Tammy shares some quick and easy watercolour cards

Hi everyone
Tammy here to share a few really quick cards I made recently using watercolour and some simple stamping.

They really were quick and simple.

I used the Prima Watercolours - Tropcial.  Just love these colours.
They have a really nice depth to them.  Some other watercolours I've tried are a bit too washy but these are lovely and intense.
I also love that there is a metal lid section where you can mix colours.
So handy.

For the first card, I just added purple and blue randomly to the background.
Once dry, I added a few flicks.
I then stamped some of the gorgeous Dina Wakley Abstract Bloom Stamps using archival ink 
You must use a waterproof ink so that it doesn't bleed when water is added.
I cut these out and added to the background with foam tape for extra dimension.
I then stamped a sentiment using the Dina Wakley What to Say Stamps .
So quick and I love it!!
Card 2 was created by painting some stripes onto the background. 
I chose yellow as it's just starting to warm up here and I'm desperate for the sunshine!!
I then stamped some Dina Flowers and some leaves.
Some of these I left blank and some I added watercolour too.
I added them on using foam tape for some dimension.
A quick sentiment stamp, and it's done!
For card 3 I added watercolours to the background along the centre of the card, and worked it outwards.
I was aiming for a paint splatter look.
I love the way the colours merge!!
I then flicked some black paint onto the card and added another Dina Wakley What to Say stamp.
So quick and easy!
For my final card I painted a rainbow effect across the card, blending the colours so they merged together.
I then simply stamped some of the tiny abstract blooms from the stamp set across the page.  I wanted them to look like they were trailing.
A quick stamp with a sentiment, and I was finished!

I just love these watercolours and stamps.  I love how they work together. So many options!!
