Achieve Amazing Watercolour Effects in Your Design Work With Ease!

We’re so excited to introduce our totally massive watercolour pack, which is the result of our collaboration with the talented team at 8 Red Fish Creative.

Our community has shaped this pack. We’ve listened carefully to your feedback, and spent months working closely with 8 Red Fish Creative. The result is a watercolour pack that we’re truly proud of. Rather than shopping around for various watercolour elements, we wanted to bring you one comprehensive collection to cover all your watercolour design needs.

This pack is so easy to use you can literally drag and drop in graphics, effects, textures and create an entire composition in seconds rather than hours!

This collection is perfect for creating branding work, logos, invites, packaging designs, website headers and so much more!

Here’s a look at what’s included:

  • 66 beautiful, abstract watercolour graphics, ready to be dragged and dropped into your designs.
  • 32 high quality watercolour brushes available at both regular and high resolution up to 5,000 pixels!
  • 10 colourful seamless paper textures and backgrounds (also available in seamless pattern format).
  • A huge library of 167 hand-painted watercolour shapes, including stars, moons, circles, lines, squares, parallelograms, arrows, crosses, drips, rectangles, triangles and more.
  • 22 gorgeous, high resolution washes, perfect for use as backgrounds and textures.
  • 92 solid vector shapes.
  • 10 amazing full colour watercolour vectors, scalable to any size.
  • 10 easy to use watercolour styles, for adding stunning effects to your shapes, text and other design elements.

    We’re totally crushing on the video….Xiaojing loves the clever usage of the Tom avatar! There’s no way you can refuse the Little Tom avatar!!!!

      Hey Justin,

    You’re really making me establish love/hate relationship with you people, in which hate equals too damn much love!

    Keep with the amazing work!!

      Hey Tomas,

  3. Rebecca Mooneyham says:

    This is awesome! I just started working on a new website yesterday that is going to have watercolor styling. I love having these watercolor designs in one place instead of having to look through all of my resources. This couldn’t have come at a more perfect time!

    Will all future Deals come with an introduction video??

    Sure hope so.

    This one is great and thanks for the launch price.

    • Ben Neeves says:

      Hey Tina,

      Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback, I really appreciate it 🙂 It was a lot of fun putting this video together so I will certainly putting myself forward to creating more videos for future items!

      Thank you for your purchase, I hope your new watercolour items will be of great use to you! Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any other questions. I’m always happy to help!

    Very good - 4 starsVery good - 4 starsVery good - 4 starsVery good - 4 starsVery good - 4 stars

    Really love the watercolours – thank you for putting it together.

    I’m not a graphic designer, but a minister who does a certain number of church flyers, PowerPoints etc. Resources at a good price are just great – this price is excellent, so I bought it.

    One suggestion, if I might. I use Illustrator as I’m happiest in the vector world, and hardly ever use Photoshop. So I’d love to see more AI brushes and styles in such packages.

    Keep up the good work. My only reservation with DC is that you do seem to be leading most of us into temptation.

    • Justin Greene says:

      Fergus,

      I’m glad you find the pack useful and probably in a way we didn’t think about when we collaborated with the DesignCuts crew on the pack.

      Believe it or not, when I talked Xiaojing into starting 8 Red Fish Creative, she thought I was nuts. Even though she used to own a web designing firm where she focused on sales and the big picture and left the programming/coding to employees, she just could not imagine herself as a graphic designer. Lo and behold, a couple of years go by she’s more into it than I am. 🙂

      Thanks,
      Justin

      PS: We swear we really didn’t mean to lead anyone into temptation…..but I generally find it on my own though!

    Another excellent addition to “The DC Shop!”

    While I am certain no judge would accept an “Addiction to Design Cuts Deals” defense, should my creditors ever drag me to court, I simply cannot afford to miss the initial discount!

    A wonderful Watercolor bundle!

    P.S. Excellent decision to go with adding a video highlighting the toolkit. I agree with Tina West and Justin Greene. It adds an extra creative – and Fun – flair to the marketing of the Deal.

    P.P.S. Also, effective way of adjusting to the small amount of less than positive feedback from the last deal in “The Shop.” I didn’t see this one coming and was very happily surprised when I got the Email. (This deal, however, is worth someone tooting the horn about! So was the last one!) 😉

    Keep’ em coming, y’all!

      P.P.P.S. THANK YOU for also splitting the kit up into smaller sized downloads for those of us with an ISP that tends to not play nice with large multi-gig sized downloads.

      • Carol Sweeney says:

        Hey Louis,

        Thank you for tooting the horn on this one and for your awesome feedback on the watercolour kit! We really appreciate hearing your thoughts on this and that you enjoyed Ben’s video! Ben had a lot of fun creating it and he will be really pleased to get your feedback!

        Thanks for your support with our store products and that is great you are grabbing it on discount :). We hope you get lots of use out of it!

        Please do let me know if you have any issues with downloading the kit with your ISP or with any of your bundles) and I can try and help!

      We are mega fans of watercolours as well which is why we were so keen to organise this kit with the awesome team over at 8RedFish :).

      Thanks for sharing the tip about the brushes as well- I know some of our community will find this really helpful!

    Living soul into artwork

    Watercolor is always eyecatching, not only they add some fresh feel into ones work, but also project some life and fluid feeling as the artwork itself imbued with living soul.

