Crafty Friends Card Set | Rubeena I.

Hello, Rubeena here from A Rare Ruby with my very first post as new Creative Design Team member! Today, I’ll be sharing a set of cards I created that focus on the gorgeous Dazzlerz and Textures, which are shimmering dimensional pastes. Typically, pastes are known to be used with stencils and mixed media projects. After a year-plus long hiatus from crafting, however, I decided to use the pastes as "paints." I will list all supplies at the end of the blog post to make it easiest for everyone.

First, I picked out an assortment of colors that I thought I would play with.

I used watercolor brushes to color rose die-cuts and A2 size watercolor paper. When I first started coloring, I wasn't sure what kind of cards or layouts I would create. I let the ideas come to me while crafting all day. Once all the pieces were dry, I die-cut some large words from an alphabet die set in white, black and gold glitter cardstock. I also heat embossed various sentiments perfect for crafty friends! Then, I set about making as many cards as I could since I had a lot of pieces created. I even created a shaker card!

These pastes made me feel like a true artist, letting my creative juices flow. To get a lighter look, I simply added water when I created some of these backgrounds.
