Pop of Color!!

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!!

Merry, Merry….

Hello everyone!  Kymona here from Kreative Kymona, with a one layer Christmas card for you today.

I had so much fun the other day with the Digital Blog Hop we participated in that I wanted to make another card featuring a digital item.  Creating digitally is so easy and can be mass produced effortlessly.

Merry Background

We send out so many Christmas cards that this technique is one way to go this year.

Take a look at my card:

Mery, mery

Clean and simple is the way to go this Christmas.

Here is how this card was created:

1. I opened up the Merry, merry stamp in Photoshop.

2. I resized it to fit my A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50).

3. Then I printed it out on heavy weight cardstock.

4. Added Hero Arts Gems to the sentiment.

5. I tied a bow (with a random piece of ribbon that I had lying around) around the top and rounded the bottom corners.

My card was done, 5 minutes flat!!  Now who wouldn’t want to have a set of cards completed in no time!!
