VIDEO TUTORIAL: Making a Fun/Easy Watercolor Card {Dusty Attic & Shimmerz Paints}


Hello friends!  Gabrielle here with you today!  I have a fun and easy little card tutorial to share with you all today.  It's the weekend and I wanted to have a little fun playing with some of my Shimmerz Paint products, and some of my Dusty Attic chipboard.  So I gather up a few supplies, some watercolor paper and got playing!

Here is a quick l'il video tutorial I made up to show how I put it together!  (Note:....my lighting is bright when I film so the card appears softer in color in the video...above is the actual colors)  Enjoy!


Here are a couple of close-ups of the card design: 


I used some old stash for this card, some Prima Hydrangea blooms I had from an old kit.  I also used Martha Stewart leaf punch for the green leaves (just punched from cardstock and given a bit of a wrinkle.


I used one of my stamp designs, the Dandelion, as my center piece.  I used some white embossing powder with it....I would recommend not to press as hard as I did for this card as I feel I lost a lot of my detailing because of this :)


Products Used in this project:

Dusty Attic Chipboard:  Filigree Frame


Shimmerz Paints Products:
~ Moody Mauve Coloringz
~ Don't Citron Me Coloringz
~ Plum Pudding Sprtiz
~ Punked Up Purple Coloringz
~ Blue My Mind Inklingz
