“Happy World Card Making Day! Using watercolour techniques, I coloured in this beautiful image from the SCT Succulents stamp set. I love succulents, in real life and on cards, and am loving that they are also on trend. If colouring is not your forte, the images are big enough to paper piece as well. Making a card for a friend or friends is the perfect way to spend WCMD.

  1. Create a 4.25 x 5.5 card base
  2. Trim watercolour paper to 3.75 x 5 inches.
  3. Stamp images in permanent black ink.
  4. Watercolour in the image
  5. Stamp sentiment in black ink
  6. Tie ribbon around the watercoloured panel, and create a bow, adhere panel to the card using foam adhesive.”
