Heat Embossing Techniques Water Coloring

Hello Watercolored Florals

Hello there! I am still on a break but found these cards I made months ago and never shared so thought I would share them with you today. This stamp set from Concord & 9th just called my name and said watercolor me! So I did, twice! All the supplies I used are linked to multiple sources at the end of this post. I watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers (lots of different set quantities available, see supply list). You can also purchase these markers individually at Ellen Hutson by clicking HERE.  Anytime I use ZigClean Color Real Brush markers, I only use BRISTOL paper. I’ve tried many other papers and they just don’t work for me.


For the first card, I scribbled various colors of the Zigs all over the image and then heavily sprayed the paper with water and that’s it!!!!!

My next card, I colored within the lines the traditional way. One color at a time, blending out with water as I go.

Believe it or not, I didn’t use that many colors of Zigs on these cards… I think maybe 8 colors…

I sure hope I get back into the swing of things soon. I’ve been going thru some personal struggles and hopeful with the help I’m seeking I’ll get back to normal soon…..
