It remains no secret among my BSF's (Best Stamping Friends) that I'm not a big fan of coloring when it comes to stamping. I can't seem to grasp the shading concept with Copics. Colored pencils seem to "scratchy" feeling. Blender pens are intriguing, yet baffling, all at the same time. And, oh watercoloring just flat out scares me. But, then I saw this one card by Connie Collins and I was mesmerized. Speechless. It was beautiful. It was elegant. And, yikes, it involved "coloring."
So, for my Design Team card with the Paper Craft Crew today I'm stepping outside of my comfort zone and giving coloring a try. . . Another try. Again. . .
Stunning, right? I found the trick lies in gold (or silver) heat embossing with the watercolor. It really ups the wow factor. Want to up the wow factor even more? Dry emboss on gold foil paper. Wow. Double wow.
