Simply Beautiful….Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

Hello everyone, I’m back again for the second time.  I’m here joining Papertrey Inks BIG monthly Blog Hop!!!

I’m so excited.  I’ve never been on a blog hop before!

I must say it was exciting to create a card in a matter of minutes for the world to see.  Ok, so it took me more than a minute, I started making this card an hour and a half ago.  But the results are amazing, to me at least.

The challenge was to use two colors: Aqua and Melon!!!

Aqua and Melon

That should be easy, right, wrong!!

I had a Aqua Mist ink pad but I didn’t have any melon color.  No ink, paper, embellishments, nothing.

How was I going to participate if I didn’t have melon.  I started to fret.  I knew the colors for a little while but I procrastinated on buying the melon ink that I needed.

So what is a girl to do????

Ding, Ding, Ding…..the bells went off in my head.  Water-coloring is my favorite so why not create the color yourself!!!  OMG, I can create the melon color that I need.  That is what I did!!

Light melon

So this is what I came up with first.  It looks so close but it was too light so I decided to go at it again.

darker melon

Much better!!  I love how it turned out.  I feel like a true artist now, LOL!!  I used my Winsor & Newton Water Colours!  The colors that I mixed were Burnt Sienna, White and Alizarin Crimson, respectfully.

I took my time and mixed one color at a time, cleaning my brush in between.  When it was to red I added Burnt Sienna and when it was to white I added a little red until I got the color you see above.

I was jumping up and down because I can participate in the hop!

So enough with the long talking, here is the card I came up with!

Have a Beautiful day

What do you think?  Does my butterfly past the Aqua and Melon test?  I love WATER-COLORING!!!!

For the butterfly, I attached the out butterfly to the body using foam adhesive so that the wings would stand out.

For the card base, I just sponged the edges with the Aqua Mist and then I used my mini ink blender tool and bought the softer color towards the center.

I stamped the sentiment and Wala!! My card is complete.

My Daughter’s Water Splats

I’m so excited today!!!!  I have a guess designer visiting my blog.  Let me introduce my special guest.

Sanaa is a 7-year-old crafter.  She is new to the public eye.  She wanted to debut her first appearance here on the Kreative Kymona blog.  I’m so happy she choose me to showcase her.  She is also my beautiful daughter.

Sanaa wanted to play along with Papertrey Ink’s Make a Monday #161 Water Splats challenge.  She had a lot of fun creating her card.

Take a look:

Take a look at her final card:

Hello Sanaa

She used Papertrey Dye Ink Aqua Mist and Berry Sorbet to create her card.  Sanaa had a blast adding her Water Splats.  She was totally amazed at how the ink reacted to the water.  Once she started adding water, she couldn’t stop.  The look came out so good.

After adding the Water Splats, she die cut Lawn Fawn Hello die and Papertrey Ink’s Sketched Stars Die Collection and adhered it to her card base.

I love how her card came out.  This was her first time working with her inks and water.  She said she wants to do another card.
