Watercolor Backgrounds with Darkroom Door Stamps
Happy Tuesday!! It’s Shari here with some fun color! Have you had trouble creating watercolor backgrounds for your cards? I’ve discovered the amazing Watery Washes stamp set from Darkroom Door that really makes it easy!
I’ve used my favorite Distress inks to create the background then white embossed the daisy from the Fine Flowers stamp set also from Darkroom Door.
I like to make blank cards to have on handy for unexpected events. This one is great for a birthday, going away or even a thank you. It only takes a second to stamp a sentiment on the inside.
I’ve shot a video to show how to create this card which you can view below or on our YouTube channel.
