It’s Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and I must admit that I haven’t been making much cards lately, so today I decided to make a card for my soul — a watercolored floral card.
Take s look:
I started by stamping out a floral image from Aloha stamp set on a piece of watercolor paper. Then, I used ZIG watercolor markers to color in the image. I made sure that I left the shadows dark and the highlights bright. I used purple and red for the blooms and green for the leaves.
Once the image was colored, I went ahead and added some white details using white gel pen. The image seemed to big for a standard card base, so I quickly cut it in the middle which got me two parts of the stamped image. I glued it one over the other to get to a nice tall image.
Next, I added a black strip of paper to the left hand-side of the card and embelished it with a white line across its left side. To corespond with the black, I added the sentiment that reads ‘Hello my friend’ from the same Aloha stamp set.
The card was all finished in no time, so now the only thing left to do is to send it out.
