Jessie Banks always brings the color to her stamped images, but today, she’s joining us here on the blog to share something a little bit different. Color still plays a major part in her look but this time, it’s softer, looser, and the result of lots of experimentation and play.

Die-cut elements provide the perfect opportunity to try your hand at watercolor. When you’re simply creating swaths of color, adding depth and texture to an element without concerning yourself with “staying in the lines,” you have much more freedom to hone your skills and practice your technique.

Handmade card from Jessie Banks featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

With the initial plan to create a snowy winter scene, from conception to execution, this card was quite the journey. Jessie’s documented her thought process, coloring, and assembly in a video today — be sure to check it out to see how she adapted and overcame challenges to create the charming finished look you see here!

Big thanks to Jessie for joining us today! She’ll be back again tomorrow with another look so make sure you check in to see what she’s done. And if she’s inspired you to do some watercolor yourself, tag #mftstamps when you upload your projects so we can check them out.
