KINDNESS MATTERS

Oh my gosh this is a bright card for me but I love it! I must be ready for the Rainbow Maker class from Online Card Classes which starts next week!  I was inspired by the gorgeous watercolour backgrounds that Kristina Werner paints. I taped a piece of watercolour card to a board, swept a wet brush across it until I’d covered the piece and then started to bring in a rainbow of colours. I left the piece to dry and then repeated the process to get really intense colours. The colours I used, from the bottom up, were :

To give the watercoloured panel a bit more wow factor I gave it a good splattering with Perfect Pearls solution. When dry I cut the Tickle Breeze die from the panel several times and then foam mounted it on an Ivory card base.

I stamped the dog and cat from the Encouraging Animals set in Versafine Onyx Black, die cut with their matching dies and lightly watercoloured. I cut the Kindness Matters die from black card and then mounted the elements on the watercoloured panel with foam adhesive.

To embellish I added droplets of Crystal Glaze and a good dose of sequins. Oh and I added Crystal Glaze to the classes of the cat too :D
