Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Water Colour Wednesday - Altenew Persian Motifs

Hi Everybody,

The lovely stamp is from Altenew and is the Persian Motifs.

I used the new Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Pens that I bought last week.

This card is an A2 size

I coloured the flowers on water coloured card and then used the matching die to cut them out.

I bought both of mine from Sevenhills Crafts  which is a UK company

The pens are a pleasure to work with and the colour spreads really well because they have " Real Brush" ends.

Over the top of the colour I added in Wink of Stella clear glitter pen and that adds the sheen that you can see in the picture.

The second card is a 5x7 and I have used Grate Effect from Spellbinders for the background and both are bright and cheerful cards

More tomorrow ...
 Hugs xx

  11. Morning, Christina,
    What stunning cards! I love the stamps you've used. I really appreciate the fact that more stamp sets are coming along with matching die sets. Wouldn't it be great though if they were all in one package. I guess that then the people who only want the stamps wouldn't be too happy to have to pay the extra lol. The colours are really vibrant and I'm now lusting after a set of the Zig pens...I think a win on the lottery is needed before I can get a set though lol. I do have the Wink of Stella clear pen on my Amazon wish list though so that's a start lol.
    I'm meant to be going to the cinema this arvo but the black cloud is getting even blacker so I think I'm going to have to cancel, which is a shame as today was the only early showing for the week. I'll have to wait for the DVD to come out I guess. I'll spend the day making a banana cake and trying to sort out my craft room instead I guess...what fun!!
    Happy Wednesday.
