Holiday Bouquet Week - Day 3

September 6, 2017

Amy K. here sharing more inspiration with this week's set Holiday Bouquet.  

Holiday Bouquet

I am sharing my favorite technique right now, watercoloring with Distress Oxides.  I start by smooshing the ink pad onto an acrylic block.  You don't need much!  TIP:  There's no easier and fun way to watercolor than to use white heat embossing.  It makes it so easy to "stay in the lines"!

Holiday Bouquet Technique

I started by white heat embossing onto Bristol Smooth watercolor paper.  This paper makes all the difference in the world when watercoloring and it very inexpensive!  First, I spritzed it lightly with some water and then using Candied Apple and Peeled Paint, I simply used my waterbrush to drop color to the areas of the poinsettias.  I colored the image several times, drying between.  As a last touch, I spritzed the image with shimmer spray and let dry.  My card was assembled using the Diagonal Stripes Elle-ments.  There's something to be said about a white on white holiday card with poinsettias!
