Hello! How about we do a new technique? I decided to go out of my comfort zone and try the loose watercoloring technique. If you have been following me for a while, you know I am all about clean and simple cards. Today I am ditching my old self and experimenting.

I was highly inspired by Dawn at Wplus9 – she is really amazing with watercoloring. I am not even close to her skills, but practice and more practice will help me get there someday. I am going to keep the post short and sweet since the video above explains the whole process step by step.


Inspired by Stamping released new stamps few weeks ago and I just fell in love with this Spring Bouquet stamp set. I love Joanna’s designs and she does a wonderful job. I love how vintage it looks – this would be a perfect card for my shabby chic friends.


If you do not have Distress Inks and Markers, I highly recommend getting them and starting your collection. These are so great with watercoloring – its unique property will make watercoloring that much more fun and interesting for you.

Have you ever tried loose watercoloring? If not I recommend that you give it a try!

  1. Wow this is beautiful! You did an awesome job with the ‘loose’ watercoloring!! Thank you so much for the video too. I love this look and have been working with watercoloring for few weeks and it’s not easy but here you made it look easy 🙂

  2. Thank you so much Nicole. In your contests last week I mentioned that I like water coloring but don’t really know how to do it. Thank you for showing us and I will be so happy when I can make something that looks as good as your first attempt. Keep inspiring us, please!
