Hello! Today’s liquid watercolour projects took time, but they were oh! so satisfying! These are also my entries for inspiration for our current monthly challenge which is WATERCOLORS.

My first card is a shaker card. I created a galaxy watercolour background using Craftangles cold pressed watercolour paper and Craftangles liquid watercolours Eggplant, Autumn Blaze and Blackberry. I used ‘The royals’ sequin mix from Craftangles for the shaker. I really love how this one turned out!

I have a video at the end of this post, showing my process for this card as well as the others. It will also be available to view on the HNDMD Youtube channel.

For the second card, I decided to try some no line colouring.

I sttamped the images onto Craftangles watercolour paper using a light coloured distress ink.

I then used ‘soulmate’ liquid watercolour for the cup and ‘lemon tart’ and ‘Oh fudge’ to colour the croissants. The sentiment from a Christmas stamp set, seemed most appropriate.

You can watch my entire colouring in the video. It was so much fun to try this technique!

For the third card, I decided to make a ‘slimline card’. These seem to be the rage these days and I could fit my ballerinas onto this card really well.

To make this card, I die cut the ballerinas from a 3.5 x 7.5 panel of white cardstock. I cut the watercolour paper roughly to the same size (I knew I would trim it down later.). I then did a watercolour wash using ‘Eggplant‘ and ‘Autumn Blaze’ liquid watercolours.

Once the panel was fully dry, I cut it into panels to fit behind the individual diecut ballerinas, in a way to see the beautiful colour gradations. I adhered the watercoloured panels first and then adhered the entire panel using 3D foam tape to a folded card measuring 4″x8″. I couldn’t think of a sentiment so decided to splash some colour over the card to add some interest.

I did this after I finished making the video..so you wont see it there.

I really struggled with ideas for this post, but I’m so very satisfied with the way they turned out. I hope you enjoy the video and will give these techniques a try.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a great day!
