I never tire of watercolouring these gems. When they are embossed they just look awesome.

In this instance I have gold embossed on Canson Watercolour paper then watercolored with Zig Markers - Red/Orange and Yellow

Then stamped 'Awesome' sentiment and gold embossed it. Talk about quick and easy. the hardest part was

Getting rid of any little bits of colour that ended up outside the lines and the blob of yellow I somehow got in the top right corner. I don't think the camera does these gems and their colours justice. 
Each time I did one main colour and a touch of the other colour in the opposite corner.
