Virginia's View Challenge | Watercoloring

Today I have a card for the first ever Virginia's View Challenge: Watercoloring.

My supply of watercolors is limited to a couple of Crayola watercolor sets that the kids use, so I pulled out my Gelatos and used those instead. I created an emboss resist with Wplus9's Fanciful Feathers set. After I embossed the feathers with white embossing powder, I colored some of the pink gelato onto my craft mat, then used a wet brush to pick up the color and apply it to my card front. I used watercolor paper (from Michaels) to avoid warping or pilling of the paper.

After the paper dried, I spritzed on some Heidi Swapp color shine in Primrose and Gold Lame, then adhered the watercolor panel onto gold shimmer paper. The "thank you" sentiment was stamped onto vellum (also from Michaels), then embossed with gold embossing powder. I finished off the card with some gold sequins from my stash. 

(Supplies - Stamps: (Wplus9) Fanciful Feathers. Ink: VersaMark. Cardstock: (PTI) Gold Shimmer. Watercolor paper, vellum: Michaels stores. Patterned Paper: Making Memories. Color Medium: Gelatos, Heidi Swapp Color Shine. Other: Sequins, gold and white embossing powder.)

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
