Hello!

Erum here today with two cards and a video! I will be sharing how to make galaxy backgrounds with Pinkfresh Liquid Watercolours.

I absolutely love watercolouring and these liquid watercolours are SO GOOD. They are vibrant and they flow effortlessly with water. Today, I will be using the Constellation Stamp and Die Set

For the first card, I will colour an entire card front by first adding water to the panel and then dropping in colour. To get a better idea, you can watch the video at the end of this post.

First, I will add Bubblegum Pink, then Lavender watercolours. Next I will add Sapphire and more of Lavender watercolour. I will also add a bit of Aquamarine and Licorice watercolours to built my galaxy background. I will keep playing around with these shades till I am happy with the look.

After the panel is dry, I will add white splatters to make my stars. Next, I will die cut all the pieces and heat emboss these using Platinum embossing powder.

I will stamp the sentiment on to a tab, place it over some silver string for interest and pop a few of the embossed die cuts onto my galaxy background and my first card is done.

My second card also features both the Constellation Stamp/Die Set along with a bit of galaxy. I messed up a little while making this card as this was my first time doing something like this. So what I did was, I spritz water onto the circular stamp from the Constellation Stamp Set then stamped (with water) onto the watercolour cardstock. I didn't think it would absorb the water right away! So what I want you to do instead is, stamp with a water-reactive light coloured ink (like distress ink) so you can actually see where you have stamped. I had to eyeball my circle.

You will repeat the same technique as in the first card. Apply water to this circle, drop in colour. Play around till you are happy with the look. For this card, I used Aquamarine, Sapphire, and Licorice watercolours.

Afterwards, I added white splatters and popped up the heat embossed die cuts.

In the end, I stamped my sentiments from Word Series: Brilliant.
