Autumn Festival Watercolor Brush Markers

Hello friends!
I am sharing a card that I did over my Instagram the other day.
It was an impromptu design and I didn't quite have a plan at the time.
I let me creative license "take the rein" and see how it goes!

I thought I would try out some more with the new "Autumn Festival" Brush Markers.

You can see my process over Instagram under the highlight "Brush Markers" (see link here)

 Part of the fun with these markers is that you can mix the colors up easily.
For example, I didn't know that the Tree Bark and Winter Fog can make the color looks like Mulberry wine (see the background)!

I must also point out that it is worth getting a small mix media tool like this.
The small rubber applicator makes spreading the embossing paste much an easier a task.
This card seems a little bit complex, but really, it all started with the coloring on a tag...

Lovely color and texture on your tag. The line art stamping is the perfect foil for it.

Your tag card is so gorgeous. I absolutely love the Mulberry Wine color you got by mixing the colors. That is a such a great color. The way you did the embossing paste--looks so nice. That mixed media tool you highlighted is definitely worth looking into. Love all the texture you have on the tag!
