocolate Chip Card Stock #102128

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"

Watercolor Paper #122959

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"

I started by stamping the two images using Stazon ink.  Then I used Old Olive ink for the hills and Garden Green ink for the grass and trees.  The deer and trunks of the trees were watercolored with Chocolate Chip ink.  I used Sky Blue ink for the sky.  

For your envelope and inside your card you could stamp the trees or the deer, but don't use the aqua painters.  I just stamped them without coloring them.  

At my watercolor class we also played with the new Watercolor Pencils.  These were such a popular item with Stampin' Up! that they ran out of them.  Don't worry though, they will be back.  I will let you know as soon as they are.  

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the cards we made at my class.  You will be seeing more watercoloring in the future from me.  I am in love with it.  I need to keep playing and learning more about it so I can share with all of you.

Have a blessed Sunday!

I love that stamp set and this is a wonderful way to use it. Your watercoloring is perfect! Did you just freehand the mountains?

Joyce Whitman

Hi Susan,

Yes I made the lines for the mountains first and used more ink on them than the other areas of the mountains. I wanted definite lines so you could see the different heights. When I was all done, I went back and put more ink on just the edges.
