Messy Water Colour

Hi Everybody,

This card was a whole lot of fun to make .... messy but never the less fun at the same time.

Arteza products where perfect for this job and their water colour card is really sturdy quality and will not buckle as you add the water.

So for this I added my sentiment to the bottom of the water colour card panel and then covered it with masking tape.

I added the stamp to the lid of my stamping platform  and with the Real Brush Markers I used the colours that I wanted and brushed them over the actual stamp.

I did the flower part fist and I spritzed it with water and  closed the door to transfer the image across. 

Once I opened the door the colour was not deep enough so I repeated the process, and I also spritzed the card itself too. It was satisfying to see the colour run in the water and you have no control over it which is part of the fun. Just let it flow !!

The process  was done again with green for the leaves and then, because I am impatient, I dried it with my heat tool.  

I added it to my card front and glued a strip of black and another of purple down the side. These I wrapped with Bakers Twine and tied a little bow.

For this second card I did the same thing but then used a circle die to cut the shape.

I added this A2 sized one to some glitter card and added the circular sentiment alongside it..

They are different and although messy I think they are quite effective and I would be happy to get a card like this for any occasion.

 More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  4. Another different technique. Not one for me as I'm not into paint but I'm sure many of your followers will be trying it.

  5. Hi Christina
    Love the effect on these cards but am not very confident with watercolours. May give it a try and see what I end up with
