Heat Embossing Techniques Videos Water Coloring

Video: Watercolored Tea Cups


Hi there! I’ve got a thing for black/white, but lately, I’ve been wanting to throw some gold in there too! So how about we do it all on these tea cups? I heat embossed the teacups with this gold embossing powder and used the black color from the Gansai Watercolor tablet (any black watercolors you have will work) and paired it with the Metallic golds from this Finetec Metallic set. Metallic watercolors. YUM!

This is very unlike anything that I’ve watercolored before, and to be honest, I didn’t like it at first.  But now it has grown on me…. The golds are shiny so it really goes well with the black… And I like the “messy” watercolored look as well.  There really isn’t much to this card. It’s pretty simple. Watercolored panel mounted onto a black card base, but I went ahead and filmed the card for you all anyway. Most of it is is soothing music as I watercolor…. You can watch the video here on my blog or over on my youtube channel in HD by clicking HERE! A thumbs up would surely be appreciated… 🙂

Oh!!  Before I go!!!  The winner from the Ellen Hutson Holiday II Release blog hop is Shari Arbogast. I emailed you!! How fun was that release? SURE to get you in the holiday spirit!!!! )
