You may remember (or not) that I'm trying to use my
Flower of the Month Collection.
February's flower is the violet.
silver embossing powder. This process makes it so easy to watercolor!
I swiped Distress ink on my palette and picked up the color with
a waterbrush adding more color here and there.
Using the wet on wet technique, I did a light wash in the background.
When it was dry, I die cut the image, added an embossed sentiment
and popped it on an dry embossed background.
This card was inked and heat embossed in white, using the same technique
except on colored cardstock.
I found watercoloring on colored cardstock quite easy as long as
I kept the brush damp, not wet.
We did this card in my class this month.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
