Hello crafty friends! Concord & 9th has been released pigment based liquid watercolours this month and all 22 colours are truly, truly fantastic! I made colour charts to make it easier for you to see as below:
They are so nice warm colours!
These green colours make me want to keep making autumn cards. So gorgeous!!
Fantastic, aren’t they?!!
These 22 liquid watercolours are really intense and concentrated by themselves but it’s easy to make various shades of the same colour by adding or reducing the amount of water I used on my brush. And they blend extremely well.
For my snowy winter night background, I used the Peacock & the Midnight liquid watercolour. I just painted Midnight onto the bottom of watercolour panel without water, then painted Peacock mixed with a little water, and then added more water to Peacock and Midnight on top of the panel as shown in the picture. And the woman holding the Christmas tree, I stamped it from the Festive Friends set using pigment black ink, and then coloured it with liquid watercolours.
Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I added opaque white ink all around the panel. For the sentiment, I used them in the Festive Friends die set.
Hello crafty friends! Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp DieCember 2020 Release Blog Hop. I’m super-duper excited to be a part of this fabulous blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Amanda Korotkova’s blog you are on the right track!
For my first card, I used the Turtle Doves die set as my main supply. Oh, isn’t this couple so lovely?!! I die cut the turtle doves from watercolour paper first, and then ink blended them with several Distress inks. I also die cut mistletoe from green apple cardstock, ribbon & tiny hearts from lipstick red cardstock. I used glitter gold cardstock for beaks because it’s Christmas, lol!
For my second card, I used the Paper Hugs & the Detail Bohemian Plate dies. I started by making a beautiful patterned panel using the Detail Bohemian Plate die. I then made circle patterns (like the first card) with the Circle Masks stencils and blue coloured Distress inks.
For the sentiment, I used the Paper Hugs die – it is so adorable sentiment die!!
