Megaflakes Watercolour Resist | Clean and Simple Card

Hello Everyone and Welcome! Ksenija is here today and I am sharing a project featuring the Chemistry Lab stamp set from the latest IndigoBlu release.

Today's post demonstrates a Clean and Simple card made with Mega Flakes resist technique and watercolour crystals.

I started with stamping repeatedly molecules from Chemistry Lab stamp set with Flitterglu down onto a cardstock panel and covering the impressions with Chariot of Fire Mega Flakes.

Having removed the excess of Mega Flakes, I applied clear water to the panel with a brush and sprinkled three different tones of watercolour crystals. To enhance the colouring I gradually added more crystals and sprayed the panel with clear water to dilute crystals. When the colouring became saturated, I dried the panel with a heat tool. Notice, that golden Mega Flakes resist watercolour and create a gorgeous contrast with blue and green colours stains.

I inked the sentiment from Chemistry Lab stamp set with Jet Black StazOn and stamped it down onto the panel.

Black cardstock makes a perfect base for such a bright panel. I decided to add a little texture to the base and heat embossed a partial impression of a sound wave from Light and Sound Borders stamp set in clear embossing powder.

To assemble the card I glued the panel to the card base overlapping slightly the embossed sound wave.

I hope you enjoy this project of mine and I inspired you to use Megaflakes resist with watercolours.
