I have created my own pallet of watercolors using various lines of powder color. The combination of one color with pearlescent or mica powders gives the shimmer I was looking for. Here I combined Ken Oliver Cerulean Blue with Honkydory Prism Sparking Sapphire to get this color of blue. By adding Mica Gum I can let the colors dry out in their tray and re-hydrate when needed plus it really helps set the color and shine on paper.
For this card I stamped the floral image with embossing pad then heat set Platinum on white text vellum. After water coloring using a paint brush very loosely, I then added splatters and allowed to dry. Next, I dry embossing to add texture and flatten out the paper. Once trimmed down and mounted on white cs base I added the strip and heat set die sentiments, both created on the Silhouette.
Thanks for sharing your time with me, now I am sharing this with:
