Always Believe - Uniko -Floral Peony

 Hi Friends,

Made a card using my favorite Peony from Uniko Studio. 

Watercolored using my new Karin brushmarkers Pro.

Over to my card,

  • This time tried some loose watercoloring style. The organic styled bg is made using acrylic block and watered down inks.
  • Stamped Uniko Peony using Antique Linen DI onto Canson Montval Watercolor paper.
  • WaterColored using my new KarinMarkers Pro.
  • Splattered white acrylic liberally over the finished piece.
  • Trimmed the edges to fit A2 sized cardbase.
  • Stamped the sentiment from Uniko Spring Botanical Daffodil stampset.
  • Matted onto A2 sized top fold Kraft cardbase.
  • Added few clear dew droplets as accents to finish off the card.
Hope you like it!

Happy Crafting!

Kindness : Floral card

 Hiya Crafty peeps,

Back here again with a floral card. Current challenges in blogland inspired me to do today's card.

Made use of a new Sizzix Embossing folder : Botanicals, a birthday gift from my dearest crafty pal, Jasleen.

Tried watercoloring over it, as I absolutely love the way the colors bleed and blend on Watercolor cardstocks. 

Karin markers are my birthday gift from my DH and this card demanded using it. It's so magical to see the way it works beautifully on Canson Montval watercolor paper. 

It's my first time watercoloring over Embossing folder. 

Over to my card,

  • Dry embossed the watercolor cardstock using Sizzix Botanicals Embossing Folder.
  • Watercolored it using my new crafty stash addition : Karin markers. Love using it!!
  • Added white paint splatters over the panel.
  • Trimmed to fit A2 sized top fold cardbase.
  • Added the Hero Arts Kindness sentiment vellum strip over the embossed panel.
  • Mounted onto black A2 sized cardbase.
  • Few clear dew droplets added as accents.
Hope you like it!

 Hiya Crafters,

Wishing you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year 2021.

Am sharing my first post for this year. As always, Love watercoloring and Love floral stamps.

Recently Jane's doodles had drew a digital stamp to raise money for the Earthquake struck areas of Croatia. Kindly check their website and extend your generous help towards the noble cause. 

I did my part of buying this digital stamp called Hope and gonna spread the word as maximum as I could by my card making and watercoloring.

Over to my card,

  • Printed the digi on Canson montval watercolor paper.
  • Colored using Daniel smith watercolors.
  • Fussy cut and kept aside.
  • Took a Grey A2 sized cardbase. 
  • Topped with a white panel which was stenciled with Wendy Vechi Embossing paste using a TH stencil flourishes.
  • Splattered the left over paints over stenciled paste once dried.
  • Added the fussy cut florals using Foam adhesives and adhesive tapes for dimension.
  • Splattered generously with white acrylic paint.
  • Added few clear dew droplets as accents.
  • Took TH small talk and added to white strip and mounted on the card panel using foam adhesive.
