Make an EASY Watercolour Die Cut Floral Background!

Do you love the look of watercolour flowers but don’t have the confidence to paint them? Today I share a quick and easy cheat’s method to add them to your project!

I still adore the look of watercolour and I would love to be able to paint my own floral background, but I’m not there yet lol. So I decided an easy compromise was to die cut the beautiful Mod Floral Die from Ellen Hutson with some Bristol Smooth Cardstock and I simply added a little of the Altenew Artists’ Watercolors.

Once it dried I adhered it to the front of a topfold A2 card. Then added a funny sentiment from the Succlent Sentiments Stamp Set.

I used my Copics to colour this sweet girl from the So Matcha set and popped her up in front of the watercolour garden.

I hope you have been inspired to create a floral watercolour background on your card, even if it’s the ‘cheat’s way’ lol.

Thanks so much for sharing your precious time with me again today. I really do appreciate it. Crafty hugs,

  1. Oh, the colours are so soft and pleasing! Love this sweet card and fun sentiment!!! Haven’t said in awhile…but absolutely LOVE all your work, Therese!♥ Thanks for all you add to my little ‘world’!☺

  2. Love your watercolour background Therese! The colours are just perfect (like everything you do).

  3. You’ve reminded me how much I love that sweet match girl! Just so darling – especially with those ‘cherry blossoms!’

  4. Ohh!! this card is so adorable, Therese, love the soft colors of these little flowers as a background for the sweet Geisha.
    I also want to thank you for always sharing your amazing talent with us, you inspire and teach.
    Please stay healthy and safe.

  5. I love the colors you used. My instinct would have been to color her kimono much differently than the cherry blossoms background… which I know is a mistake– limiting the color palette is a MUCH better idea because it is more pleasing to the eye. Your choices are spot on! (ps- is it okay for me to “replicate” this look?) 🙂

  6. Thanks so much June, I’m so happy that you like it so much that you want to replicate it, and YES, of course you can. Hope you enjoy making it as much as I did!

  7. So nice to see you back.
    A break can certainly get those creative juices flowing.
