The last day of November

Hello everyone šŸ˜€ Mayline here. Today is the last day of November. It’s amazing how fast time flies!!! Especially when I am having fun or feeling happy, time files twice fast. For me this year, I have spent some great time with you guys and was happy to share my cards with you šŸ˜€ That is why I felt that time has flownĀ three times as fast this year than last year.

Today I am sharing two cards and tags. For today’s card I used Daniel Smith PrimaTek watercolor paint which are made from natural minerals and semi-precious gemstones. WOW! They’reĀ made from natural minerals!! It sounds so interesting. I am not an expert watercolor artist but I wanted to try to use them for my card project.

Let’s take a look at the first card and tag.

Here is my first card for today. I stamped the images from theĀ Holiday Flourishes in Versamark ink on some watercolor paper and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder. Ā Then I colored them usingĀ Jadeite Genuine from Daniel Smith PrimaTek watercolor paint. After that I stamped Ā the flower images from theĀ Simple Florals stamp setĀ and heat embossed those inĀ gold. Then I colored them with red watercolor paint from Holbein and after thatĀ I fussy cut the flowers. ThenĀ I taped themĀ down on the stamped and heat embossed images. ThenĀ I stamped the sentiment from theĀ Holiday LyricesĀ stamp set. Towards the topĀ of this card I painted a boldĀ straight line using Jadeite Genuine Ā from Daniel Smith PrimaTek watercolor paint to finish it off.

Here is a closeup of the tag. I used theĀ Holiday FlourishesĀ stamp setĀ ,Ā Simple Florals stamp setĀ andĀ Holiday LyricesĀ stamp set. The way to make this tagĀ is similar to the first card.

Here is my second card and a tag for today.

The way to make this card and tag is very easy. First, I painted the topĀ of the watercolor paper usingĀ Mayan Blue Genuine fromĀ Daniel Smith PrimaTek watercolor paint and then I stamped some snowflake images from theĀ Crystal Flurries stamp set Ā and heat embossed them in white. I also stamped and heat embossed theĀ snowflake with some clear embossing powder at the bottom of the card but you can barely see them in the photos. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from theĀ Holiday LyricesĀ stamp set.

Here is a closeup of the tag. The way to make this tagĀ is similar to the secondĀ card.

As you can see in the photo of Ā first and second tag , after the paint dried,Ā it left a dark stain on the paper.Ā  I am not sure if the stain appearedĀ on the painted paper Ā because of my lack of watercolor skills or if that is just the paint’sĀ characteristics.

Anyway it was very interesting to make my projects today but I enjoyed both projects! Originally I had a planned to make a video tutorial with this project but unfortunately I did not haveĀ time to film it because of my busy life.

I hope you enjoy today’s my creation šŸ˜€ Thank you for stopping by!
