Watercolor over resist
I had a nice week, with a visit from my son and his wife. After they left, I had to make a quick birthday card to get in the mail.
I stamped watercolor paper with Versamark ink and added clear embossing powder to create a resist. Then, I added Twinkling H2O watercolors. They give a nice shimmer, which doesn't really show in the photo. I added coarse salt and a crinkled plastic wrap and allowed it to dry. I then splattered it with another Twinkling H2O to add some spots. Finally, I stamped the sentiment using my mini Misti because it takes more than one stamping to get a good impression on watercolor paper. I added the framing layer and put it on a white card base. I wish you could see all the shimmer.
