Watercoloring seems to be a hot trend in card making. I was pretty intimidated at first to even try watercoloring but after watching many (ok lots) of YouTube videos, I decided to give it a try. I ordered the supplies I felt I needed for watercoloring – watercolor paper, aqua painters, and some extra embossing powders. I could not believe how EASY it was! I might be slightly addicted to watercoloring now……
I stamped the Blended Bloom image in versa mark ink, then heat embossed in gold embossing powder. Once the image was set and dry, that is when the fun started. I used my aqua painter to add black and gold inks to the image. I used my heat tool to push around the inked up water on the image to give those beautiful water marks I love so much on cards.
Here is a close up of the watercolored flower:
Thanks for stopping by today! Stay tuned as I’ll be posting another video hopefully this weekend. The project we’ll be making is a gable type box to hold a mini lotion bottle from Bath & Body Works.
