Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. This is the first Wednesday of the month and that means it is the Monthly Global video hop. The theme is Anything but a Card. I chose to do a home decor piece. Aren’t you supposed to do something everyday that scares you? I chose to make a watercolour painting with stamps. Let’s take a look.


Anything but a card


Did you know that Stampin’Up! carries watercolour paper? It comes in 5″ by 7″ pieces but I had to cut it down to 4″ by 6″ to fit the opening in my frame. Don’t throw those extra strips away! They are perfect for practicing different techniques and for trying different amounts of water saturation.


Oceanfront Watercolour


Here you can see it unframed.

My First Attempt


This was the first watercolour I did and then I forgot to take a picture of it in natural light. These photos were taken at night so they’re not the best, but they will have to do. I like this version too. You will notice that I had a little too much water on my reeds.

I’m Curious!


Which watercolour do you prefer? The one with or without words? When you tackle a project like this each one of your attempts will be different. It is so much fun and your pack of watercolour paper comes with ten sheets! What are you waiting for?


Video Tutorial


Here is my video showing you how I did it.



Hugs from Holland


By the time you are reading this I am spending my fourth day in Holland already! I am so excited to share pictures of Holland in the spring. This is the first time that I am in Holland for early April. It is also my shortest stay in quite a while, just a month this time. Thanks for joining me today and happy stamping!
