Hi there ... Natalie here today.
I love making cards as much as I do creating layouts and art journal pages ... and I love to use the same techniques as I do with layouts!
Creating an inky arty card front is super easy using Magicals and this month I created two sets - one using 4 colours from the April release... Mango Mania, Cheshire Cat Cherry, Cotton Candy Pink & Frenchy's Pink Pouf and one set just using Sweet Violet Purple Teal.
I have used 300gsm watercolor paper for the base to add the Magicals to and
then used Bazzill cardstock for the rest of the cards!
Here are a few simple steps....
|Spray your paper with water then use a dry brush to sprinkle on the Magicals|
|Add some more water to spread the pigment out and let it run around your paper|
|Try with a few different colours|
|You get some great results by adding more layers|
|The more water you add the more intense the wash|
|Allow it to air dry for the best results|
|For the custom colored seam binding, mix the Magicals in with a little water in a cup|
|Drop the white ribbon straight into the cup and swish around - dry with a heat tool|
