Today I’m experimenting with gold watercoloring using a set of Gansai Tambi paints and the gorgeous multi-faceted heart from Neat & Tangled’s new Heart of Gold set. This post is part of a blog hop to celebrate Neat & Tangled’s 3rd birthday – Happy Birthday Neat & Tangled!! Hopefully you’ve come here from the totally amazing Yoonsun Hur but if not, check out all the hop details below :D
When I started playing with the Heart of Gold set I initially gold heat embossed the image before painting. Isn’t that gorgeous just on its own! However, I really wanted to paint with the gold watercolor included in the large set of Gansai Tambi paints. When I did the gold-on-gold lost some of the multi-faceted look so I changed things up and white heat embossed on Canson watercolor card which allowed the image to shine along with that gorgeous gold paint!
The sentiment is white heat embossed on black card, trimmed out and adhered over a swirl of silver thread. I added a few sequins, a couple of gems, mounted on a fog card base and called it done; I didn’t want to distract anymore from that shimmering heart :D
Now lets chat about the blog hop! Hopefully you’ve come here from Yoonsun Hur but if not here’s the hop order, starting with the Neat & Tangled Blog where you can find all the details.
