I have used the newly released Craftangles liquid watercolours to make the cards below!!
These watercolours are so amazing…they are beautifully vibrant and just don’t fade!!
For the cards below I have used them in three different ways and they look just beautiful!

For the first card, I stamped the floral image from the Craftangles ‘Happily Ever After’ stamp set on Craftangles white card stock. I then used Craftangles liquid watercolours (Autumn blaze and Red paprika) to colour the image. I then smooshed some Craftangles ‘Lemon tart’ liquid watercolour onto the background.
I then die cut the Cross in the middle of the floral image, added 4 layers of coloured die cuts to create dimension and inlaid the die cuts back into the negative space to create an eclipse card. I added a sentiment and some sequins and finished the card.

For the second card, I used a beautiful die from Stampin’up to die cut this filigree cross out of gold mirror cardstock. I die cut the wreath using a Lawn Fawn die and then smooshed some Craftangles ‘Evergreen’ liquid watercolour on the wreath. I love how it is partially coloured but still creates so much pop!
I created a background using a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

For the third card, I used the Craftangles ‘Poolside’ and ‘Evergreen’ liquid watercolours to create a watercolour wash panel. I then die cut and dry embossed a white panel and adhered it to the watercolour panel using 3D foam tape. I then added some Craftangles clear sequins to finish the card.
