Neat & Tangled January 2018 Release: Dazzling Rainbow Watercolor Crystals

 
Hello Crafters! 

It'e release week over at Neat & Tangled and pretty much everything is adorable! 
Eeep!
Such cute designs. 

I had a difficult time choosing which to showcase but ultimately the new Dazzling stamp set won out.
Because Rainbows. 


It's been a minute since I used my Zig Clean Color markers but I knew they'd be perfect to watercolor these cute crystals. I love how the background gives a sparkly reflection kind of feel. 


After the watercolor was dry you know I couldn't just leave it alone. 
No way. Dimension is required :)
I got out my Copics and added just a bit of shading. But even just a little bit really helps them to POP out from that background. 

You can see the whole card come together in the video below 


Adding the little details like the white gel pen and stickles really help to add a little wow factor. 


The design team is rocking this release. You can head over to the Neat & Tangled Blog to check out all their amazing inspiration! 

Thanks for dropping in!

  3. Love how you've mixed your media. Use the zigs for watercolor then come back and give that pop of dimension. So lovely,and well, what would a Kelly card be without sparkly and shine, right :)

  31. What a great card, I love the bright colors of the Clean Colors and the sparkling. I have them myself, I don't have the Copics but when I need to bring more depth I use and blend differend colors without using water, just blend with themselves.

  34. First of all... this. Is. GORGEOUS!

    Second, random acts are kind of my thing because I can really crack under the pressure of expectations...anxiety anyone? I love to send snail mail! Handmade love comes in lots of forms when one is crafty! I love to shower my neighbors with handmade treat bags or goody bags. Or making paper goodies for the mamma’s in my family bible study group. Whenever I can, I try.
    Thanks for being so generous yourself, Kelly!!!

  35. Love this card! I've been Copic coloring some gemstones but, I like the way your watercoloring looks better!

  36. Beautiful job. Will look thru my stamps to copy what you did with watercolors. With a limited income I give a smile and word of thanks or kindness to those I encounter. Just a simple act of kindness can really make a difference. TFS.
