Water Colored Card

Hi Everybody,


Thank you so much for your support on C&C yesterday and for sending in your emails.

It is much appreciated even though not many got read out. 

This plain and simple card today is water colored and the butterfly is a stamp from   Sheena Douglass

I have used  Twinkling H2.0s  for this technique and the effect is really sparkly once the paint has dried

The butterfly has been stamped and embossed with gold  twice and then also painted 

I layered the two together along the body line and curved the wings upwards for effect.

Apart from the stamped and gold embossed sentiment and the gold layers under the card there is no other embellishment on the card.

Water coloring is a subject that I  covered with my Wednesday Card Class and we messed about with  paint for some really pretty effects

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  8. Good morning Christina, I love the effects of this card, and for some reason I have never seen( to my knowledge seen how to do it). So as you have already been asked if you will be making a video on "How to" I'll await your reply. Enjoyed the show yesterday and I will tape today's just in case, so I can watch after our St George's day celebrations. Enjoy your day X Ros

  18. Good Morning Christina :) This is a Very Beautiful card this morning! I love the colors! Even though you indicate it is a "plain and simple" card, there is much more work involved here than a quick glance might reveal. You have such a wide spectrum of creativity you share and I am so thankful. Is there a video in the making on this one? Caught your two C & C shows and you were brilliant! Your cards were just amazing and the techniques you shared were wonderful! Thank you again for all you do for us. Enjoy a beautiful, sunny, snowless day… ours is finally gone… again.
