Altered Card: Water colours


Here is another card I made with water colors. This time, I tried altering an old invitation into a card and was pretty happy with the outcome.


This was the invitation which I altered:


Some random brush strokes is what I made to get the abstract look on the card background.


Below are some of the picures of the card that I took fom different angles.

Watercolour Card: Sail Away

Hello again,

After I tried the marbeling technique with water colours in the little hearts card, I couldnt hold myself back fm making more such marble patterns. I tried making marbled paper with different color combinations used it in the below card.


I cut out two marble paper patterns and made the sea and sky. For the boat, I used plain cardstock-same as the one used for the background. I highlighted the edges of the boat with a permanent market.


I wrote the sentiment with a crochet thread to add some dimension in the card.


Below are few more pictures of the card I took from different angles.

Water colours are a fun to use. And the marbeling technique is so addictive.. You cant just stop at once.

Water colour Card: Little hearts

Inspired by the water colour challenge on Lulupu blog, I tried my hand at watercolouring for the first time and made a few cards. Here is a card I made using the marbeling technique using water colours.


I created a water colour marble on a white card stock and cut out different sized hearts from it. I assembled the cutouts to form a collage  in the shape of heart.


I used a handmade paper as the base to make the card. I also used the border punch which I won in the previous challenge at Lulupu to cutout the borders form the marbled paper and added it as a border on the card.


Below are some more pictures of the card which  I took from different angles.

After all, I felt , watercolouring is so much fun and its definitely not as tough as I thought 🙂 !!
