Bister watercolor powders, Everything Flowers background stamp, Hero Arts, Water Colored Cards

Hero Arts Everything Flowers

Here’s another card using Brusho watercolor powders on Hero Arts Everything Flowers background!  I began by heat-embossing the image with clear embossing powder onto Strathmore watercolor paper and then “painted” a wash of water over it all.  Simply shaking or sprinkling the powders onto the wet card stock causes them to bloom and spread, some being contained within the embossed lines of the image.  I cut the panel down in order to adhere it to a panel of blue card stock and attached it to a white card base.  I purchased the sentiment stamp from AC Moore, and heat-embossed it using green embossing powder onto a panel of the watercolor paper, trimmed it down and attached it to another layer of the blue card stock.  A few colorful sequins finished the card!

This card was made using the same technique but I used Bister watercolor powders instead; they’re more muted in tone and are sold by I Brake For Stamps.  I cut down my panel to fit my card base and then heat-embossed a sentiment bought from AC Moore with red embossing powder onto a piece of vellum card stock.  I hope you enjoy these “color explosions” as much as I do!
