Happy Friday to all!
Yesterday I saw an amazing fabulous watercolor card made by Debby Hughes and I was soooooo inspired by her coloring. So I set down and started playing with my Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolors trying to achieve a typical non perfect splotchy watercolor look.
I used Arches Cold Pressed watercolor paper and even though it has a rough texture, I managed to emboss perfectly Spring Flowers from Simon Says Stamp set. I used wet-on-wet technique for watercoloring where you basically color your image with clean water first and then start dropping colors on the wet surface. I did a few layers of coloring drying each one with my heat gun in between. This particular technique works great with heat embossed images as the raised borders of melted embossing powder contain and protect every single area. But be sure not to work on two connected areas at the same time as colors would spread very easily.
I kept everything very simple as I didn’t want to distract attention from a watercolor scene. The heat embossed sentiment on a black card stock brought more contrast and some sequins added a finish touch to the card.
As always thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me comments! I really appreciate it a lot! Have a great week-end!
