Hi there!

It’s Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and I am super excited to share my first project as a part of Maker Forte design team!

As you probably know, the first Maker Forte release has many different types of product that you can get, but I have to admit that I was the most interested in trying out the Kaleidoscope Powders. Today, I will share a card that features one of my favorite techniques using these Kaleidoscope Powders — watercoloring!

Take a look at the card:

Frist, I stamped out the beautiful flower from the Poinsettia stamp set. I didn’t want to bring too many different colors into the mix, so I used the Maker forte Clear ink on watercolor paper and heat embossed the image with white embossing powder.

Next, I took the beautiful Hubble Kaleidoscope Powder and mixed it with a bit of water to get a nice mix of shimmery watercolor. Then, I used my brush to apply the color to the bloom part of the stamped image. I made sure that the areas that I wanted to have a bit darker, have some more powder to it which results in more dimentional final image.

To color in the leaves and the center of the flowers I used normal Distress Inks which makes the bloom really shine through the final image. Once I had the image fully colored and dry, I sprayed it with a bit of hair spray which ensures that the shimmer won’t come off the finished card.

Next, I took Mercury Metallic paper that has a really cool shine to it and matches the poinsettia beautifully. I cut out a strip of it and white embossed the ‘Happy holidays’ sentiment from Bold holiday sentiments stamp set.

I still felt like something is missing, so I added the same Mercury Metallic paper to my background as well. To connect the background with the rest of the card even better, I made a frame around the edges using white gel pen.

The last thing that I did was glueing everything together using double sided tape and the card was all finished!

Please let me know in the comments which is the technique that you want to try using the Kaleidoscope Powders! Can’t wait to hear from you!

Thank you so much for joining me!
