Faux Watercolor Galaxy Card

Make a Faux Watercolor Galaxy Card using this easy technique. With just a few basic supplies and this short video, you can create your own out-of-this-world cards today!

This Faux Watercolor Technique is easy, almost fool-proof, and doesn’t require any specialized products. Not even watercolor paper!

For being so easy, I love that it creates this fun and colorful look! The new (and in my opinion under-rated) To The Moon stamp set from Stampin’ Up was perfect for this project!

Water-based ink markers are great because with a little bit of water, they blend their edges together. This look, no matter what colors I have used, always reminds me of a galaxy. So next I had to make a galaxy card using my current favorite stamp set!

For my background, I applied Coastal Cabana, Misty Moonlight, and Gorgeous Grape ink, which gave me the right amount of light and dark for a galaxy.

How to do the Faux Watercolor Technique for a Galaxy Card:

Cut your cardstock:

  • Basic White Cardstock:
    • 4 1/4” x 11”, scored and folded at 5 1/2” for your cardbase.
    • 4” x 5 1/4” for your working layer.
  • That’s it for cutting; I know! I love simple cards!
