Water Colored Card

Hi Everybody,

Here is my latest purchase and it is Aqua Tints from Spectrum Noir and I have to say that I love them.

I have dabbled with oils and been a card maker for a good few years now but this is my latest foray into something new.

So the colors I have used on this card are from the Bright and Beautiful  Aqua Tints  and I bought them from Crafters Companion

I stamped and embossed my sentiment and then water colored over the top to give me the background.

I stamped and embossed the flowers in gold embossing powder and then used the same background colors to paint them.

The stamp and matching die set are from Heartfelt Creations and this is the Sunkissed Fleur  and I am very happy with the finished card.

It is bright and beautiful ... just as the paints I have used to create it ... and I will be playing with some of the other shades in the Aqua Tints again.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    I usually think I prefer pastels to strongly coloured cards but this is fantastic ! I love the vibrancy - it just feels so alive ! Simply gorgeous !

  9. Oh WOW! I've seen this product but resisted buying because I wasn't certain I'd like the way they would look but I'm so impressed! The colors are so vibrant and I love the gold embossed flowers offset against the water colors. Your card is stunning!

  21. Hi Christina
    The card is very striking and impressive. I don't think the aqua tints would be any good for me as I'n not very good at colouring. You make it look so easy
    Love & best wishes
