Here I am back with my second DT project for Kuretake UK !

Keeping in with the Spring theme, I made this card:


 Firstly, I stamped the flower image onto the watercolour card.

Using Gansai Tambi watercolours, I watercoloured the flowers.  The colours I used were :

Dark pink (34)
White (10)
Carmine red (35)
Mid green (53)


After the flowers were painted, I lightly painted around them using cornflower blue (61) and vintage photo distress ink which I watered down so it was very pale.

I coloured the inside of a well of my paint palette with a Wink of Luna silver pen, and then using a paint brush, I added splats of silver to my card.  I made sure my brush was quite wet so the ink would "splat" !

Using the Wink of Stella pink and Wink of Stella green pens I went back over areas of my flowers to give more depth of colour and also sparkle.  So that the colour wasn't too intense, I diluted the colour a little with a wet paint brush.


The subtle sparkles on this card from the Wink of Luna and Wink of Stella pens is just perfect.

After assembling the card I finished it off by adding the sentiments and a sprinkle of silver sequins.  I used the Zig Two Way Glue Pen for attaching the die cut sentiment and the sequins.  This pen is fantastic.  You only need a dot of glue which holds things fast and leaves no residue on the card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my second project.
