Two treats are in store for you today….first, I’ll be watercoloring on black cardstock with beautiful shiny paints. Secondly – you get a peek at the newly renovated MISTI stamping tool! (NOTE: I now know there is black watercolor paper – I suggest that more than using cardstock!)

Watercolor on Black Cardstock

I received some darling stamps from my friend Stephanie at Clearly Besotted Stamps – and the sets had lots of small images. (No longer available.) That made them PERFECT for trying out watercoloring on black cardstock with Finetec paints! There’s a sweet set of 12 shimmery colors that’s got some interesting hues in it that you might find tantalizing.

Wasn’t that fun? Remember to be careful about how much water you use on the black cardstock; the Bazzill worked, but with some warping. It wasn’t really bad, and flattened out easily by pressing it in a book overnight. But run some tests on your paper to see just how much water you can get away with first.
