Super EASY Watercolor Technique

Hello all! Today I’m sharing with you a very simple watercolor technique. It’s all about dropping color onto a wet surface. If you’ve ever struggled with watercolors not spreading out or behaving like you’d like, I share some great tips in today’s video.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I used Hero Arts’ You’re Beautiful stamp set for all the stamping on this card. I stamped in VersaMark and then gold heat embossed the stamped images. As for the watercolors, I used the Amy Tangerine watercolor set that I reviewed a couple weeks ago.

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll see you in another card video very soon. :)

    Beautiful! I think it’s perfect as it is, the shine from the embossing gives it the right amount of “glitz” Thanks for sharing this with us.
