Life is a great big CANVAS watercolour

After doing the card yesterday with gold embossing I decided to go one with white embossing. This time I embossed on Tim Holtz watercolour paper so I decided to use the distress inks.

I squished one colour at a time onto a piece of acetate, squirted with water and also added some Perfect Pearls Mist then squished onto my watercolour paper. Then wipe acetate and add next colour and repeat.  
Then you just play around until your happy. Try not to overplay as you can end up with some pretty crappy looking pieces. My bin is testament to that as I decided to try on some blank pieces of watercolour card stock and overplayed a few times and just left for another day.

I wish you could see the sparkle IRL its fantastic. The Perfect Pearls added a lovely cream sheen but it doesn't show up in the photos.

I am happier with this version of the card colours wise but liked the gold embossing better than the white. So of course now I need to do one on this watercolour cardstock with gold embossing.

Will enter this in

I've tried smooshing once and it was a disaster - overworked it. Must give it another try. This is fab! Xx
