Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wash with Aqua Painters ~ love!

Hello Everyone!  This week Stampin' Up! release a fun new video showing the Watercolor Wash technique. I just love using my Aqua Painters as those of you who frequent my blog know.  I loved the card made in the video and had to make a version of it right away. 

You start this technique by embossing your image with clear embossing powder onto watercolor paper.  Make sure you find some open line images. 
Hopefully you can see the shine on the embossed flowers in the photo. :)

Next take your Aqua Painter and quickly wash over the images.  work quickly here, you don't want to get stark lines, you want a lighter quick wash. 

Once you have the whole base washed over the card, you need to let it dry a bit.  Now is a great time to put together your card base.  This will dry quickly so its not a big deal.

Then go over JUST THE PETALS with the Aqua Painter again.  use a slightly drier brush this time. 

This is really going to make those flowers stand out. 

Thanks for stopping by today!!
