Creative Watercolour Media

Hi there, I'm back again with a watercolour card this time. After watching the Creative Watercolour Media Lesson 6 that was taught by Laura Bassen, it made me want to jump straight into my next project. I don't have any re-inkers, but my Altenew Watercolour Brush Markers worked out just fine. 
First, I rubbed down my watercolour paper with my anti-static bag as I was going to stamp and emboss the whole page. After embossing, I spritzed the whole page with water, then used the water brush markers to drop colours directly onto the paper. This wet on wet technique is fun, the colours move on their own, and where it is embossed the watercolour would pool up and not spread. I went back in with a clean water brush to move some paint around so there wouldn't be any harsh lines. I left it to air dry then I added a perfect sentiment for this project. To add a shiny touch with the look-alike of morning frost, I squeezed paint out of my White Wink Of Stella Pen then using a toothbrush I was able to add some very fine splatters. I adhered the card front on to the purple card base with foam for dimension.

The result of this card is so calm and beautiful; it left me not wanting to add anything else and leaving it as it was. 

Tips: This card was my third attempt because the first two that I made with my clear embossing powder failed, the colours just spread and didn't pool up, which made it difficult to see the image. I changed to gold embossing powder, and it was much easier to see and work with. You should try out different colours of embossing powder to test their results.
