Watercoloring a Stamped Panel

Hello friends! 
I am popping in with a quick post about Altenew's NEW Artists Watercolor 24 Pan Set.
*All products used a linked at the end of this post.
For me, the easiest way to test out new watercolor set is to do some Emboss Resist.
I am using Vase Fillers as my example.
thanks a bunch 

To start, I white-embossed the images on Watercolor paper TWICE. I wanted the white to be very bright and prominent.  I then chose all the rich tones and applied watercolors.
thanks a bunch -001
 For this set of Artists Watercolor, I love the CREAMINESS and how the colors BLEND. It is definitely superior than the average watercolor sets.

Once I am satisfied with the color mix, I let it dry and die cut it with Rounded Frame Die.
thanks a bunch -002

 To show off  the color and contrast, I added a piece of white die cut.
I felt that it can use a little embellishment and so, I decided to use some black string.

I like this as a coloring study. Really feel like it's easy for practice, but still makes a good card.

The white embossing on the orange background look great with the kraft cardstock. Like the addition of he white card stock and the black string. Great contrast.
