For my project today, I’ll show you one of the ways I like to watercolor which is using Oxide inks on dark paper.
I started off with an A2 sized card I made using Basis Green card stock. This is a really nice traditional green – not too dark, not too light. I heat embossed a Christmas floral image I got from the most recent issue of Creative Stamping magazine using white embossing powder.
I love using watercolors with heat embossed images because it helps me stay in the lines, LOL!
It really is magical, the heat embossing resists any paint so it’s all neat and clean.
I love adding a little shimmer, so I dabbed some Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen over the leaves and flowers.
This is a really fun technique to try with any darker card stock. The colors pop so beautifully, you hardly need any other embellishment. Thanks so much for joining me today!
