Picture

Hi friends!! This is Deepti Malik and I am here with some fun techniques for you. I thought water coloring is a hot trend right now so why not share a couple of techniques that are both fun, quick and will make ur project look amazing :) First up... Here's what the projects look like once complete. I decided to make some tags. 

You can apply the same technique on ur cards ! These technique are best for building a back ground for ur projects. So let's quickly take you to the technique :)


The supplies needed for the technique are -  
Water color paper tags/ card stock
Water colors - I used Twinkling H2O, any kind of water colors would work.
Brush - a flat brush
Some facial tissue - for Technique #1
Exacto knife - for Technique #2

Technique #1 - Creating Clouds Start with water coloring the card base/ tag. For this first apply a thin coat of water on base, followed by water color. This will result in smooth water colored surface. Now to create the cloud use a dry facial tissue, crumple it and dab it randomly on water color surface while itsstill wet. This will result in very realistic cloudy sky. Here's the process shown in pics :)

Technique #2 - Exacto knife background  Start with water coloring the card base/ tag. For this first apply a thin coat of water on base, followed by water color. This will result in smooth water colored surface. The Exacto knife background building technique involves making superficial cuts on the water color card stock while water color is still wet. once we make these cuts, the water color seeps into the grooves of these cuts. I decided to make snowflakes by making cuts like an asterisk (*) . The same process will work with creating grass, trees or anything ur heart desires :) Here's the process shown in pics :)
