Watercolour Magnolias for the Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers

Here is the latest Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers. Click on the link to find out more about the challenge.

Here are the colours for this week’s challenge ….

Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Powder Pink

My Card:


  • The colours for this week’s challenge are no longer current, so I have used current colours and toned them down by watercolouring to try and get as close a match as possible to the colours of the challenge. I used Old Olive to replace Lemon Lime Twist, Blushing Bride to replace Powder Pink and Rich Razzleberry to replace Berry Burst.
  • I added some ‘splatters’ of Rich Razzleberry for added texture.
  • Supplies:
    • Stamp Set: Good Morning Magnolia
    • Cardstock: Basic Black, Watercolor Paper, Whisper White
    • Ink: Saddle Brown Stazon, Blushing Bride, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry
    • Accessories: Aqua Painter
  • … for the inside of the card and the envelope.

Why not have a go at this challenge? I would love to see your projects.

  1. Thanks Mal. To do the splatters, use an Aqua Painter to make a wet pool of ink in the lid of the ink pad (or stamp an acrylic block into the ink pad and make the pool of watery ink on it). Pick up some of the watery ink on the Aqua Painter and flick it onto your project. Try it out on scrap paper first to ensure you have the depth of colour that you want. You could use a stamp with a splatter image. In that case, I would use second or third generation stamping so that the splatters are not too dark.

  2. Lovely card Annette and the watercolouring is just beautiful but how did you do the ink splatters – is it a stamp or a technique? XX Mal


  3. Lovely card Annette. Just wondering how you did the little splatters on the card – is that a stamp or a technique, please.
