Hobbybase Live Craft Along

Easy Watercolour Backgrounds

Hello everyone, earlier today I did my weekly Hobbybase Facebook Live and this week I showed you how to create fun and easy backgrounds by just using watercolour pens.

Watercolour Cards
Easy Water Colour Backgrounds

Using the fun Krafy Panda stamp set Fantastic Dragons from Hobbybase, these bright and colourful cards were lots of fun to make.



This is a great easy way to make backgrounds for anyone new to card making or if you have limited supplies.

Supplies used were…

Reeves Watercolour pencils.

Stazon Black Ink.

White embossing powder.

Clear embossing powder.

Strong Watercolour paper or heavyweight card stock.

Ribbon and sequins to decorate.

All my card bases are 6.1/2 x 4.1/2 and my mats are 6.1/4 x 4.1/4 which will give you a nice 1/4″ border.

Check out my Facebook live replay below to see how I made the backgrounds and put the cards together.

I do a Facebook live card class every Monday showing you different card styles and techniques.

If you would like to tune into these please head over to  Hobbybase and like their page and you will find all of my tutorials and a list of everything you will need to craft along live.



Enjoy your Monday.
