Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

In this video, Melanie demonstrates a watercolored emboss resist technique and surprise, only uses one color to do so!  It’s remarkable how many shades you get from just one color, and a monochromatic design is always so impactful.  She uses the purple lilacs image from her Stately Flowers series for both the focal point and background. These realistic hand drawn flowers are lovely for any occasion and are so fun for a variety of inky techniques and coloring! We hope you enjoy today’s simple video and be confident that no matter what your skill level or experience, you can produce beautiful, hand-painted effects on your cards in no time with this technique, for one-of-a-kind pieces of art.

Oh yea, this is cool. The white embossing with the black sentiments & butterflies are the perfect contrast to the purple.

I love all the cards that you make. I have never seen that type of water color where can I find out more about them?
