Honeycomb Watercolor Technique

Hi there and happy Friday!  Hope you've been enjoying the cooler temperatures and have fun plans for the weekend.  My weekend is another busy one.  So without further adieu, let's get to the card.  This watercolor technique began with the Honeycomb embossing folder.  Ink was randomly sponged onto the open embossing folder with a dauber (the side with the Stampin' Up! logo), then lightly spritzed with water.  A piece of watercolor paper was placed into the embossing folder.  The embossing folder was closed and then rubbed with my fingers to transfer/move the ink.  Results will be different each time, depending on the placement of colors and amount of pressure used to rub the embossing folder.  The colors used in this sample are Blushing Bride, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Pistachio Pudding.  Various punched pieces were used to embellish the watercolor background, which is layered onto a Crisp Cantaloupe card base.  A leaf cut from Glimmer paper using the Little Leaves Sizzlit die (now retired) finishes off the card with bit of bling.

Must get packed up for a Crop later this afternoon.  Have a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by today!
