Sakura Koi watercolor tones + stamping card tutorial.

 This is an inspirational slimline card featuring Sakura Koi watercolor tones with stamping.  I used blends of watercolors for this slimline or tall style card.

Helpful tips:
Here are helpful tips for creating this inspirational slimline card.  To begin, stamp the hands and the sentiment onto the smooth side of watercolor paper.  Next, mix watercolor to the shades you want for the stamping.  I chose to mix colors to get the tones that I was looking for.  Then, add color and blend the color out with a wet paint brush.  Also, add more color layers if you want to.  Next, trim or die-cut a slimline or tall card base and card layers.  Also, Finally, layer everything to finish.

This card base was cut 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" and scored at 3 3/4" to coordinate with the MCT tall die-cut layers.

I made a video tutorial showing the process for this project.
