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!

Such beautiful cards—so bright and whimsical! My fave is the shaker—I love the way the flowers not only frame it, but seem to be flowing from it. Great job! Have a very blessed day.

You’ve created such a vibrant background! Just looking at it I wouldn’t have thought it was done with watercolours. I didn’t know Pink Fresh sold watercolour paints. I have to check them out. Happy 4th Rubeena. Thanks for giving us a chance to win, although seeing all the inspiration along the blog hop is a gift too.

This card is stunning! It looks so different from what I normally see on cards that I had to read the details to see what you did. I love how you stamped using a lighter tone ink and then the vibrancy of the watercolor is amazing. What a great job!
