Die Cutting Ellen Hutson Water Coloring

Metallic Watercolored Amaryllis

Who doesn’t love metallic watercolored Amaryllises?  And best thing is, you need very few supplies to recreate this beauty! You don’t even need watercolored cardstock.  I stamped the flowers from Mondo Amaryllis several times with Embossing ink onto regular black cardstock and heat embossed using Wow’s Ultra Fine white embossing powder. Then I watercolored them with Altenew’s Metallic watercolors…. It’s so shiny and so pretty! Once that was all dry, I die cut them with the coordinating die and layered them onto a card base.  The sentiment is from the Totally Random Sayings 1 stamp set. I love the bold, thick font. I heat embossed with the same ink and embossing powder as the flowers. The sentiment is popped up with some X-Press foam tape (on sale I might add).

What do you think about the metallic watercolors on black cardstock? I like that some of the black still shows thru….
