Hello everyone! Welcome back to the Kraftgali Blog! Today we are playing with this beautiful stamp set from Prima Marketing which has the most whimsical and fun feel and is perfect for water coloring. I stamped out my image using VersaMark ink and then heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder. I'm using Canson XL Watercolor paper since I will be doing some watercoloring with Inktense Pencils. This card was so fun to make and I got to practice this technique, which is always needed! When you heat emboss your image, you create an area for the water color to sit and it makes it easier to work with. That is a huge help as a beginner watercolorist! Once the image was completed, I cut it out and then decided to use an excessive amount to foam mounting tape to make it stand out on my card! Before I laid it down, I took to some Distress inks and covered my Bristol Smooth cardstock with a faded-out look. This really brightened up the card and gave it the Spring look I was going for! (Speaking of...don't forget to "Spring" forward this weekend with your clocks for daylight savings time!