    Watercolor was an important deciding factor for me to choose deals on your 19 deals of your 2nd birthday.

    And, i am very glad, this watercolor bundle of yours are beautiful, even more beautiful than some of the packs of your previous bundles, and to get this for 10 usd, i trully feel guilty to purchase this, its like i become a thief and steal this ( luckily i read the extended license term, if not The guilty feeling would remain)

    Whoever, see this and not grabbing this instantly, is out of their mind

    • Carol Sweeney says:

      Hey Vinsensius,

      Thank you for your beautiful words and i love your description on watercolours- just lovely!

      It is fantastic to hear that you are as big a fan of watercolours as we are and we have been so excited to launch this kit for you and the rest of the community!

      You can definitely use these guilt free Vinsensius and please do feel free to share anything you create as we would love to see what you create

    Ugh! There goes my Starbuck’s double black-eye mochachino with double whipped foam… I’m sure though these watercolours taste just as good…. 😉

    • Justin Greene says:

      Mike,
      I’m sure the paints us used in making the pack won’t taste so great compared to a cup of Starbuck’s (especially PSL)…but you can definitely create some awesome cups for your local indepdent java hangout. 🙂

    Great kit guys, any chance you could add in a legacy version of the brushes for earlier versions of Photoshop?

    • Ben Neeves says:

      Hey Peter,

      Thanks for getting in touch with your kind words. I hope these resources have been useful to your projects, thank you so much for your purchase!

      Thank you kindly for your suggestion! Whilst we don’t have a legacy version of the brushes available currently, I can certainly get in touch with the creatives at 8RedFish to see if we can feature this in a future update of the pack. If you had any more suggestions for what you would like to see in a future update please do let me know, I would love to hear from you!

      Thanks again for taking the time to offer your suggestion and if there is ever anything I could assist you with please do get in touch. I’m always happy to help!

  27. Jessica says:

    I’m looking into buying this, and I have Photoshop Elements 14. So just to check – I would be able to use everything in this, except the brushes, vector shapes (but the other shapes would work), and the layers. Thank you!

    • Justin says:

      Jessica,
      Xiaojing and I designed the pack in collaboration with Design Cuts. We’re not PS Element users, but I think you should be able to use the brushes – maybe not the large 5000 px versions, but the 2500 px versions should be okay. About the vector shapes and layers styles, i can’t say. Hopefully other PS Elements users can chime in.

        Well, like Fergus Semler, I’m not a graphic designer either. So having all the Adobe apps is not really cost effective. I second Fergus’ motion. Having all the resources work in Illustrator would be brilliant.

    Hello!
    First thing first, this is an awesome toolkit, good job!! I also usually use Illustrator instead of Photoshop, so if there is any way you could make actions for AI that would be great! Is there a good way to quickly change the vector into the washes’ color in AI?

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Christhea,

      Thanks so much for the awesome suggestion. I love the idea, and have passed it on to the team. We’ll definitely try to work on some Ai swatches. 🙂

      Thanks so much for getting in touch. I can certainly help you with your query.

      I am really sorry but I’m afraid that we do not work with Canva on our side so I am unable to test this on my side for you. I have done some research in to what resources will work for you in this software so I am sending you a quick email with some more details about this.

      I hope it helps, TG, and please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any other questions. I am always happy to help!

    I am so excited to use this set. I know this is a dumb question for you to have to answer but I am having trouble changing the color of the watercolor. I know it is something so simple that I’m missing like a setting but I am finally giving up and just asking. Oh and also, I wanted to give you six stars and it kept crossing out the first one.
    Thank You!

      This one hasn’t been featured in a previous bundle however water colours are very popular so you may have seen something similar before 🙂

      Rest assured any Marketplace items that are featured in a bundle will always be listed in the item description on the deal page.

      Hey Beth,

      Thanks for contacting us and I can definitely help out!

      So the brushes in this one are for PS only but I have asked Lizzy, our product curator to keep an eye out for some AI brushes that we can hopefully add soon! Please do let me know if you come across any specific AI items Beth that you would love for us to try and feature as we are always keen to make our bundles and Marketplace items as bespoke as we can :).

    i would like to get watercolor design,
    mockup scene creates
    watercolor butterfly
    wood textures
    garden vs meadow
    the total is 71 dollars.
    what kind of special discount do i get? i am wanting to purchase 5 at one time. do i get another discount on total price? 50% off?

    • Carol Sweeney says:

      Hey John,

      Thanks so much for your comment and query and that sounds great about the items you are after! So the way our Marketplace works is that if you choose 5 or more items, you will get our exclusive ‘Build a Bundle’ discount of 50% off the listed price when you checkout. This is the maximum discount that you will get on your Marketplace items- we would be unable to offer an additional discount on this John as this will be quite a large discount on the RRP of these items and further discount would affect the integrity of the designer’s work. However as well as the offered 50% with 5 or more of your items, you get our single user, extended licence as well as the lifetime support of the Design Cuts team to help you so hopefully that helps as well with the half price offers :).

      If you do have any other questions, please do let me know! I am always here and happy to help :).

    Just purchased the pack! Love it so far. I’m working with the ’80+ vector shapes’ in Illustrator, it says that you can ‘easily change the colour of your vectors’ and it looks like it retains that watercolour feel. I can’t quite figure out how to do this? Whenever I change the colour of a vector it seems to just be a block colour.

    Thanks! Olly
