Watercolor Flowers

I took a class where we used watercolor crayons and misted them. The technique is to use watercolor crayons. I don't have any watercolor crayons, but I liked the soft look on the card so I replicated the idea with my watercolor markers and misting the stamp. Here is the result:

Steps to create the background and the 2 flowers.

  1. Color the markers on the rubber stamp and mist with water. Stamp on watercolor paper. Repeat the step until the entire background is covered.

  2. Cuttlebug Emboss the watercolor paper with the stamped images.

  3. Brush the top of the embossing with ink pad.

  4. For the two flowers

  5. Ink the stamp with Versamark Watermark Ink. Color on top of the versamark on the stamp and stamp on the watercolor paper. Heat emboss with Clear Embossing powder.

  6. I also added a little bit of stickles on the top edge of the two flowers.
