Shining Mandala Water Color | By Desiree Kuemmerle

Hello Everyone!

Let’s have some fun water coloring! For today’s project let’s use the Shining Mandala Stamp Set! This is perfect to be a focal point or as a background! When I started this, I was not sure which direction I wanted to go, so I just enjoyed creating.

I first started by prepping my water color paper with my anti-static tool to emboss two panels in gold and silver.

I then pulled out many colors from my distress inks but kept them together in a cool and warm pallet. For each panel I first added water and the dropped each color in, this is called a wet on wet technique. By having the embossed lines, it creates a barrier for your color. In some areas with will pool and others it will blend. It is wonderful to watch!

Once my panels were dry, it was time to decide what we wanted to create!

I placed my sentiments down onto a piece of card stock cut to 4 ¼ in x 5 ½ in so I could mark where I need to cut my panel.

The piece left was then placed onto the backside of my watercolor panels so I could trim around my cardstock. The panels left were then propped up onto my standard A2 size card base using double sided foam tape.

Time to stamp and die cut my sentiments and adhere them around my watercolor panels!

Added some shimmer to one card and now we have two ready for that special someone!
