Beautiful Lemon Unity Watercolored Cards

Good day sweet crafters! Who would of thought lemons could be so pretty? I know I didn’t think so. When Unity released their {Stand Tall} kit last month, I thought to myself, “What in the world am I supposed to do with a lemon stamp?” But then, SumMore Fun release their current mood board challenge which got my creative juices flowing, finally knowing what to do with that lemon stamp.

To start with, I stamped my image and sentiment on to some Canson XL watercolor paper in Versafine black ink using my Tim Holtz stamping platform. I then watercolored it using Prima Watercolor Confections. After my image panel was all dry I attached it to a white card base using an atg tape gun. I finished it off by adding a few green sequins which I glued on with Ranger multi-medium matte.

For an easy peasy card I think this came out very pretty. I also learned that lemons really can be bright and beautiful.

I couldn’t decide on the sentiment for the inside of the card and decided to keep that pretty simple as well. I painted a piece of watercolor paper the same blue used for the background of the lemon and then attached it to the inside. That created a matte around the white card stock that I add it last.

Now, if you have this stamp set or something similar and I have inspired you in some way, go get crafty and then head over to the SumMore Fun mood board challenge and enter your creation. If you get picked you win a gift card and who doesn’t love free craft stuff. Also, it’s always exciting to win crafty things.


***** I created a group, “The Watercoloring Orchard“, and would love for you to join. It’s a place for all papercrafters to share any papercraft that they watercolored on. But it doesn’t have to be just the traditional transparent watercolors, it can be any medium that water was used with; like your inks and markers. I would love to get sponsors for the group and eventually host giveaways but I can’t do that until I have members, so please hop on over and click join. *****


Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy Crafting!
