Pooled Watercolors



  1. heavy weight watercolor paper -- 140 lb.
  2. Adirondack reinkers -- Purple Twilight, Cool Peri, Lettuce or any other brand reinkers
  3. water spritzer
  4. water pen or water and paint brush
  5. Starfire glitter G1017
  6. white embossing powder
  7. Roses stamps from My Rose Garden set 402
  8. Versa Mark ink pad 99702
  9. heat tool
  10. Sakura glue pen 99202

Stamp roses onto the watercolor paper using Versa Mark ink. Sprinkle white embossing powder over the stamped images and heat with a heat tool. Spritz water over the roses until it pools and drop a few drops of  the lighter color of reinker onto sprizted rose. Move the color around with the water pen. Keep doing this with each petal of the rose.

When you are finished with the lighter color, drop a few drops of the darker reinker in a few places on the rose to add depth. Then do the same on the leaves, using the green reinker.  Let dry. You will notice that some of the color may bleed out of the embossed lines, but you will be cutting out the rose to layer on a card and this will not matter.

Use a glue pen to dot randomly on the rose. Sprinkle on Starfire glitter. Cut out the rose to use on a card. I hope you enjoy doing this technique!
