Hello! Today I am going to show you how to add some lovely bright colours and watercolour all on Papermilldirect card.

The products I used are:

You will also need:

  • Stamps
  • Watercolour paints
  • Sun die
  • Heat gun
  • Embossing powder
  • Sequins


To make the card base I cut down a piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm scored and folded in half. I then used a piece of Apple Green Card Plain 240gsm which I trimmed and adhered this onto my base, using Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml. I then added another piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm for my card front which I adhered onto the Apple Green Card Plain 240gsm.

I then stamped my images onto a piece of White Card Plain 250gsm and water coloured the images in. I did not use a lot of water when I was water colouring. I then cut all my images out and placed them onto my card front using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

The next step is to heat emboss your greeting. I used some lovely Teal Plain Card 240gsm and heat embossed white embossing powder onto this. I then trimmed the greeting down and adhered this at the top of my card using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then die cut a sun using Daffodil Plain Card 290gsm. Once all the pieces were placed I added some sequins using Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

For the envelope I used some lovely Pink Plain Card 290gsm and this finishes off your card.

Its really fun to experiment with different cardstock and colouring mediums, I hope you enjoy making your water coloured cards.

Have a great day!
