Hey paper crafters! It is freebie Friday yet again. This freebie is a really pretty set of printable watercolor card backgrounds. These were hand painted and are sized perfectly for an A2 card. You can do some hand lettering on top to make a set of really lovely cards.
I love the look of watercolors but it doesn’t always turn out for me when I try to do it on a greeting card. Either the paper is too yellow, warped or too textured for me to write on. So I set out to make a set of printable textures that would look great and eliminate all of the problems I have with doing it by hand.
The two textures that you get in this free download are exactly what I wanted. They print nice and bright on a non-textured cardstock so they are easy to write on. There is no warping so they work perfectly!
I recommend using your favorite brush markers over the top. You could also do a little faux calligraphy. Try some different blending and ombre techniques to create a unique look.
There are two watercolor textures included in the PDF. They have trim marks so you can cut them perfectly to fit your A2 sized card. The purple and blue texture looks great with an hombre design. The second design is a rainbow of colors that spans yellow, orange, pink, red, purple and blue. You can combine the rainbow watercolor texture with just about any color.
