Stamps Speifically For Watercoloring

     The card I am sharing today uses a flower silhouette stamp and Gelatos to create a watercolor effect.  Gelatos are concentrated pigment sticks that come in brilliant colors.  When used with water, a watercolor effect is created. 



 
 
 
 
 
As you can see from the few stray spots of color, I still need to practice more with this medium to get better results. However, I love the bright colors you can achieve from mixing several shades of color.  To add some texture to the card, I used embossing paste and an honeycomb stencil.  A stamped sentiment from the Avery Elle stamp set, Brushed completed the card. 
 
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
