In my card for today, I packed a few techniques that I wanted to do all into one! One of those techniques is incorporating the new Prima Metallic Accents into watercolor. The Metallic Accents shine their best when they are added into – or on top of – traditional watercolors. I added swatches of the Ultraviolet color onto some watercoloring that I did using PH Martin India Inks. The results are SO beautiful… you can best see it by watching the video below.

I then cut the watercolored background from some Winnie and Walter dies; the In A Word Happy and Birthday sets.

Another technique I’ve been wanting to do again is use the Tonic Studios Nuvo Glimmer Paste. One of my favorite glimmer paste colors is Moonstone; this is a clear glimmer paste that looks amazing on both white and colored cardstocks alike. I wanted my sentiment to be the star of the show here, so I chose to work with white cardstock underneath the paste. The fun confetti pattern that I made with the Glimmer Paste is from the Winnie and Walter Spotty stencil.

Finally, the last technique I wanted to include in the card is the addition of stitching detail. Normally I would use stitching dies to create this effect, but I recently got the We R Memory Keepers Stitch Happy sewing machine (and I LOVE it!). I used the machine to add pink stitching around the edges of my card. In the video I show you how I did it… I’m not a sewing “expert”, but I have been enjoying incorporating the real stitching details into my cards!
