Forever Water Color Card

Hi Everybody,

Here is another of those water colored card with Twinkling H2.0s  and as requested by several of you I will do a video tutorial on this technique.

I know my ladies in the Wednesday card Class enjoyed  it a lot ... so watch this space ... it will be with you soon.

To this one I have added in some extra glitter by dabbing  with my finger some Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear  glue onto the card in random areas and sprinkling on the glitter

I also stamped and embossed the large flourish and painted in the leaves and again applied some glue and glitter to the swirls in the flourish.

I also added tiny pearls around some of the curves

The  "Forever"  sentiment from Spellbinders,  has been cut in gold several times and glued together

I have created the card base from gold card and embossed it to create texture.

There are some good tips for   storing these little pots of paint   on my website ... Card Making Magic ... and also many other things that you may find interesting too

The Create and Craft shows can  be watched on your PC  for up to seven days ... wherever you live .... here is the link for you Create & Craft TV 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  18. Another beautiful creation, Christina. I'm champing at the bit for the video so that I can see if I can master this as well. I have to say the thought of dabbing my glue covered finger all over the card is really quite appealing lol. x
