A Whole Lotta Watercolouring!

I've got lots of projects to share this evening.

The first 3 cards feature watercolour background techniques. The first one involved an ink direct to block technique.

These next two cards featured misting an inked background stamp.

The next one features watercolouring a stamped image. So basically, I stamped the flowers and then added water with a fine brush.

This card features watercolouring an embossed background image. For this one, I embossed the image, then coloured tiny bits of colour into each shape. I finished that off with a fine brush and water.

Here's a close up look of that effect:

This last card features a DIY twinkling watercolours of sorts. I once again embossed the image, then added very small bits of colour with Stampin' Up! markers. Then I mixed in some white Pearl Ex powder into my water, and voila, instant sparkle!

I've included a close-up to try and illustrate the effect a bit better.
