Coloring with Metallic Watercolor

Hello friends!
I am popping in with a simple watercolored card. 
I am using this stamp as my example.
Penny Black - Cling Mounted Rubber Stamps - Tranquil Buds

Penny Black  Tranquil Buds (
Tranquil Buds (Simon Says Stamp)
Since the images are quite fine and small, I decided to use metallic color. Specifically, I used the GOLD color for the images. 

you brighten my day

First, I stamped a very faint background with 2nd Generation stamping.

you brighten my day-002

I used only a very small amount of water mixed with the gold watercolor. Once I finished coloring, I thought this Scrolls Half Edger makes a good addition.

I love the simple process and the results this gives.

This concluded my card. I hope this card brightens your day!
 Thanks for stopping by!

Love the gold watercolor and the edge die! Pretty card! I have gold watercolor too, but have just used mine for splattering onto cards. I'll have to give this a try.... pretty effect!

The gold watercolor and the scroll die bring elegance to a simple stamp set like a Tranquil Buds. Beautiful!

A truly gorgeous card. I looked closely in order to 'see' your 2nd. generation stamping---brilliant thinking and the scroll die is the perfect final touch!!!

WOW, this is gorgeous Virginia. I love the gold scroll added to the bottom, a great addition to the gold painted flowers. SO beautiful!

Love the way the gold looks against the green stamping and how you carried the gold down the the foiled scroll. It's so eye-catching and beautiful. said...
