Spoonful of Watercolor Rainbow Card

From the kitchen to the mailbox, this Spoonful of Watercolor Rainbow Card is fun to make with just #stampsinkpaper and is super colorful! Find the easy tutorial here.

These spoons are dripping with beautiful colors!

And best of all? It’s easy to make! With just stamps, ink, and paper, these spoonfuls of rainbow come together quickly with minimal supplies.

Repeatedly stamping a single stamp on a project can make a fun design that then has a greater visual impact.

Likewise, the technique to make the drip pattern for this rainbow card is equally fun, and can look different every time. The uniqueness is what makes this card extra fun.

How to make a Spoonful of Watercolor Rainbow card:

Cut your cardstock:

  • Basic Black: 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, folded at 4 1/4”
  • Mango Melody: 5 1/4” x 4”
  • Watercolor Paper: 5” x 3 3/4”

Stamp the Spoons and Sentiment:

  • With Staz-On ink, stamp your six spoons along the top of the watercolor paper. To eye-ball the spacing, I first put a tiny pencil mark at the half-way point along the top at 2 1/2”.
  • Next, stamp the sentiment along the bottom of your watercolor paper.

Watercoloring Time!:

  • Starting with your first color, use your water painter and grab a small amount of ink from your ink pad. Color in center of the spoon.
  • Then, squeeze your water painter to get a larger drip from it. Drop it from the spoon center and tilt your paper so that it can drip down to the bottom of your watercolor paper. You can add ink as needed as well as drag the color around a bit to help the flow-y look.
  • Repeat this watercolor technique with the other colors of the rainbow! Then LET IT DRY.
  • Lastly, adhere your watercolored layer to the Mango Melody, then adhere that to your Basic Black card base.
