I have been playing with Pearlescent watercolor paint. It is quite shiny and has a lot of shimmer when dry. This card will be posted to the Double D Poinsettia challenge and the Watercooler Wednesday challenge.
There was challenge at Splitcoast Stampers to watercolor using black watercolor paper. I wanted to try this, but didn’t want to make the purchase till I decided if I might enjoy the process. I used Hobby Lobby Extra Heavy Weight cardstock, which is at least 100 pounds. It held the watercolor nicely. When the images were all dry, I splattered the front with gold shimmer spray. I like the card and it will be mailed next year.
