Colorful Inspiration!!

Hello friends this is Kanan and today I have few colorful cards to share with you.!!
So let's get started....

First Card - 

  • I used the "Splash" stencil by Mudra to dry emboss the card panel
  • I colored the flowers and leaves from the "Wild Roses" set using Zig markers.
  • Added some black splatters on the embossed panel and adhered the images.
  • Lastly, added some gems to finish the card.
  • This card is super simple yet have splash of bright colors and the dry embossing added a lot of texture to it.
Second Card -

  • I created the background using Faber Castell's Gelatos 
  • I applied the Gelatos directly onto a watercolor panel and used a wet baby wipe to spread the colors. 
  • Added some splatters using gesso on the panel.
  • On a vellum I embossed the images from the "Simply Florals" set using rose gold embossing powder and adhered on the panel. The rose gold embossing powder looks so rich and goes so well with brightly colored panel.
  • Added the sentiment from the "Sentiment - In Circle" set
  • Added, few gems on the panel with some butterflies from a patterned paper and adhered the whole panel on a main card base with strip of patterned paper.
  • Few simple steps of mixed-media can give a very artsy look to any card. 

Third Card - 

  • I colored the card base using Distress inks and added some splatters to get that cool effect.
  • Used the same Distress ink and stamped the "Pixels" stamp set randomly on the background.
  • Added that adorable giraffe image form the mini "Giraffe" set with some patterned paper strips
  • Added, the sentiment from the "Balloons" set. 
  • I also drew little eyes on giraffe's glasses...:P
  • Added some sequins and my card with happy colors is ready.

Hope you will like my cards. If you have any questions or suggestions, please leave a comment.
