Watercolour Hello

Watercolouring and gold embossing...just a few of my favorite things! I ordered this amazing stamp set from Concord and 9th a few weeks ago along with some other fun goodies, which I have been having a lot of fun with. I haven't ever ordered anything from them before and when the package came, I realized that Concord and 9th is literally a half an hour away from my home! How fun is that? I will definitely be ordering more from them in the future.





I stamped the floral piece onto 140lb. watercolour paper using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using gold powder. Once that was done, it was just me and the watercolours doing their job. I especially love watercoloring embossed images because of the way the color pools into each section of the raised image. 






Once it was colored, I adhered it to a Kraft card base and added just a few embellishments and the "Hello" sentiment! When you have a focal image as gorgeous as this, it does all the work! Thanks for fluttering by! Follow me on Instagram @kellylunceford
