Video: FOUR Easy Cards with Erum + Bonus Christmas Inspiration

Hi there everyone! 

Erum here with a very rainbow-y post! I am sharing four cards and a process video showing how all the cards came together. I also have a fifth card to share at the end of this post.

You can watch the video below or on YouTube in HD.

 

Let's start with the first card.

Card 1: Dripping Watercolour Background

Pinkfresh Studio | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0 | @pinkfreshstudio

This is the dripping watercolour technique. If you follow my work, you must've seen me incorporating the dripping watercolour technique in a lot of my cards. You can watch the process video to understand how I get such an arty look.

The die "smile" is from Smile with Botanicals Die Set and the sentiment is from Word Series:Believe.

Second card: Messy Watercolour Background

Pinkfresh Studio | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0 | @pinkfreshstudio

 I started by adding one colour to the background and proceeded to "built" my puddle of rainbow colours. This is SO easy and again very artistic.

I stamped the images from the Aviary Stamp Set and coloured them with Prismacolor pencils.

Card 3: Ombre' Dripping Watercolour Background

Pinkfresh Studio | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0 | @pinkfreshstudio

Here I followed the same steps to make my background as I did on the first card but on this one I kept picking up much of the colour from the lower portion of the panel with a tissue paper.

 I stamped several images from Fleur1 Stamp Set and popped them on the panel.

In the end, I stamped the sentiment and added some black paint splatters.

Card 4: Diagonal Wet and Wet Watercolouring

Pinkfresh Studio | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0 | @pinkfreshstudio

I applied watercolour to the entire panel then started adding my watercolours diagonally. Also, I didn't worry too much if my colours became a little lighter.

I stamped several images from the Bloom and Grow stamp set directly on the panel and added details with a white gel pen. I also stamped three butterflies separately which I die cut and popped with foam tape. I also added tons of white and black paint splatters.

Bonus Christmas Inspiration

Pinkfresh Studio Skating Bunnies | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0 | @pinkfreshstudio

I used the Skating Bunnies Stamp Set for this card. Aren't these the cutest?

I started by applying distress ink in the center and blended it as I went closer to the edge. Next, I heat embossed some "falling snow" and snowflakes.

 I also hand cut the pattern paper scallops you see. This pretty paper is from Simple and Sweet Paper Pack (6x6).

I hope you enjoyed today's post. I had a blast.

Thank you for stopping by ♥
