Hello blogging friends! Today, I have another watercolor card to share with you. I am loving doing the watercolor cards so I hope you re getting some inspiration from them as well. :)
For this card I started with a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media paper. Then I used some of the stamps from the CR-05032 Meadow Circles Clear Stamps along with VersaMark ink and Tonic Studios - NUVO Glod Embossing Powder and a heat tool to heat set the images. Then I used several colors of the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens - Light Blue, Cobalt Blue, Pale Green, May Green, Light Green, Persian Green, Turquoise Green pens, I started by going from the lightest blue, then in to the green and then finished with the blue greens. Once the watercolor was dry I used a paint brush with clean water to add water droplets. I let the water droplets sit for a few seconds and then blotted with a paper towel. I used the heat to to dry the paper and repeated the water droplets a few times until I was happy with the look of the background.
After the watercolor piece was all dry then I used the NUVO Medium Glue Pen to add adhesive on the flower and leaves inside the circle images. For the flower I used NUVO Sheer Glitter Turquoise and for the leaves I used NUVO Sheer Glitter Olive Green. Once the glue had a few minutes to set and dry I removed the excess glitter. For some embellishments I added some Cartwright Sequins - 8 mm, 10 mm, Bahama Blue SC Iris, 3 mm Gold Flowers, 4 mm Gold. I used Ranger - Multi Medium Matte to adhere the sequins.
To finish off the card I used VersaMark ink to stamp the hello sentiment from the CR-05032 Meadow Circles Clear Stamps and then I used the same gold embossing powder and heat set the sentiment. Then I cut a flag tail on one end of the paper and adhered it to the from of the watercolor piece. I used white craft foam and scor-tape to adhere the watercolor base to a white cardstock mat and then to the aqua card base.
I just love the look of watercolor with the water droplets!
Thanks so much for stopping by today for another card share and I will have another project coming real soon!
Have a fantastic day!
