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:

And here is the final card.  I am also loving the sequin trend as well as this adds perfect pops of bling to projects.

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.
