Watercolored Gems Card

Hello all! Sorry for the delayed-by-one-day card video. :) I filmed this card last night, but needed to wait for all the elements to dry before I could photograph it.

Anyhow, this card features the My Precious stamp set by Winnie and Walter, as well as some watercoloring.

Watercolored Gems Card

Before I started watercoloring, I stamped and embossed the greeting and gem images. I used the Gansai Tambi 36 watercolor set from Kuretake Zig for the painting.

I also coated the gems with Imagine Craft’s Irresistibles Shimmer Pico Embellisher. I forgot to shake up the shimmer particles, so mine looks just clear, but I love the shine it gives.

How does the Pico Embellisher differ from Glossy Accents? It’s more fluid and tends to dry with the same texture as the paper underneath. So since I used Strathmore watercolor paper in this case, the watercolor paper texture does show. You can see it best in the video.

Hope you enjoy the card and video! :)
