CrafTangles liquid Watercolors cards on watercolor and Yupo Paper by Neha Bhatt

Hello Friends,
Today, I am sharing my creations created using CrafTangles Liquid Water Colors. These are super vibrant, die based water colors. They retain their brightness even after drying. they are so saturated that a drop of pure color goes long way. They have released 7 colors as of now. I hope they will add more to their collection.

Aren’t they superb??

 Being water color they are easy to mix and make a new color. I tried some mixing …check the new colors I got…:)

Pardon my ugly handwriting & few spelling mistakes…:P but this was just for my reference and it turned out  good that I thought of sharing with you. That teal with Poolside and evergreen is my favorite.  You can change the tone by controlling one color over another in a mixture. I made one card using that color.

Here, I just made
gradient background on water color paper using a flat brush. Allow it to dry.
Emboss the floral image in white. The stamps are from 
Jane’s Doodles. I simply lift the colors by painting
inside the embossed image with water and lifting it with paper towel. Repeat
the process to get more contrast.

I also made some
backgrounds while playing with it.
Check this short
video.
 

I just sprayed
water on water color paper and dropped liquid colors on them. It is so much fun
to see those interesting patterns it creates!

dried.

I cut the first
one and made it into two cards using CrafTangles Hug Me
stamp set.

Next, I tried
these colors as a coloring medium for stamped image. For that I have used
Jane’s Doodles Magnolia set. I love these flowers and thought they are perfect
to color them with these vibrant colors.

I have used
Soulmate and Ripe plum to color flowers and Evergreen and poolside for diecut
leaves.
I am in awe of
these colors. Can’t tell you how bright they are. 
Now, next
experiment is interesting as it is first for me too. I tried these colors on
YUPO paper. If you don’t know, YUPO is a synthetic paper which feels like
plastic but it is mat and kind of new substrate to work with. I use it
extensively for my alcohol ink arts. 
Let’s see how I
used it with liquid water colors.

I pour little bit
of highly diluted color on yupo paper and blow dried it by moving the hair
dryer in circular motion around edges of the puddle. 
This is what it
looks like…

One more
interesting property of yupo is that you can lift inks or colors very easily.
It will stain the paper a little but you can wipe it clean with water.
Check what I
did…

I I Painted the yupo with diluted Ripe
Plum color. Let it dry. Lift the color with baby wipe through stencil to give
that bleached effect. The only thing with yupo is you have to seal your work or
it will easily come off. I use Kamar Varnish by Crylon. You can try spray
varnishes available at your local art store. 

I posted this card a while back. For this i just made some circles
with these colors, die cut them and arranged in eye pleasing manner.
Aren’t these colors just awesome?

I hope you like
my experiments and projects. If you are looking for bright water colors, you
can go for these without a trace of doubt. An as I write this post, they have
released some new shades …Yaay….so stay tuned for the next episode of fun.
Thank you so much
