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:
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.
Please leave her a comment, she would love that!

Did I tell you that I’m soooo excited about Water-coloring!!! Well, just in case you missed it, I’m soooo excited about Water-coloring!!!!!
My water-coloring class starts next week and I can’t wait. So in the meantime, I’m practicing using my watercolors. I’m also waiting from my order to come in with some different types of watercolors for this class. What class you ask, its my Online Card Class called Watercolor for card makers. I want to learn everything there is to know about how to use water-coloring on my cards. I also want my 7-year-old daughter to learn all about water-coloring as well. She’s taking the class with me, lol.
Today’s card is for Papertrey Ink’s Make it Monday #161: Watercolor Splats challenge. What a great way to practice water-coloring!!! I Love It.
So, watercolor splats are a fun twist that lets you use droplets of water to do all of the work for you. I used Papertrey dye ink’s to pull of this effect. My order of ink’s came in today which was perfect for this card. The colors are amazing and they do dry fast.
Take a look:
To create these watercolor splats, I used my sponge daubers to apply the ink to my paper. I love the textured look the sponge daubers created on my paper.
After applying each color of ink, I used my Artist’s Loft #4 paint brush soaked with water and touched my paper with the tip of the brush. I didn’t press hard at all.
Once the water landed on the paper, the ink started to move all by itself. To create bigger circles, I just added more water to the center of the circle. It was fun to watch.
I can’t wait for my 8 year daughter to create her card with these splats. She is going to be amazed. I’ll post her card when she is done.
Please leave a comment below, letting me know what you think!! I would love to hear from you.
