Guest designer Tutorial

My mind was blown away by card that NataShuk made for the last challenge.
And she is kind enough to share with us her secrets how she made it.
Here it is my friends! It easy, it's fun... and it's Euporic on a cards!!!

Here is a list of what you'll need to make this fantastic paper:

1.Paper for watercolors
2.Watercolor paint
3.Soft Brush
4.Container with water For watercolors
5.A piece of wax (or a candle)
6. A Big container of water
7.Heat tool
8.Plastic to cover  and protect your working area

Wet your watercolor paper in a large container

Let the water to slide off the page

And while the paper is wet drip on it chosen colors from a paint brush

Make sure that the whole page is covered in color
You can mix colors, so that design will have more depth to it

Dry your paper with a heating tool, or if you don't own one, air dry it.

When your page is dry, take some of that wax, and make simple designs, like swirls.
Remember wax is colorless, so make sure you don't have empty spaces, unless you desire so.
And wax will leave some crumbs behind on the paper-don't worry about it. Just leave them.

For the second time place your colored with paint and wax page into the large container with water, and qiuckly remove it, so the color won't dissappear into the water.

Let exess water to drip off

Now let the magic begin....
While your page is still wet add a second layer of color, just like you did before.
And Now you'll see how the paint will awoid waxed portions of the paper and make cool design.
This part kids love the most!
You can pick up your paper, and let pain to swirl into the different pattern. 

After that you apply heat or air dry it once more.
And when your paper is completely dry, add some contrasting dots, let's say with white acrylic paint with a tooth brush.
Don't forget, that at this point you can add some stamped or embossed elements too!
Do not disregard your leftover paper-you can decorate inside the card with them.

Happy crafting everyone!
And THANK YOU Natalia for wonderful tutorial!
