Magical Day ATC’s

As promised, the second batch of ATC’s I made during our crafty day with my friend Nikki and my mom. {find the first batch here} After toying around with bright neon colours there was another technique I wanted to try. I’ve had the Docrafts Artiste Watercolour Markers for a while, but never really worked with them. I made a background with them once, but that was it. So, after finding some tutorials and awesome ideas on Pinterest, I wanted to play around with them for a bit. I had loads of fun with them!

I decided to also try and colour the stamps {Avery Elle’s Be A Unicorn} with the watercolour markers, since that was also a new technique for me. {I usually use pro/flexmarkers or colouring pencils}. I loved the effect! The colours flowed beautifully into each other and it took almost no effort at all. I couldn’t decide whether I wanted a bright rainbow or a pastel rainbow unicorn, so, why not both?!

The backgrounds were made by drawing a rainbow on a clear acrylic block with the watercolour markers and then spritzing it with water. When pressed to the paper the colours will become a pretty watercolour background, easy peasy! The first time {the ones with the more ‘stripy’ backgrounds} I didn’t use enough water, but I liked the effects anyway. This is how we learn, right? I cut out the tiny unicorns and added them to the ATC’s with a bit of foam tape, then added the tiny stars and the adorable sentiment. Red backgrounds for the bright unicorns and soft purple for the pastels. Love it!

They were so much fun to make and they turned out adorable. I kept the first one myself, but the rest will be traded away!

Bonus! I loved the techniques so much, that when I had to make a quick card for the double birthday of my dad and stepmom, I made this adorable pastel rainbow card. Colourful, simple and clean. They loved it!
