Watercolored Blue Mandala Cards

Hello everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you these two CAS (clean and simple), one layer, Watercolored Blue Mandala Cards

To make these, I used a GORGEOUS Create a Smile 'Mandala' cling stamp.

For card bases I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper.

I heat embossed in clear the Mandala directly on a side folded card base. I colored the card in watercolor technique using two Distress Inks, Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon, and a lot of water. When I was satisfied with coloring, I splattered the card with the Distress Ink Mermaid Lagoon using rounded paint brushes and my first card was finished.

I repeated everything on the second card, just watercolored with more Distress Inks and less water. :o)
