Happy Thursday Everyone! I have a wicked fun post for you today! Pretty Pink Posh is hosting a Watercolor Blog Hop and Paulina asked me to guest post to share with you all the details and a watercolor creation of my own! 🙂 I had so much fun creating my card I decided to dust off my video editing skills and created a video for you as well! I hope you enjoy it!
There are also some amazing sponsors for this hop- be sure to check them out at the bottom of this post.
The blog hop officially opens June 5th at 6a PST and ends June 8th at 11:55pm PST. You don’t need a blog to participate- you can link to flickr or even instagram!
Sometimes when I get a stamp- right away I have an idea of how I want to use it and that was the case with this Multifaceted stamp from Winnie & Walter. I knew I wanted to white emboss it and watercolor over it. The masking idea and colors etc were all a result of what inspired me that day. See the super cute stitched label? That is from Pretty Pink Posh! I love it, it comes with 3 different styles in the set. I share exactly how I created this card in this video here:
Love your deep colored background. TFS
love the colors!
Love your card Jenn! It’s so bright and fun!
This is stunning!! I LOVE how you embossed that stamp and then watercolored over it with the vibrant colors. Lovely card!!
Wow! What an amazing way to showcase both watercoloring and a background stamp! Gorgeous!
What a nice bright background. The gold embossed sentiment is perfect!
that background stamp would be so fun to color!!!
Awesome! I have that fab stamp – yay! xxx
I love the vivid colors!
They look even more bold against the white embossed image.
Love the bright colors and shiny gold, nice contrast and just beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

I love the sharp contrast of the white facets on the rich tones of watercolor! What a great card!!

Very cool technique. Now I need to look through my stamps to see if I have any that would work for this type of card!
What a beautiful, radiant card – the bursts of color are just so amazing and this is just so well done!!
Gorgeous, I love those bright colors

Oh wow, this is fabulous – love how you have used the stap and the tag is so cute !
awesome watercolored background!!
Beautiful card, I love the vibrant colors and embossing. Thank you, Jen, for the great tutorial. I never would have guessed that you used distress inks!
I am always surprised how vibrant Distress Ink pads become when used with watercoloring. Thanks for doing the video to help show what you were doing.
Super fun and bright card .. Thanks for sharing 🙂
oh really lovely your choosing of the distress ink really bright and happy color on your card that purple I must have so adorable on your card you really have new collection of the distress ink color I have older one haha
love your card much
Stunning background with those vibrant watercolors and that fun stamp!!
Love the white embossing over the bright watercolors! Great card!
Jenn, this is absolutely STUNNING..one day my watercolours will be so bright and amazing. I love all the little details. Cx
Lovely colours, the gold embossing really makes the whole design pop!
Great vibrant colors!
LOVE the rainbow!!! I also like that the colors are not blended together – very pretty.
Simply fabulous. Love your VT and card – you inspired me to make my card.
I love the technique of the blended background. I have tried just putting Distress inks onto wet cardstock but have ended up with a mess. This way of a more controlled addition of each color and heating between may work much better for me. Thanks so much for a great video showing me a different way to use my stash!
VERY WELL DONE!
I love the bright colors and geometric stamp together! A match made in heaven! Big smiles for whoever opens this one! TFS!
Fabulous vibrant card, beautiful embossing! Thank you for the tutorial, it was very inspiring.
