Baby Cards using Iridescent Watercolours – For Creative Expressions

Its Friday, so that means I share with you my Creative Expressions make. Using Cosmic shimmer watercolour paints, and Justrite ‘We are having a baby’ stamp set, I have made two baby themed cards, and a little video tutorial showing you how I made them.

Looking closely at the die cut bows, it looks as though I have used a pearlescent paper. I am so impressed at the coverage of these paints and the amount of mica and pigment they contain. I used the Irridescent watercolour pallet, set 8, Perfect Pastels and the colours are so pretty.

The thought of using watercolours has always frightened me, I had convinced myself that I couldn’t paint, so it took me a couple of days to work out how to use them. I wanted to come up with a fool proof way to use these paints, and show you that there are many different ways in which to use them.

I have created a little video tutorial to share some of these techniques with you, I hope you enjoy!
