I had made several cards using watercolor background created with Ken Oliver Color Burst Watercolor Powder. I cut those background down with some rectangle dies and had a lot of strips of watercolor remaining. They were so pretty that I decided to tape the strips together to create another background. I really like it when I can make a card by using up something that I typically would have thrown away.
I used some Post-it Tape to hold the strips of watercolor paper together and then die cut it using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle. The background is so colorful I wanted to keep the rest of the elements on the card pretty simple. I decided to use Papertrey Ink’s Party Time Die. I cut it three times from Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and glued them together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive and then glued it to the watercolor strips rectangle with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
I added Darice Sticky Back Foam to the watercolor panel and adhered it to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the card was done. Easy to create, but because of that beautiful watercolor background really bright and colorful.
