Truly Scrumptious Washy Watercolour :D

A trio of really simple messy watercolour cards using the lovely cake/sweet/flower cart stamp from the Truly Scrumptious A4 stamp set free with issue 39 of Creative Stamping Magazine :D This is such a gorgeous stamp set, and this is actually my third video using it (I think the other two were called 'How've You Bean?' and 'Belated Birthday Wishes' :D), as well as for the five cards I made for the magazine too :D There are so many occasions that this set will be perfect for, it's really one of those must have sets :D I wanted to use all three variations for the cart stamp, so I decided to make a trio of really simple cards, I used three different colour combinations of Gansai Tambi watercolours to create a washy background over my images stamped in black (Ranger Archival, as this is a permanent ink so won't run when you add watercolours over the top :D), then once they were dry, I came back in with some coordinating colours of alcohol markers and added a little bit of solid colour to certain places :D Such a simple idea, but it makes a nice quick and easy card :D Hope you liked them :D

To see the process behind this trio of truly scrumptious cards, please watch my YouTube video below, or over on my channel CRaFTi PoTeNTiAl :D

Loads and loads more photos of all three cards below :D


  1. Those paints are lovely and creamy! They almost look like gouache. Nice cards, as always.

  2. Super cards, such a fab and effective batch make! I do love the Gansai Tambi watercolours, and must admit I've had my eye on a set for a while. You've chosen lovely colours - the orange and yellow card is especially stunning. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Seven Hills Crafts :)

  3. Love the ombre watercolour washed background,that's such an effective way to highlight the centre image :)
