Pressed Petals Paper - I'm Going To Miss You!

Ornate Style Embossed Watercolor

Hello friends.  I am super excited to share these with you today.  Each card features the floral image from Ornate Style stamp set along with Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape and Shimmer White card stock.  If you have not noticed, I am on a bit of a watercolor kick lately. 

Make sure to watch my YouTube Video where I water colored with Stampin' UP! Colored Pencils. 

So my projects I am sharing today were done with Aqua Painters.  I picked up color from the lid of my ink pad.  With the ink pad closed, press the center of the lid... give it a little squeeze and when you open your ink pad, there will be ink on the inside lid.  

I wanted to show 3 Different Effects when you use different embossing powders.  Even though Stampin' Up! is retiring black, I went ahead and did anyways.  As an alternative, you can use Stazon Ink!  It is permanent and great for water-coloring.
