Watercolor paper background technique with reinkers and baby wipes. Cards by Patty Bennett featuring Thoughtful Moments hybrid embossing folder.

Wow my friends.. I’m so super excited to share this background technique with you!!  I’ve heard of baby wipe and reinker techniques, I’ve heard of watercolor background techniques, but had never combined the 2 to create gorgeous and super easy and colorful backgrounds!!!  I saw this demonstrated by Natalie White (from Stampin’ UP!) in a demonstrator only Facebook group last week and literally ran up the stairs to my stamping studio to try it out!!

Watch the video!

I’ve included a free video at the bottom of this post so you can see how easy these are to create!!

Each of my cards features a greeting from the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid embossing folder bundle – see instructions for using it in my video below.  I tried to keep these cards really simple to show off the background.  Thank you Natalie for the inspiration!

My suggestion is to create 3 at once… .watch the video to see why I suggest that.

I cut all my Watercolor paper sheets in half to create these cards, then layered them onto a coordinating colored cardstock mat before adding them to my base card.

That cute little scallop is found in the Zany Zoo dies. I thought it looked really cute with the dots in the Everyday Details dies.

As shown in the video, I tried out the Thoughtful Moments hybrid embossing folder greetings on Flight and Airy designer paper (a Sale-a-Bration gift item).  You can also use it on cardstock.  I used the new brayer to add ink to the raised/embossed portion of the words.

I was trying to be really creative with this one.. and decided to “sacrifice” one background by using my Heartfelt Hexagon punch and punching out shapes to overlap behind the greeting.  Just something a little different!

One thing I love to do on regular watercolor backgrounds is to splatter some water on them.. as it dries it makes fun spots and adds interest and texture.  I tried it with the blue/green backgrounds and love them!  You can also splatter Wink of Stella or markers.
