#Kaisercraft Feather

Hi there,
I hope you are all well. It's been very busy here, lots of crafting and no I'm here to remedy that situation.
I have been cruising around many blogs lately and noticed that water colouring seems to be the rage at the moment. So I thought why not have a whirl at that, I had some water colour pencils I could use ( they actually belong to my gorgeous daughter) so why not. Yes, well many attempts later and the bin was full! So I thought I'd take a slowly slowly approach to water colouring and start simple, like real simple....a water colour wash over a heat embossed image. I had just the image so how hard could it be? It was so easy. I used the gorgeous Kaisercraft Feather stamp set that  comes with a matching die.....bonus 😉.

 So here are my cards.

I made five cards in total. Two with a pink water colour wash, two with a purple water colour wash and one  with a blue water colour wash
 Firstly, I heat embossed the feather image onto a piece of water colour paper with silver embossing powder. Next I scribbled over each image with a water a colour pencil in a zig- zag fashion. Then I brushed over the pencil with a water colour brush to spread the colour and to get rid of the pencil lines. Once that was dry I flicked some ink over the the water coloured image in a darker hue of the water colour wash with ink and my water colour brush. I then added some silver sequins and matted this onto some brushed silver card stock that was then mounted on craft foam and then finally attached to a coloured piece of card stock in a coordinating colour.

Here are some close ups. The pink and purple cards are without sentiments. I will put them on when I know what the occasion will be. For now they will just be in my stash.

This is the purple one and I must say in the photos it looks blue. Trust me it's purple.

The blue card below, has a  happy birthday sentiment  from an Altenew  stamp set called Label Love. I stamped it in versa fine black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, cut it out and popped it up with dimension tape. This card is for my darling daughter's birthday coming up in two weeks. Her favourite colour is blue.


A side view so you can see the shiny silver embossing and the dimension of the panels popped up on craft foam and dimension tape..

One last look at the cards all together.

So what colour is your favourite? Do leave a comment and let me know.

Have a lovely day.

Cheers Donna 😍
