Tulips...

Hello everyone!!  It's Kymona from Kreative Kymona and I'm here today sharing one of my favorite mediums with one of my favorite So Suzy Stamps.

Can you guess what those two thing are?  Ok, ok, ok, this one might be a bit hard since this is my very first project post!!

My favorite medium is Watercoloring and my favorite So Suzy Stamp set is the Tulip stamp!!

Yes, when you put these two things together, noting but beauty should come to mind!!  Well let me now keep you waiting.

Take a look at my card:


I'm so tickled pink at how pretty those tulips turned out.  Watercoloring can do wonders if you just let go and relax.

I decided to make thank you cards because I'm running out of them and these types of cards are always needed.  Who won't want one of these cards in their mailbox!

Take a closer look:


Are you wondering how I created those white lines in my tulips?  Are you wondering what colors I used to color in my flowers?  Well don't wonder any more.

This is how I created my card:

1. I used Simon Says Stamp Dark Chocolate cardstock as my A2 size card base (4.25 x 5.50).

2. I cut my Canson Watercolor paper to 3.75 x 5.00.

3.  I used my EK Success powder tool to prep my watercolor paper for embossing.

4.  I stamped my Tulips 3 times using Versamark ink.

5. Then I sprinkled my Hero Arts Embossing powder and then heat set it.

6. I used my Distress Marker Squeezed Lemonade first and colored the base of each petal.  Then I used my 1" round watercolor brush to spread the ink from the base of each petal to the top.  As the color moves it lightens.  Let the water dry.

7. Then I used Distress Marker Ripe Persimmon to add more color to my petals.  I added the ink to the top and the base of the petals.  When I add water to the edge of the new color it mixes with the original colors.  The more water you add the lighter the color and vices verse.

Note: Distress Ink is water-based so its easy to create cool watercolor looks.  I have to admit this was my very first time using Distress markers and I have to say, I LOVE them.  They were very easy to control. 

8.  Then I used Distress Marker Tumbled Glass to add color to the background of my watercolor paper.  Then I added some water to pull the color throughout the paper.

9. I couldn't wait for my watercolor piece to dry so I used my heat gun to dry it.

10. I used stamped my So Suzy Thank you sentiment stamp with Walnut Distress Ink.

11. I rounded the bottom corners with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. 

12. I adhered my watercolor panel with Tombow Xtreme Tape Runner.

That's it!  That is how you create my card.  I hope you like today's card!  Please leave a message below letting me know what you think?  If you have any question, please ask.

  1. Your debut card is absolutely stunning, Kymona...those tulips are gorgeous! A bit of 'spring' in the midst of all the winter/Christmas themed cards is so refreshing. Thank you for sharing your 'how to' details! Hard to believe this was a first-time use of distress markers; you're a natural pro!
