Rainbow Watercolor Over Embossing with Lydia

CatherineCP Designs, CPD Ink, Embossing, Watercolor

Hi there everyone! It's Lydia here and I'm so happy to be here with you on Catherine's blog.  Today I have a card to share that uses one of my favourite techniques- rainbow watercolour.


I started by stamping Doodle Garden Background Stamp onto some watercolor cardstock using embossing ink and then heat embossing with white embossing powder. I then covered this piece with clean, clear water. After the whole piece is nice a wet I dropped in colors to create the effect- for this I used Rose Petals, Polished, Shea Butter, Seafoam, Stone Blue and Sugared Lavender. I then left this to dry naturally.


For the sentiment I cut Create Die twice, once from black cardstock and a second time from black foam. I layered these up with the cardstock one on top. To add to this I stamped ‘everyday' from Eat Sleep Create Stamp Set onto a banner made from white cardstock.

When the watercolor panel was dry I added this to a card base and adhered the sentiment into place. To finish I added a few coloured enamel dots.


Thank you so much for stopping by! And I do hope you enjoyed my card.

Hugs, Lydia
