Hello and welcome!! I love it when card kits include art mediums. MFT’s June kit included Color Burst watercolors. This is a medium I never tried before. I had heard of it, but it didn’t interest me. It took a card kit to get me to try them. I had a lot of fun working with these powdered watercolors, and it was mesmerizing to watch them burst into life when mixed with water. The speckled effects you can get with these are gorgeous and unique.
The kit also included some watercolor paper by Ken Oliver. I loved the bright whiteness of it. It reminded me of the Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Card Stock. It was fun to try, but I’ll stick with my Arches watercolor paper which can take on a lot more water than the Ken Oliver paper.
I used many different techniques to create these these cards, but my favorite is the metallic watercolors on black card stock card. This floral stamp set lent itself perfectly for this technique. I love a large floral stamp sets like this one.
At the end of my video, I included a new product I use to take pictures of my cards on. I also show you how I take pictures of my cards for my blog, Instagram and Facebook.
