Water Color Bliss

One of the gifts my sweet hubby got me for my birthday were these AWESOME water colors.

They are SO creamy.  And the colors are bright.  I decided to play around and try some emboss resist.  I pulled out some stamp sets with big sentiments to heat emboss with white embossing powder.


I chose the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Mama Elephant Birthday Wishes set and the Missing you always sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Greetings.

After I heat embossed the sentiment, I taped the paper down to my desk top and wet the paper down, a lot, with a wide, flat, brush.  Then I picked up some of the greens and blues and just droped them over the card panel

The colors went on just like I imagined.  I let the water do it's job and left it  to dry.  After it was dry, I added a second sentiment from the stamp set, trimmed the panel, rounded the corners and placed it on a white card base.
