Jane's Doodles - One Layer Watercolor Card

Hi everyone! I have two quick cards for you today because I'm not feeling the best. I got some new Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor markers and am LOVING the soft colors. One of my favorite techniques to do with watercolors is make one layer cards. I think watercolors are so pretty that they don't need to compete with a lot of layers. Today I used the Anemone stamp set again from Jane's Doodles. I absolutely love water coloring florals. You don't have to be perfect because I think the beauty is in the imperfections. 

I started both of these cards on premade Strathmore Watercolor Cards. They come 5x7 but I prefer to make A2 (4.25"x5.5") cards so I trim them down. Then I inked up each stamp with Tsukineko Versamark Ink and used white embossing powder to emboss each floral image before coloring. Once all the coloring was done and dry I just added a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and called it done! I think they turned out so pretty. 

Are you on Periscope? I am addicted to this new platform of sharing live videos. I shared this morning how I colored these stamps and you can catch the replay HERE for 24 hours! Hope you will check it out and follow me to catch my future scopes. :D It is really fun to interact with you live as I create for you!
