A Watercolor Hello…

Today’s post is a technique I saw on Pinterest and thought…how cute is that?  Now the one I saw had the word “thanks” but I couldn’t find a stamp that was big and broad enough to work.  (Imagine that!)

This “hello”  stamp is a retired set called My Friend.  Even thought it doesn’t say “thanks” I think this card could be used as a thank you if you wanted to use it that way.

So here’s the card…


And the Stuff ‘N Digits


  • Paper:  3 1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White notecard, Crushed Curry Cardstock and watercolor paper
  • Ink:  Versamark
  • Stamps:  My Friend (retired)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Black Embossing Powder, watercolor paint, brush

Digits ‘N Directions

  • To the 3 1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White notecard add a Crushed Curry layer measuring 3 3/8″ x 4 7/8″
  • The watercolor paper is 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″
  • Stamp the sentiment with Versamark and sprinkle with Black Embossing Powder then heat.
  • Choose your watercolor colors (here I’ve used primary colors).  Wet one portion of the card and drop color at the center point.  Turn the card back and forth to let the color run.  Skip a space and repeat.  Let the colors dry before wetting the space next to it if you want clean colors.  If you want them to run together you can paint the whole front and just add your colors randomly and let the paper and paint do the work for you.

This is a great little technique with a unique look.  I could see trying this with several other stamp sets.  What do you see?

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


When my kids were little, I had them convinced I had an eye in the back of my head.  Of course they argued with me, but they were never really sure…at least while they were little.

Have a great day…get inky…Be HaPpY!




  1. Great card today. Love all the water colors and big hello. Thanks for tips on how to create this look. I’ll have to try it soon. I had to laugh at the “B ism” today. My mother had eyes in the back of her head when I was young and I did as well when my son was young. It’s funny how effective that can be for a short time.

    • I love this technique…hope you give it a try. Feeling blank today. Our city is in shock (I live in Chattanooga) after the shootings yesterday. Trying to find any sense in all of this…B
