Let's play with colors: card+Tag+Bookmark

Hey there,

I hope all my crafty friends have spent the weekend well :) I am here with a new experiment that goes with the season of colors.

For my weekend, I kept a set of three to experiment with- a card, a tag and a bookmark.

I first started with a card stock made of ivory paper and cut out a heart to mask it. After I made the heart stick with a tape I dug into my Fuji color stripes. These colors are so cheap, only for 30/- and being a Geography student I have been using it from years.

For this I have picked as many colors that I could, different from one another and made a water color washed effect. After it got dried I lifted up the masked heart and painted it black with my hand lettering on to it.

I have used Kaisercraft decorative Tape pieces stamp with different ink colors and complimented with bakery twine by Hampton Art.

For the tag and the bookmark I repeated the same technique of giving it a water washed effect after masking it with small heart pieces of paper. I have used the AF345 Intense Black for the sentiments.
I used Avery Elle's Lots of love design for these which is my persona favorite and embossed it black.

Take a final look:
