Quick how to for birthday cards

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well and looking forward to some happy crafting. This year I’ve promised myself to spend moe time creating for myself. I struggled last year to find my muse and often found myself just getting stuff done for the design teams I’m on. This year I want to focus more on my art and so to start off here are some birthday cards created  with just a couple of things, Brushos and Watercolour Paints, both Senellier and 

Kuretake Gansai Tambi(which I love btw) links are down below

First one 
Sorry about how dark the photos are, even in daylight it was dark!

So I sprinkled,  sparingly,  red and green crystals and gently spritzed to activate. I then dried.

Then with the watercolour paints I picked out the flowers and leaves. Once dry I flicked some gold paint and added a few touches to leaves.

Some close ups!

Lastly, I edged in black (not sure which I prefer)

No 2
Made the same way, except used a looser style pen work

I haven’t actually mounted these yet, but I’m sure you know how that. You can of course try this with any colour crystals such as Infusions, Bisters or Magic Powders. I Hope you have enjoyed this ‘how to’ for quick cards, please click the follow, to make sure you know when I next post, and if you have an questions please leave in the comments below.
