Crafty Meraki Special Edition Watercolor Kit Project 6 with Sandhya

Hello and welcome back! Today I am featuring the new Crafty Meraki Special Edition Watercolor Kit for my card project. I had a lot of fun with no line coloring, ink smooshing and fussy cutting with this project. So let's get started.

First, I stamped the flower, and a couple of leaves form the included Waffle flower stamp set on Arches cold pressed watercolor paper with the InkOn3 fade out ink, also included in the kit. I did very simple no line watercoloring using the Mermaid lagoon Distress ink for the flower and a mix of the blue and Mustard Seed ink to make my green. I mixed a tiny drop of Picked raspberry ink with the mustard seed for the orange color for the centre of the flower. I fussy cut these colored images and set them aside.

Next I spritzed a little water on my glass mat with the remnants of pink, yellow and green and strategically smooshed down my card panel on each area drying with a a heat gun between colors so they don't mix into a brown. Then I added some darker splatters for added interest. Once my panel was completely dry, I stamped some foliage from the stamp set with black ink. Then I popped up the fussy cut flower and leaves with foam squares over the stamped foliage.

I trimmed the panel to be a bit smaller than an A2 card front and adhered it to a kraft card base. I added thin slivers of gold cardstock along 2 edges. I grabbed the Sending Love sentiment that came with the kit and matted with white cardstock and added it to the card. Finally, I added a little doodle with a fine liner for the center of the flower and accented it with some gold puffy paint.

This completes my card today! I hope you liked it. I and the design team have shared several such fun ideas and tutorials on the Crafty Meraki Club on Facebook and you get exclusive access to those when you buy the kit. Check out the kit today and let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Have a wonderful day.

Hugs,

Sandhya
