These cards were inspired by a technique that Jerri uses for many of her designs - gold embossed image and markers on watercolor paper. It's really easy and the results are so pretty. I hope you will try it! This geranium image is so lovey, I chose not to use anything around it.
- Ran anti-static bag over watercolor paper. Stamped image on paper, sprinkled with detail embossing powder and heat set. I did this for several images at one time.
- Colored the image by adding small dabs of color with the markers and spreading the color with a waterbrush, I really like color contrast. For the leaves I used two greens and a yellow. For the pots, I used two shades - a light and a dark, or came back with the same shade after the first coat dried. Play around with the colors and see what works for you. I used Tombow markers, but you can use any water based markers for this technique, such as Marvy or Stampin' Up!
- Cut image out around the border and adhered to card base that matched the color of the pedals.
