Add That Metallic Shine

 Hello friends!
Once again, I am popping in with my 2nd project with Etched Flower Buds Die
https://shrsl.com/2dhf8
This lovely die is from Simon Says Stamp's latest release "Send Happiness".
For my 1st take, I used my colored paper with Distress Oxide Spray.
I miss your face

 This time, I used Metallic Paper that I created with Altenew Metallic Watercolor.
The results are pretty bright and shiny!
I love you-001


 I also have Prima Market Watercolor. The price is much cheaper and the result is still pretty good if you don't want to invest an expensive set.

i heart u
To create watercolor paper, all you need is Bristol or Watercolor paper and Metallic Watercolor such as Altenew Metallic Watercolor. Since I made a large sheet of metallic watercolor paper, I can easily die cut as many buds as it allows on a card. 

All those etched details are what made this die so special.
i love you-002
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Just love your metallic watercolored flowers, Virginia! Those would be good for doing Kathy Racoosin's print-making watercoloring technique!!

Very pretty with the metallics.

Both cards are really pretty, but the shine you got from your DIY metallic paper is amazing. I am quite taken by the card. Love the way you did the sentiment and the metallic thread (my favorite card accent, which you introduced to me through your cards).
