Watercolor Crazy

Back in the spring I started experimenting with watercolor backgrounds using the Tim Holtz distress markers and boy am I having fun with it. My first card was a Father's Day card which turned out so great! 

I followed it up with another card.

Since then I have grown my distress marker collection immensely! My poor debit card! 

I purchased the Poppy Stamp Boddington Tree Cluster die recently and thought it would be fun to use the cutout on my existing watercolor technique. The results were great. Instead of stamping with black ink this is another great option. 

At this point I have realized that watercolor makes me happy! I have so much fun seeing how the colours blend and matching different cours together. 

Hope you enjoy my projects!


  1. Beautiful card selection Michele, Boddington trees look great with your backgrounds.

  2. The trees go perfectly with the watercoloured backgrounds and your choice of patterned papers adds such a fun touch! Thanks for playing along with us at Poppystamps!

  3. Beautiful backgrounds you've created Michelle! I love the different ways you topped them too with stamped images and die cuts and they BOTH techniques look amazing! Each is a one of a kind beauty!

  4. Thank you so much ladies for the feedback and your wonderful comments. I am having so much fun working with the watercolour technique because it seems like the possibilities are endless. I fell in love with the Boddington trees the moment I saw them. The believe card with them cut out of white, on the blog, is gorgeous as well. That will be my next project with the die. Thank you for visiting my blog!
