Guest Designing for Craft Tangles –part II

Hello friends , continuing my coloring with liquid watercolors from Craft Tangles. I have couple of cards to share with you all. I love coloring floral images with large open spaces, which gives lot of scope to add details. So rather than searching for such stamps I decided to draw them myself.

 I drew tulips (taking reference from Pinterest) .Water-colored them using Poolside color liquid watercolor entirely, no other shade even for shadows, You can see how dark this color can be when undiluted.

For the leaves I have used Lemon tart, Evergreen and bit of Ripe plums liquid watercolors.I have used a stencil (Parquet- Neat and Tangled) to draw a pattern on card base and foam mounted the water-colored panel on it. The sentiment is from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy (Winnie & Walter).

Can you guess how many colors I have used to paint this card ? 3..4 ..5?? Nope I have used all seven colors from the release! They look beautiful together and not to forget the brightness.

I have scored some lines on lower part of cardbase and foam mounted the watercolored panel.(sorry for unclear photos ).
If you enjoy watercoloring then these liquid watercolors are must try .Do check them out !
Thank you for dropping by today .

Masculine Birthday card

Hello friends, I have a simple birthday card to share today. I know you must have seen such cards many times! I find this concept very apt especially for grown Ups for whom birthday is celebrated more virtually than in real. One is greeted through Calls, SMSs, FB and Whats App messages but very few actually meet and wish.

Coming to the card, I have used white gel pen and emboss it pen to draw and emboss the mobile and used various stamps for the messages.

The background has tone-on -tone stamping with Bold Numbers Stamp set (Happy Little Stampers).

Guest Designing for Craft Tangles

Hello friends!! If you are watercolor enthusiast like me then I have good news for you ! Recently, Indian brand ” Craft Tangles” came up with new liquid watercolors and guess what? I got to use them!Thanks a lot to Kyati (owner Craft Tangles) for giving me this opportunity to Guest Design.

 I have used different forms of watercolors like pencils, tubes, brush pens and the most common Distress inks .Each one of them have their own specialties and I wondered how different these liquid watercolors would be? It is my first time to work with liquid colors and totally loving them! They have released 7 colors which can be mixed easily to create variety of other colors.

The biggest USP of these colors is their saturation/concentration ,they are so vibrant that just one tiny drop goes long way .I haven’t used up even small drop after coloring all these flowers btw this tulip is from Craft Tangles stamp set “Just a note”.

I made a small note card with those lovely tulips. I stamped only part of the bunch masked it to stamp one more tulip.

These images are detailed and due to stamping with light ink I lost most of them! I have used ripe plums color for flowers and mix of lemon tart, poolside and evergreen for leaves

On this one I stamped the tulip bunch as it is and colored them using Soul mate, Lemon tart ,Autumn blaze and ripe plums for shadows.

I drew black strips with markers on the bg and layered a piece of gold foil beneath the watercolored panel. The sentiment is from same set.

 I used another stamp set “Happily ever” from CraftTangles January release for this card. Started by stamping the floral bunch repeatedly with grey ink on the card base and stamped it on watercolor paper separately.

Colors used are Soulmate, Evergreen , Lemon tart.Did you like these cards would love to know if you have a favorite .

Don’t count the years!

Isn’t  it a wonderful message(especially when the number of candles on cake keeps increasing ;) )

It is all stamping and no coloring card! The bold numbers, circles and dots are from Bold Number &Mix Mash set( Happy Little Stampers) while the sentiment is from Party Hangover set (Winnie & Walter.)

I have used cool colors of distress inks for stamping the numbers. Makes it good for guys !
