Watercolor Washes and White Embossed Images

No secret, I'm enjoying watercoloring.  It is such a simple tool and the results are fabulous.  For this card, I used this post as inspiration.  I decided to make multiples as i wanted to try different colors and intensity of color.  I followed the same technique - wet on wet watercoloring using my Mission Gold watercolors.

I super love how these cards turned out.  They were easy enough to make and fun to play with watercoloring.

I played a bit with coloring the leaves.  I found I didn't like this look nearly as well as I enjoyed the other card fronts.  It's a nice enough card, just like the monochromatic look of the others a bit better.

What card sets have you been making?  If you've never considered making multiples, let me encourage you.  Because all of the supplies were out and available, this set of 5 cards only took a couple of hours with drying time and assembly.  Go ahead, give it a try!


  1. Very beautiful. I especially like the pink and blues. I agree, monochrome is prettier.

  2. Your cards are stunning and I am drooling over that blue card. A jaw dropper; wow!!!!!

  3. I love watercoloring, it gives such soft look to the project, beautiful work!

  4. These are stunning! How beautiful the combination of embossing and water colour! TFS


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
