Watercoloring with Finetec Pearl Shimmer Paints

Happy Wednesday, all! Today I’m continuing my obsession with Finetec watercolors. This time I’m using the more colorful palette with 12 colors. These colors look great on white surfaces, but even better on dark surfaces (like in this video, or this video). I thought I’d try them on a light gray cardstock, Simon Says Stamp’s Fog cardstock.

I stamped the large floral image from Mama Elephant’s Botanic Hello stamp set in VersaMark ink and then added some Ranger clear embossing powder. After heat setting it, I was able to watercolor over the top and have the embossed lines repel the paint.

To add some interest and break up some of the solid colors, I painted dots and small leaves using white gouache as well.
