DIY: Watercolour + Washi Tape Cards

I’ve been loving experimenting with watercolour lately to make handmade cards. It’s so pretty and perfect for spring! These are really easy to do and although they look fancy, they’re quite simple!

Supplies:

  • Watercolour set + brush
  • Bowl with water
  • Paper
  • Washi Tape

I’m using washi tape becuase it’s the least sticky of my tape choices. I want something that will come off easily and not rip the paper. Make a few stripes or whatever pattern you’d like with the tape. Don’t press it down too hard, you want a little colour bleeding.

Then apply your watercolour. I tried to mix similar colours together.

I also make some triangles by overlaping the tape.

I think this H may be my favourite one.

Let it dry completely and then carefully take off the tape. Personalize your card on the back with a message.
