Watercolour Technique with Wink Of Stella Pen!

Karla here today, sharing some of the fun techniques I've been working on in the latest Online Card Classes - Watercolor For Cardmakers class. Jennifer McGuire showcased a beautiful gold embossed flower on Day 1 and I wanted to try it with this bird and flower image I have.

I coloured in parts of my image with Distress and Tombow markers and blended them, using my Wink Of Stella pen. My pen was actually empty and I refilled it with water, which mixed with the shimmer still in the pen and it works perfectly! I layered my watercoloured piece on some papers from the Basic Grey Highline Collection on top of a purple card folded to 5 1/2" square.

This wasn't the greatest watercolor paper I had around, so I think it would have blended nicer with a different paper, but I love the gold embossed image!

Thanks so much for joining me today!! I hope you're enjoying your week so far!
