Watercolor Ombre Technique with Video Tutorial

Today’s project is another watercolor ombre card in a different color way and I’ve created a video tutorial for you!

This is my Mother’s Day card for this year! For the ombre colors, I chose Berry Burst, Sweet Sugarplum, and Pink Pirouette. I love the saying “lovely inside & out” – perfect for so many occasions! Without further ado, here’s my video tutorial for this card and the watercolor ombre technique:

Measurements:
  • Sweet Sugarplum card base – 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″ (or folded in half)
  • Basic Black layer – 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Shimmery White layer – 3-3/4″ x 5″

  1. I. LOVE. THIS. I “ahhhh”d when you pulled the block off the paper. What a great video and project!

  2. Great watercolor ombre technique. The water spritzing on the inked block really makes it work. Thank you for the tutorial!
    P.S. Love the Clean And Simple card layout as well.
