Watercolor - Easy Peasy

One fool proof method for waster coloring with little risk is to heat emboss a stamped design then just paint in the lines. The emboss edges are raised so it keeps the color inside the lines and you don't have to worry about any blending if you don't want to.

I took a Papertrey Ink stamp, heat embossed it in white and then working one color at a time, gave the area a wet wash then using a wet brush picked up some color and added the color to the wet section, this causes the color to bloom in larger areas or you just fill in the section. Too much then use a paper towel or dry brush to pick up the excess.

For my flower I did overlays some colors to add more interest and allow them to bleed together a bit. The center is nontraditional but I really didn't want to use black.

After I painted the flower I diecut and popped it up on foam tape, then added my sentiment and voila!
