Cards with water coloring technique

Hi friends,

This is a post to show my trial with water coloring technique.

I had been wanting to try cards with water coloring technique. When i saw the month's challenge at create something catchy challenges, i decided to try my hands on it... There were a lot on my list to try, here i am showing three cards i tried among those.

1. Watercolor pencils + Vellum + Dry Embossing

I dry embossed a vellum sheet with an embossing folder, highlighted the flowers and leaves on the reverse side with water color pencils. And here is the result

2. Water color + Vellum + Heat Embossing -Stained Glass Technique

I Stamped an image with Versamark ink, Heat embossed it with black Embossing powder, then colored it with water color on the reverse side.

Entering the above two cards into Imaginations online Blog challenges - All about Embossing

3. Water color + Glue 

Stamped an image with white pigment ink and then outlined it with glue.. Let it dry. And then filled the insides with watercolor.
And, here is the outcome. 

Entering these cards into the following challenges:

1. Create something catchy challenges - Water colors 


  1. What a striking array of artwork Catherine, very hard to select a favorite as I love the colours of the first, the intensity of the second and of course the flowers on the thrid which look rather like Poppies to me.
