Video: White Watercolor Splatter with Stampers Favorites

Good morning! Today I will show you an emboss resist watercolor technique and how to do simple splattering to add texture and a more painterly look to your cards and projects.  I made this for Silke's MIUM Make a Splatter challenge at StampTV and I was so happy with it, decided it was perfect for this week's video! This butterfly is beautiful for painting panes of stained glass color, but a similar design can be recreated by repeatedly stamping any of the other images in my Stamper Favorites set. Please enjoy! 

Gina K. Designs Stamper Favorites stamp set
Gina K. Pure Luxury White cardstock (3 7/8” x 5 1/8” and 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”)
Gina K. Black Onyx ink and Tsukineko Versamark pads
Spectrum Noir Aqua markers set-Primary
Large acrylic block or palette, clear embossing powder, heat gun, water brush
Gina K. Pure Luxury white stitched ribbon, adhesive foam squares

The one on the right is the one I did before my video and showed at the beginning (and on Facebook earlier, see below). The one on the left is the one I demonstrated for you live.  Fun to see all the differences, with the same color markers.  No two watercolors are alike, but I really like how they both turned out! You can do this!
