A set of one layer watercolour cards | Natasha Valkovskaya

Hello, happy to see you here! I have four cards and a process video for you today. I've made a set of cards using Fancy Blooms set and Pinkfresh Studio watercolours which I absolutely adore! 

The cards are really simple, but I love the watercolour and a bit artsy look they have.

For this card I used Lavender watercolour, and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things to Say set. I'm pretty sure this sentiments set has been the most loved one recently! I used it for this Sunshine card.

I used Bubble Gum colour for the next card, as well as the Hey Gorgeous die.

I heat embossed floral images on all four cards before colouring the backgrounds, and then ironed the embossing powder off (check the video to see how I did that). And then I stamped the images again in ink and this created an interesting white shadow around the images, which you can see in this close-up photo.

For the next card I used Sky Blue watercolour and the sentiment from Playful Animal Friends 1 set

I made all four cards the same way, so they will make a nice gift set. Just add matching envelopes, tie them with a ribbon and voila - a lovely handmade gift!

As promised, here's the process video. In it I'm also sharing with you some thoughts on colour combos. I'd be interested to know how you choose colours and which are your favourite?

 Thank you for spending time with me! Have a great day and find time for something that makes you happy!
