I really loved these watercolors guys. 
All. The. Shimmer. 
In order to show off the shimmer in the best way possible I decided to use black cardstock. 
Full transparency this is not watercolor card stock. 
Because I didn't use watercolor cardstock I had to use a minimal amount of water. 
Still worked amazing. 


I started by masking a small square to make room for my sentiment. I just used a post it note which totally worked by the way. Just trim it down to the size you need. I traced my square with a white gel pen to mark where to stamp my sentiment. 
I stamped the rose bouquets from Forever in Love across the top in clear ink and then removed the mask. I heat set the flowers in white embossing powder. Make sure to clean up your stray embossing powder before heating it. Since the sentiment is meant to be a clean square it's important there's no white speckles inside. 


Once tht was done I did the same with my sentiment. 
Then the fun part...
Painting! 

Like I said earlier I used minimal water since I wasn't working on watercolor paper. 
I did layer the colors to add variety of color to the shimmer. 
Once the painting was done I re-masked my square and spattered a very little bit of Prasiolite in the background. 


Here you can see a close up of the shimmer. 
It's so beautiful in real life! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Zinia Redo.
