Here it is! New Video Tutorial - Watercolor Wash Backgrounds for Cards

May 20, 2017

Yay! Finally! Today I have a new video tutorial on these watercolor wash backgrounds I've been making lately! My followers have been asking to know more and some wanted to see the process! I've been wanting to make a video tutorial for a while and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get back on track! 

The background I'm painting on the video is based on the ones I used for today's cards. I got new watercolor colors and I've been playing with warmer washes. I love how easy it is to finish a card when you use a watercolor wash... I love adding bold images and sentiments foiled on vellum. These sentiments are actually from my latest digi stamp release on Etsy and I think they look perfect on these backgrounds.



I am not using watercolor cardstock today, instead I am painting on metallic cardstock. This cardstock is called Cryogen White Iridescent and it is carried by Paper Temptress. It has a subtle shimmer and when your watercolor dries the cardstock sparkles through the color... Just beautiful.



I think making these backgrounds is my new crafty addiction! The process is very spontaneous so it is also relaxing and inspiring. I hope you are able to try it out too. If you do, do tag me on social media using #gracielliedesign


For more inspiration make sure you check out some other cards I shared recently using the same technique. I go through the details of how I put them together so that might be interesting for you also!


That is it! Thanks so much for visiting! I will be back with a new tutorial very soon! I invite you to subscribe by email to this blog so you don't miss any of our new projects!
