Hi-ya! I've been on a watercolor kick here lately. And I'm loving it!
I've had aqua painters for years, just don't know what I've been waiting for....they are so easy to use.
For this card, I embossed the image with white embossing powder first. Then I used the ink pads to pick up the ink to color with. This was very simple - I could go over the entire flower, and not worry about the embossed part, because the embossing resists the ink. Then I could go back and add more ink for shading, etc. I have to remind myself that watercoloring doesn't need to be absolutely perfect.
What do you think of the watercolor trend? Are you using this technique a lot too? Would love to here - leave me a comment....
