As seen on 9 Best Annie's Kit Clubs Subscription Boxes.

The June 2020 theme is “Geometric Watercolor”. The card making technique used in this month’s box is “Watercolor Resist”.

Here's are first look of what we got in this month's card making kit.

This card making includes:

Watercolor Palette with 21 Colors  

Watercolor Brush

Self-Cling Rubber Stamps – 8 in total

Gold and Clear Sequins

Watercolor Resist Paper and Card Stock

Here's a closer look at the watercolor resist paper. Using this kind of paper will be a first for me!

White Pre-Scored Cardstock and Envelopes (8 each)

You will also need the Cardmaker Tool Kit (which is included with your first shipment and has a bone folder, stamp block, ruler, etc.), scissors or a paper cutter, a black stamp pad or black marker, adhesive, and foam adhesive dots.

Our favorite paper cutter is this Fiskars Rotary Trimmer and favorite adhesive to use is Tombow Mono Adhesive Applicator. We also like StazOn ink pads for black ink. 

Techniques Used for Watercolor Painting and Resist

As suggested, I used a piece of cardboard behind each card that I colored with watercolor. The recommended instructions were to “paint” each card with clear water, and then to apply the watercolor paint.

The watercolor paper will resist the water color paint in some cases. We used paper towel to remove any excess color that appeared on the “resist” portion of each of these papers.

The watercolor brush made it so much easier to apply the watercolor paint. We used one of these brushes in with one of our previous Annie's card making kits.

I'm going to share the completed cards – eight in total!

Watercolor Triangle Geometric Cards

The triangle watercolor resist cards were super easy to paint. 

This is the card that the instructions suggested. I really like the rainbow-esque nature of this card. I applied the “Thanks” flag with foam adhesive.

Using the same triangle paper, I used a grey, pink, and blue color scheme to create a “Happy Birthday” Card. As you can see, I need to buy some new black ink!

Broken Glass Watercolor Cards

This broken glass watercolor resist paper has a really interesting pattern. I made two “Hello” cards in different colors. 

The first card I made had a blue, green, and yellow color scheme. I really like how artistic these cards look!

The second card with this paper had a pink, purple, yellow, and orange palette. I used the clear sequins to decorate the border of the “Hello” stamp. 

Hexagon Watercolor Cards

These hexagon watercolor cards were probably the most fun to paint! I made a “Celebrate!” card and “Thank You” card. 

I made this “Celebrate” hexagon card using the instructions included in this kit. Having instructions helps because I sometimes don't feel super creative and just want to tell someone to tell me how to decorate a card! 🙂

The “Thank You” hexagon card had a slightly different color scheme. I love how the messiness of overlapping watercolor creates artistic interest. 

Gold Frame Watercolor Cards

These gold frame watercolor cards were the easiest to make. 

This is the card I made using the instructions. The gold sequins add a little extra bling!

Then my pre-teen daughter suggested I make the next card in a galaxy color scheme – pink, blue, and black. I do like how this card turned out!

After letting the cards dry overnight, I trimmed the watercolor backgrounds by 1/8 inch, and then adhered them to the pre-scored card stock. 

In Summary

I really loved how these watercolor resist cards from Annie's CardMaker Kit-of-the Month Club turned out. The colors were bright and sunny, and easy for me to customize to colors that I like. I will definitely use these cards for upcoming birthdays and thank yous.

The watercolor resist method was a new technique that I haven't tried before. I loved how the resist color created contrast between the different watercolors that I was using. I found that the resist portion of the papers more forgiving if you are blending colors when you don't really want to!
