CSCC #10 - Make Me Happy!

Hello friends! This is Deepti and I wish you all the 'CSCC' fans/players a very happy and a blessed New Year 2015. :)
This month we are playing with the keyword 'HAPPY', where you can make/create paper projects incorporating the word 'happy' in any form on your card.. Today I'm sharing two simple cards and also I'm sharing a photo tutorial with a little bit of technique involved!

So here is the first one!

This is a very simple one layer card and infact anybody can create this type of cards only if you know how to draw curved lines.. ;)

So first I started off by drawing the curved lines with a black permanent marker.

And now it's time for some coloring!! Today I'm using 'Faber Castell Connector pens to water color the images. 

I scribbled all the colors on an acrylic block and I'm using 'Koi water brush' to color in my images.
These FC pens are really very vibrant when you work directly on a piece of paper but when you add a little bit water to it they give you a pastel shade. but adding more and more color with less water will give you the best result I guess.. ;) try it once and give me the feed back! ;)

I always end up with a messed sentiment and I really don't know why.. :(
but don't worry I know how to fix it!! :D

Look! How I fixed it!! ;)

And here is the finished card.. Oh yeah! I added a bit of glitter to glam up the things!

Very simple and easy card and making it is SO much fun.. ;)

Well.. here is the second one!

This card is also pretty simple one..

To create the sky I used the blue FC pen again and followed the same watercoloring procedure

Stamped the hot air balloon and colored it with grey marker.. And the sentiment was hand written..

So here is the finished one.. :)

Hope you like these two cards and got a little inspired to create something for the current challenge

Thank you and See you soon.. :)
