Good morning everyone,wow! Monday already where did the weekend go ,boy time certainly flies when you having fun so I must have been having a blast as it was a full weekend of prep for me and my team mates.
Today i am sharing a card created for Tonic Studios Nuvo Water Colour Pencils launching this evening at 6pm on Hochanda with the lovely Paula.
The pencils are beautifully presented and contain 12 pencils in each set one set is Skin tones/ Hair and the other set is called Brilliantly Vibrant.
If you have never coloured before water colouring is the best place to start as it's so forgiving if you go over the lines just apply a little water with your water brush and take the colour away ,you can add layers of colour getting light and shade and you will really enjoy what you are doing, I find it very relaxing.
Materials needed to create this card:-
Nuvo Water colour pencils skin/ Hair tones
Nuvo Water colour pencils Brilliantly Vibrant
Nuvo glitter drops - Aquatic mist
Nuvo Water brush pens
Tim Holtz stamping Platform
Nuvo ink blending sponges
Craft perfect water colour card
Nuvo Black Hybrid ink Pad
Craft perfect Kraft card
Memory album maker die set
Papers from your craft stash
Marmalades world stamp sets
Happy Birthday Banner & Stamp set
Vintage photo distress ink
Die cutting Machine - Tangerine
Base card stock whit 300gsm
The card base is cut from the largest die in the memory maker album set from the decorative set you need to die cut two the same size then using a score tool place about 1" score line across the top of your card ,this is going to form the hinge to attach the front panel of your card so you now have a beautiful shaped card blank.then add your layers cutting down in size with craft perfect Kraft card and your pattern papers you will have ,I was thinking of a teddy bears picnic Birthday when I made this card who doesnt like a teddy bear.
The layer you die cut to stamp is cut using the craft perfect water colour card this is the perfect card to water colour on.
Now using your Tim Holtz platform or stamping block ,stamp the Teddy stamp from Marmalade's world by gently taking the ink pad to the stamp and gentlly tapping the stamp until the stamp is covered evenly with the ink . Then the next step is to colour the image adding colour as you go and blending the colours with a water brush pen and just keep adding colour until your happy with the finished result,with the vintage photo distress ink distress the edges of your stamped topper by applying a little ink to a nuvo ink sponge and in a circular motion just ink the edges this is best done on a glass mat.
Marmalades world is a stamp and die set so you need to stamp the rosette and party hat onto the watercolour card then place the die onto the stamped images and die cut then these are coloured with the pencils and added to the Teddy on 3D foam pads.
To finish the card add the Stamped Birthday Banner and add a couple of Nuvo glitter drops.
