Here’s what I made for today:
I’ve been wanting to do some coloring… so I got out several of my Aqua Pigments and Watercolor Brushes and went to town with one of these floral panels! What I love about these card panels is not only are they all gorgeous, but I love that the lines on the images are a bit raised as if embossed which helps with the watercolor process.
As you can see, I’ve only used half of my card panel cut diagonally on my card. So after coloring up the panel, I thought it was a nice way to cut the panel in half and then still have another panel left over to create another card with later! So there’s a tip for extended more life out of your card panels!
Here’s a closer view of my watercolor and the pretty shimmer from the Aqua Pigments! So as you can see, I also did some foiling! I wasn’t sure if these panels would foil correctly or not, but as you can see only a portion of the image foiled. I was fine with that as it still adds a pretty sparkle to my card.
I did take the “hello” die and cut that from cardstock and then added some glue over it with the Deco Foil adhesive pen and then foiled over it in my laminator with some Deco Foil Rose Gold Transfer Sheets. Love the look of the foiling and how it turned out!
For my card, I attached the watercolor cut panel over a piece of black cardstock that I also cut diagonally with the panel and then attached it over a piece of very heavyweight white cardstock. Then I attached my foil die cut sentiment across the card and added some Acrylic Bubbles randomly over the card. I finished it with some Nuvo Dew Drop accents as well.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today! I appreciate you stopping by!
