Floral cards using CrafTangles Liquid Watercolours


This is a guest post by Pooja from Reusing Cards and Quilling

Hello, CrafTangles fans and followers. It's Pooja from Reusing Cards and Quilling (http://reusingwithquilling.blogspot.com) sharing my experience with newly launched liquid watercolours. As you all must be aware currently there are 7 colours which come in handy little bottles, extremely easy to store. They are very easy to use, them all you have to do is squirt a tiny drop on your palette and start using.


These colours are extremely concentrated and just by varying the amount of water added you can get a range of shades from just a single colour. Plus you can mix them to create new colours as you can see in the picture below.


First Card

I stamped a tulip from “Just a note” Stamp set and coloured them. The biggest USP of these colours is their saturation I haven’t used up even small drop after colouring all these flowers. After initial trials, I made a small note card with those lovely tulips. I stamped only part of the bunch masked it to stamp one more tulip. These images are detailed and due to stamping with light ink I lost most of them! I have used ripe plums colour for flowers and a mix of lemon tart, poolside and evergreen for leaves




Second Card

On the next card, I stamped the tulip bunch as it is and coloured them using Soul mate, Lemon tart, Autumn blaze and ripe plums for shadows. I drew black strips with markers on the background and layered a piece of gold foil beneath the watercoloured panel. The sentiment is from the same set.






Third Card

On the third and final card, I used “Happily ever ” Stamp set. Started by stamping the floral bunch repeatedly with grey ink on the card base and stamped it on watercolour paper separately. Colours used are Soulmate, Evergreen, Lemon Tart.







If you are a watercolour enthusiast like me, then these liquid water colours are must buy for you! I enjoyed using them a lot.

Thanks a lot to Khayti and team for giving me this opportunity to guest design and use awesome products from.CrafTangles. I hope I have inspired you to try them out.

With Love,
Pooja ( Reusing Cards and Quilling )
