Hey there ! Today I am sharing a few gorgeous cards using simple & quick techniques that look super effective and are really quick to make all you need is a little Lindy’s Magic (well Magicals)! This whole set of 6 cards took me less than 45mins to make and I thought the best way to showcase the stunning color of the backgrounds was with basic white cardstock & a few dies!
I started with flat white cardstock and cut out shapes using my Sizzix Machine.
I then used four colors of Magicals in a mixing palette – Witches Potion Purple, Hottie Patottie Hot Pink, Bachelor Button Blue & Bells of Ireland Green – and mixed with a little water.
Using a #12 Round brush, I quickly brushed on the color. I did it quickly as I wasn’t using watercolor paper and the flat cardstock absorbed the Magicals quickly leaving brush strokes – so I needed to work fast.
I then added another color while the first color was still wet & then splattered on a final color.
Each background was similar – though for some I used just one color for the background.
Some I added a couple of colors.
Once dry, I use glue to stick on the die cuts and then mounted them onto the card!
Simple & super effective!
