Typically I will make a bunch of cards at a time, that way I can keep them on hand for when the occasion arises. There's never time to make a card the instant it's needed, so having a stash is the perfect solution.

Then let the watercolor wash dry completely. You can use a hair dryer to speed up the drying process...but it has just a little bit of water on it, so it doesn't take too long.

Then ink up the rubber stamp or use a Tombow Drawing Pen to draw your own flower or design. I had this cute stamp on hand, so when I was coloring on my palette I knew where to put the pinks or green scribbles.

Use Momento ink to stamp an image on a watercolor wash paper.

Press the rubber stamp on the watercolor paper. I love using clear stamps because I can see exactly where I am placing it. Watercolor paper has some texture to it so press firmly and all over the top of the stamp without rocking it to get a good impression.

Then cut the paper to size, 4X5.25 inches. This will fit perfectly on a half sheet of cardstock folded in half. Also known as A2 size.

Tombow recently released the ABT PROs, a line of alcohol ink markers and they are fantastic! Alcohol ink markers are amazing. They are not great for hand lettering...but they are excellent for blending. They blend flawlessly with no marker streak lines left behind. They are super pigmented and come in an array of colors. They come in very pale colors too, which is awesome for light skin tones, hair, or just little details.
