Emboss Resist with a Watercolor Wash

Here's a project that combines 2 techniques:we create a colorful background with a watercolor wash and our focal point "pops" with an emboss resist.

Each of these projects was made with watercolor paper. For easy movement of the ink you'll want to start with damp paper.  Stampin'Up! does sell a Spritzer that creates a fine mist for good coverage.  

Stampin'Up! also sells a set of water painters. These are paint brushes with the water in the barrel of the brush, for easy no-mess painting. And the set has a wide bristle brush perfect for the watercolor wash technique.

The first sample was heat embossed in gold
. . . so the sentiment is highlighted with a small strip of gold foil

The resist technique looks great with white embossing too.

The watercolor wash technique works well with a black image too
just be sure to use StazOn, or another non-water soluble ink.

 Its easy to create a watercolor wash background, it looks good over plain black stamping and really "pops" with an emboss resist. Check out the supply list below. You'll probably find you already own much of what you need.  And I have easy buying links for you if you need any of these supplies or any other Stampin'Up! product.
