WATERCOLOR EMBOSSING FOLDER

I just love re-purposing my embossing folders!  This technique is so beautiful and really showcases our bolder embossing folders.  And of course the who doesn't like an easy way of water coloring?? 


Here's what you do:  Take your favorite embossing folder and daub colors onto the raised area.  Next, spritz folder and insert your watercolor paper.  Push down to "stamp" the water color paper.


As you can see, the more you spritz the more blending the colors will do.  The plastic of the embossing folder will make the water kind of "bubble" up like it does on a waxed vehicle.
The bolder your embossing folder, the bolder your pattern.


I used some bold bright colors.  (which all retired in May)  You can use any colors you'd like, just daub away and spritz.  Then you can coordinate to any occasion or style.
