Crystal Lingo in Watercolor! | By Desiree Kuemmerle

Hello Everyone and Welcome Back!

Today’s project I will be featuring the Crystal Lingo Stamp and Die Set and adding some color using watercolors and watercolor pencils!

Ok as always, let’s get started! I started by stamping my image on to a piece of Bristol card stock measuring 4 in x 9 in. Once stamped I applied a layer of clear embossing powder and heat set the image.

Next, I taped my image down onto my craft matt and grab my watercolors. If you are more comfortable with another type of medium, then grab it! Feel free to use what you want to use to color your piece!

I started to apply my colors onto my paper keeping an area open to create a shape in the design. If you start at an image like this long enough your eyes will show you what is hidden sometimes!

I chose my next color and filed that in… I used my heat tool to set my colors and then used my water color pencils to add even more color and shading!

Time for the sentiment, I stamped my sentiment onto the same card stock used for my image and since it is an outline sentiment, I used an emboss it pen to fill in the letters and then applied clear embossing powder to heat set!

I cut three matts to layer with my image… Below are the measurements of the matts used for a card base measuring 3 ½ in x 8 ½ in.

First (Black) – 3 ½ in x 8 ½ in
Second (Aqua) – 3 ¼ in x 8 ¼ in
Third (Black) – 3 in x 8 in
