Watercolored, One Layer Wonder

May 02, 2014

Hi friends! I am playing along a fun challenge at Mod Squad, and they've challenged us to make one layer cards. I like making them so much that I wanted to create another one. This time I went for watercoloring over heat embossed florals. Please take a look:

Flourishes - Over the Garden Gate
Ranger embossing ink
Brilliance pigment ink
Inkadinkado embossing powder - Linen White, Glam Gold
Zap! heat tool
Faber Castell watercolor pencils - 010, 032, 031, 074, 071
Bazic two sided tape
Other generic materials
7/8" satin ribbon in peach
Eggshell white cardstock

Though this is a one layer card, if you are very careful and use very, very little water, your cardstock won't bend. I don't apply the dry color directly to the image, I do it on a scrap piece of paper that I use as a palette, and add the color little by little. I colored the flowers with two tones of peach and the leaves with two tones of green. I added a heat embossed in gold sentiment, a bow and crystals to the center of the flowers.

Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by.
