Pop of Color!!

2 Comments

Hello everyone!!  It’s Kymona from Kreative Kymona and I’m here with my last post of the year and I’m doing that with a POP of Color for you!!!

You have a couple of days to enter our Watercolor Challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking Store.

I love watercoloring and I recently learn how to use distress markers to create a watercolor effect.

Take a look at my card:

Your Amazing front

(You have to see this card in person. The purple is so rich but this photo doesn’t display that.)

What do you think?  I love how the one flower has color so it’s the center of attention.

Lets take a closer look at my flower:

Your Amazing side

I decided to cut two of the petals to add the sentiment behind the flower as to not cover up the flower.

Your Amazing glitter flower

I added some Wink of Stella to the flower to really make that rich purple pop. Isn’t that amazing!!!

You want to know how I created this card?  Its quite simple!

1. I cut my watercolor paper to 5 x 3.75.

2. I randomly stamped my flower image using Memento Black Ink.

3. I used two distress markers to add color to the tips of my flower and the base of the flower.

4. I used my 4″round watercolor brush and water to pull the color down the petals and up from the base.  I heat set it and repeated that two more times.

5. I stamped my sentiment using Versamark Ink and Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. I heat set that.

6. I cut two of the petals so that the sentiment panel could sit behind the flower.

7. I added one Hero Arts Gem to the center of my flower.

8. I adhered the panel to my card base.

Very easy and sophisticated to create.

Well, now its your turn!!

All of the supplies I used can be found at the a2z Scrapbooking Store. If you would like to purchase any of the supplies I used please head on over to the store and use the coupon code KYMONA15 to get 15% off your purchase.

Hello, I’m Kymona Tracey. Who am I, you ask? I am a women who never slows down and loves it. Yes... I am the energizer bunny's sister! I just keep going and going (which is something that I am working on, if you follow my weekly wishes on my blog). I am a single mother of two wonderful children who are 8 years apart. My 16 year old son is a true self-made jock who plays every sport you can think of ! My 7 year old daughter is a real life princess who loves anything crafty and girly and absolutely hates anything related to sports. Talk about yin and yang! ...but I love it!! Besides running from one activity to another with them, I work full time at a hospital (public health background), facilitate a reading group at work, teach high school students on the weekends and have a huge love of learning new things. I’ve taken classes in photography, web design, knitting, scrapbooking and card-making. I love them all, however, my true passion is card-making. I was introduced to card making back in 2004 and haven’t turned back since. I started out as a hobbyist just making cards for family and friends. People were always ecstatic when they received a card from me. What they did not know was that it made me feel just as special to make a card for them. This passion pushed me into teaching card-making classes at work with a couple of coworkers who wanted to learn how to make projects for their families. In September 2013, I made a big leap and created my blog, Kreative Kymona. Besides being a mom, I think that this has been one of my most rewarding accomplishments. Just being able to share with my world community makes life so rewarding!
