Watercolor Cards with Glass Trays

Hello everyone!!  Kymona here from Kreative Kymona to share a couple of watercolor cards with glass trays attached that could be used as charms or necklaces in the future.

Watercolor is my favorite medium and I wanted to demonstrate that by creating a card to go with Craft Fantastic Mini Round Pendent Trays.   I used the images from May's Watercolor Kit to create my charms.  Those images from that kit are totally awesome and my favorite. I can see me using them over and over again to create wonderful pieces. 

Take a look at what I create:

Breathtaking right!!! All of the aspects of the card makes me smile.  The charm balances out the sentiment and the watercolor gives the card life!!

I couldn't just make one, check out the rest of my cards:

I'm so tickled by these cards!!  They were fun to make and I hope the recipients love them as well!!

Here's how I created the charms:

1. I selected the images from the Watercolor Inspiration image sheet. 
2. I added glue to the Mini Round Glass and place it on top of the image.
3. Then I placed a super sticky dot in each of the Mini Round Pendant Trays.
4. Once the glued dried, I wiped away any excess and cut around the glass to get rid of the extra paper.
5. Then I placed the glass in the tray!

For the two cards that have an extra charm, here is how I added those:

1. I two multi purpose jewelry pliers and attached the charms to the glass trays with a small jump ring

For the watercolor panel, I simple wet the front with some water and added the different watercolor to the panel.  The colors spread and dried to what you see above.  I trimmed each panel and adhered them to the black card base. 

I used sliver elastic string to attach the charm to the card.  The charm isn't attached to the card front, it will slide on the elastic when you move it. 

The recipient can take the charm off of the card and use it for a necklace or a charm for a planner.

So what do you think?  Aren't these watercolor cards with glass trays beautiful? Please let me know below.  I would love to hear from you!!
