Watercolour Card Tutorial

Hello friends,

Being a design team member in Catchy Challenges, it's my turn to post a tutorial today on Watercolours. Tutorial - me - it's time consuming. 

Bribed myself with some craft goodies for making it :)

Here is my card

Here is the watercolour card making tutorial 

Water  - The transparent liquid when gels with colour, it creates wonder.

Here are the materials required:
1. Cardstock
2. Normal Paint Brush
3. Camilin Watercolour cakes
4. Embellishments to decorate
5. Water sprayer

Steps to follow:
1. Take the cardstock and spray the water over it and don’t overdo just saturate the paper with water.

2. Mount the colour on the brush and just give one to two strokes, the colour will diffuse on the paper.

3. Since I will be using this a background, I have used different colours.

4. Then sprinkle the colours(mount the colours on the brush) on a plastic sheet and press the stamped image over the sprinkled colours; you will get a background like this.

5. I have attached the stamped image to the coloured background and mounted on white cardstock.
6. Embellish the card as you wanted, i have embellished it with pearls, quilled flower, laces and punched leaves.
7. Your watercolour card is ready
