Watercolor Week- Day 4

Welcome to Day Four of Watercolor Week here on my blog. If your new to my blog, you can find the previous three days here:

Today's card features Peerless Watercolors. I'm really loving the results they give...
Today's card was inspired by a card Laura Sterckx did for class. I used my bone folder and the crease in my paper trimmer to emboss lines in my cardstock. I used the debossed side. Not only does it give the background great texture, but also creates tunnels that the color spread out from. It's hard to explain, but so beautiful in real life.

Also, I wanted an ombre effect. So I added a very small amount of water towards the left side of the card and then gradually added more water towards the right side. More water equals lighter color. Less water equals more intense color.

I wanted a pop of color to be on the inside of the card instead of just white, so I turned the card inside out...
I finished off the card by heat embossing THIS lovely greeting in white and adding some enamel dots and a button.

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow...
