Watercolor Wash with a Ziploc Bag!

Hello Stampers! Thanks for dropping by! I hope you all survived Valentine's Day yesterday. My husband and I celebrated over a couple large steaks at our favorite supper club last night - yum!

Today I've got an incredibly simple, beautiful card for you using a watercolor wash background that you create with a Ziploc bag!

You can see just how easy this technique is in my video tutorial below.

Who would've thought such a simple technique could be so beautiful! This is a great card for making multiples and not getting bored. You can experiment with lots of different color combinations and easily make a stack of those cards you always need to have on hand - think Thank You's, Get Well, Sympathy, Christmas, Birthday...

For those of you who like to follow along a step-by-step tutorial, I've got that for you too!

Gather your supplies:

  • STAMPS – Petal Palette (145788 clear, 145785 wood)
  • PAPER – Whisper White Thick (140272), Watercolor Paper (122959)
  • INK – Tuxedo Black Memento (132708)
  • OTHER – Stampin’ Write Markers (131264 – Many Marvelous Markers – colors used in this card are Rose Red, Pacific Point, So Saffron, Pear Pizazz), Aqua Painters (103954), Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755) Plastic Sandwich Bag (like Ziploc)           
Cutting & Scoring: 
  • Whisper White Thick 11” x 4-1/4”, scored at 5-1/2”
  • Watercolor 4” x 5-1/4"           
  • Lay your plastic sandwich bag over the top of your watercolor paper. This will give you a guideline for your marker coloring.
  • Using Stampin’ Write markers, scribble colors of your choice on the baggie in vertical scribbles across the card. Set aside – scribbled side up.
  • Use aqua painter to wet the watercolor layer generously where you want your color placed. Do not wet the entire layer – just the area you want the watercolor wash.
  • Flip inked/scribbled plastic sandwich baggie over to set on top of the watercolor layer (inked side will now be facing down, touching watercolor wash so ink can spread). Smoosh the baggie around with your fingers to gently spread ink. Let dry thoroughly.
  • Using Memento, stamp greeting and flowers as shown above.
  • Adhere watercolor card front to card base.
  • Send to someone special!
