SSD blog hop - Layered watercolor wash on hot press watercolor paper

Hi Stampers!
It's again that time of the month, time for another Skipping Stones Design tip/technique blog hop.
Today I have a quick tip for you on how to do the watercolor wash onto hot press watercolor paper.
For my watercolor wash I used the mijello mission gold watercolors. I started by adding water to the paper  and then applied a layer of watercolors, after that using a heat gun I dried the background. Then applied another layer or watercolor (on dry paper) and then another one.
After everything was dried, I stamped the images from the Victorian Summer set with versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. Then die cut the panel and three layers of the Hello die cut from gold foil paper. I adhered the 3 diecuts and adhered them to the panel and then to the card base.

Scroll down for the list of all participants of the blog hop, and leave them some love :)
