Watercolor Embossing Resist Technique

Hello crafters,

I felt like painting today but didn't have a lot of time, so I decided to make a card using gold embossing and watercolors.  This is a clean and simple technique that anyone can do.  First, I heat embossed my flowers onto my cardstock.  Then I sprayed the card stock with just a little water so that the watercolors would blend together.  After that, it was just a matter of painting the inside of the flowers.  The heat-embossed gold image kept all the paints confined to the inside of the petals.  In fact, you can paint right over the gold and it just slides off and keeps its sparkly finish.  I used the same technique for the "thinking of you" sentiment.

I am entering my card in the card sketch challenge over at Sketch Saturday and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (clean and simple).

Thanks for stopping by!
