Before we get to some amazing cards, I wanted to give you the blog hop info. You should have come here from the Altenew blog, and after this post you will make your way to the Flora & Fauna blog. For a complete link list for day 1 of the hop, head over to Rubeena's blog.
Design team member, Yoonsun is on the blog today with some beautiful cards!

For my first card, I started by stamping the sentiment from the Aviary set on the center of watercolor paper panel using black pigment ink. I then randomly stamped flowers & leaves from Aviary and Fleur 1 stamp sets using light colored dye ink as well.

I colored all stamped images with liquid watercolors. Once the watercolored panel was completely dry, I mounted it on kraft card base using double-sided tape.

Here is another card with the Aviary set & the liquid watercolors.

I stamped & watercolored the images same as the first card but, made a shaker card. I used the Aviary coordinating dies to cut out the bird & birdcage that are mounted to the top.

We hope that our post celebrating Rubeena's Crafting Anniversary has left you inspired, and ready to create!

Have a great time hopping on this super special day celebrating Rubeena & creativity. Happy hopping!
