Happy Friday everyone! Are you all staying safe and healthy? Trying not to go insane with this new norm, right? I find myself doing lots and lots of watercoloring these days, to give myself some therapeutic time and to relax. It has been a wonderful escape.

I am sharing another watercoloring project with you today in hopes that you will find today’s video helpful, and that it inspires you to break out some of your supplies to get creative! Maybe you can make a card or two to send to your loved ones who you can’t be with in person yet.

In today’s video project, I am doing a very straightforward watercoloing technique on a stamped image. Its so easy, anyone can do it! Let’s start with the video tutorial first, as it is packed with lots of explanation and full progress of cardmaking.

Watch the tutorial below or HERE on Youtube

One of my favorite stamp sets was used for this card, and it is from the newest release by Altenew. I am so happy that all of us can still enjoy some crafting times and find creative escape during this uncertain time. Using watercolor brush markers, I was able to easily complete the card with fun, bold colors.

Below are some closed up photos of today’s project, so you can see the card in details:

  2. Lovely work! You make it look so easy. Dividing my time between cardmaking, trying to knit, reading, baking, eating…

  3. I really enjoy the video instructions. I am converting from oil painting to watercolors. So, all the help I get makes me a better colorist. Thank you.

  4. hello miss nicole! I love it when you join a hop…. you are super talented and I love learning from you. Thank you for making a video! hugs!

  7. Beautiful card! Thanks for the inspiration & video. Seeing such lovely work keeps me motivated during lockdown.

  8. Nicole you’ve used my favourite stamp set in this fabulous release. Thank you for the video as I always enjoy watching the process of someone watercolouring as it’s my favourite medium.

  9. Love your beautiful card and the watercoloring technique! This looks like a great stamp set for this type of coloring!

  10. What a beautiful card! I have not tried watercoloring. Your video provided a lot of information and has given me the boost to try it. Thanks for sharing the process and your talent!

    • This may be my favorite color combination! I love so many, but this seems exceptional to me. Thanks and please be healthy

  11. Stunning card. I love the Statement Flowers set and the colors (and your water coloring) are amazing.

  12. Your card is beautiful!!! Thank you for sharing the video on the process of how you created it <3<3<3

  13. Thanks for the amazing inspiration! I am totally in love with the new release! Especially the stencils and the gorgeous dies!

  14. Very pretty card. Thank you for the inspiration. I think the Statement Flower stamp set is my favorite from the new release.

  15. I love your card, what a beautiful stap set. I am not very good at watercolouring but I keep practicing. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Such a pretty blue flower card. How I wish they grew like that! Thank you for sharing the video.

  17. Beautiful! I am new to the watercolor brush markers and painting, so it was nice watching your video. What a nice stamp!

  18. love the blue florals and the video is so fantanstic.. i am definitely saving up for these water color markers.. i havent tried them ever. but your work relly makes me get them..

  19. I love one layered cards, more practical when trying to send them out. But I find it harder to make as they just seem to lack something. But this card is fabulous! Your watercolouring really pop’s these floral’s off the card. Thanks for the video I am new to water colouring and have a lot to learn still.

  20. I am working on adding my stamps and Dies to an app called Evernote I really like it since I can just look up what I have or need to complete a project. Iโ€™m also able to add inspiration photos to each set so thatโ€™s amazing too! After watching your live though now Iโ€™m thinking I should do a little baking and watercoloring too, lol!

  21. Thank you so much for your encouragement! Watercolor IS intimidating for many of us. The watercolor brush markers with a water brush to add the water makes it seem much more possible ๐Ÿ™‚ Not a whole different set of supplies than what i already have, being excused for making mistakes at the beginning, and enjoying the coloring makes us all feel relaxed and ready to have a good play.

  22. Love this stamp set, the images are gorgeous and I think you did an amazing job coloring them with the watercolor markers Nicole. Thanks for the inspiration and the video it is very much appreciated!

  23. Your videos are a joy to watch as you give precise instructions and the why behind these instruction in your easy to understand narratives. Isn’t this stamp the nicest product in a line up of outstanding release. Water coloring is indeed daunting but you give me confidence that I too might be able to do it too! Thanks!

  24. Bright, beautiful, and colorful! A lovely card anyone would be thrilled to receive. Thank you for sharing!

  25. Just gorgeous. I need this set, thank you for showing your process. Inspires me to keep trying.

  26. I luv Altenew stamps and dies….this format really helps me with my coloring/painting. Thank you so much for doing these gorgeous flowers.
