Goodbye Summer

October 2, 2018

Hi there,

it’s Tanja here and I would like to show you how to create this no-line watercolor goodbye summer card.

Step 1 – Stamping and Masking

  • With a very pale ink, stamp the images from the Krista Schneider Sun & Surf set onto watercolor paper (shown: Distress Ink in Antique Linen) to create the scene as shown or as you prefer
  • Use the masking technique so images appear to overlap (flip-flops in front of the surfboard at the right, waves in front of the other two surfboards)

Step 2 – Coloring and Creating the Sentiment

  • Color the scene  and add splatters with watercolors
  • Create the first part of the sentiment with the help of a labelmaker
  • Stamp the second part of the sentiment (just the word SUMMER) with VersaFine Clair Morning Mist ink.


Step 3 – Assembing the Card

  • Add a grey strip (Pewter Soft Finish Cardstock) and a purple strip (Perfect Purple Soft Finish Cardstock) to the left side of the panel. Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape, adhere to a White Soft Finish Cardstock side-fold card base.


Thanks for stopping by.
