Kat’s Technique of the Week: Rainbow Watercolors
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Good morning everyone! Kat here today to share a fun and easy technique that I like to use on my cards from time to time called rainbow watercolors.

To begin, I cut a piece of watercolor paper to desired size. I then paint strips of colors onto the watercolor panel using watercolors. Note: This watercolor set was purchased from Wal-Mart for about $5.

Once the watercolors dry, I layer on embellishments in colors that coordinate nicely with the strips of color. I decided to go for a citrusy color palette and added a bit of coordinating mist sprinkles as well.

Once everything was dry, I mounted it to my card base I love how easy this technique is but also how fun the end results are!

Thanks so much for popping in today!


Supplies: Patterned paper from Simple Stories; flair and label sticker from Pretty Little Studio; acrylic sentiment and chipboard from Freckled Fawn; mist from Heidi Swapp; adhesive dots from Tombow; adhesive runner and liquid glue from Elmer?s.

    Awesome card. I love cheap paints and how they give just as good of a look as some of the more expensive. I have Prang which was 5$. I love the summer card and colors. Very creative.
