Watercolored Cards | Rubeena I.

Hello, Rubeena here from A Rare Ruby with my second post as Creative Design Team member! In today's post, I will be focusing on Inklingz and Creameez watercolors. Check out my new storage for them in my Ikea Alex drawers!!

Once I find some free time, I'll be sure to do some swatches and organization so I know which colors are which. They are so easy and fun to use. You simply add some water and mix it to use as watercolors. These are the colors I used in today's cards:
  Shimmerz02

For my first card, I simply watercolored some lines across watercolor paper. I covered it with this die-cut cover plate, added sentiments, splatters and some clear droplets.

For my second card, I wanted to try watercoloring an image. This rose was perfect practice:
  Shimmerz04

After watercoloring the image, I fussy-cut it and placed it over my card base with foam tape. I added a word die-cut and then finished it off with more splatters and clear droplets. The shimmer on this card is subtle and lovely in person! I wish you could capture it in a photo though. For my final card, I colored the same rose, except I went a bit darker. I added details with white and black pens. This one I kept as a one-layer card.
