How I Used Three Different Coloring Mediums in One Card

by Sveta Fotinia

Hello everyone! Sveta here to share a new card I made using watercolor brush pens, alcohol markers, and ink spray. The main medium that I used was the watercolor brush pens, but I added accents using alcohol markers and ink spray.
I started my card with heat-embossing using Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder. I decided to create a combination of begonia flowers from Build-A-Flower: Begonia. Before this, I made a mask to stamp the three flowers together.Here is where my favorite part of the card began!

I started coloring using watercolor brush pens: Rouge, Espresso, Metallic Silver, Mountain Mist. In some stages, I used a heat tool to speed up the process. Using heat-embossing for the image made the coloring much easier as I didn’t worry about the borders.

My next step was spraying with Pure White Ink Spray. I used it in a non-regular way; by adding splatters with the tube inside the spray’s head. Then, I colored background and made a shadow around the flowers using Alcohol Markers. I also used them also to color the sentiment die-cut from Hello and Hugs Die Set.
For the card base, I chose the matching Forest Glades Cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed today’s handmade project and will try some of these cardmaking techniques in your next crafting sessions.

I would have never thought to use all 3 together, but it turned out fabulous.
