My next design is very similar but this time I tried mixing colours with the Metallic Watercolor.

My sentiment is from the Hello and Hugs bundle with a sprinkle of White Satin Sequins.

  1. Beautiful cards Therese. I bought this set but havenโ€™t used it yet, so I really appreciate the amazing inspiration โค๏ธ

  2. Black water color card? Yes, I have some! Have I tried using it yet? Thanks for this gorgeous nudge! Therese, your cards are phenomenal!
    =]

  3. Gorgeous shine! These could make great sympathy cards…..not great that you have to make sympathy cards, but you know what I mean ๐Ÿ˜‰ Simple, and elegant.

    1. Yes, I know exactly what you mean, I much prefer making sympathy cards when I don’t ‘need them’ so these would be perfect to recreate!

  4. I am INSPIRED!!! have the black wc paper and some metallic paints – now to decide on a stamp!! hugs, Betty

    1. Ooh so happy that you were inspired to try, it took me a long time to get hold of some black watercolour cardstock (probably because there isn’t a real affordable version out there and I had to take the plunge lol.) but happy that I did. Hope you have fun Betty!

  5. The watercolour colours seem bolder on the black paper. I like the the two tone green on the second card- subtle and gorgeous.

  6. Oh this is such a stunning effect. I love metallics on black, so gorgeous.

  7. Absolutely lovely. Have been using the metallics recently, and love the effects. Just a heads-up on the mixing water – I let it settle for a couple of days, drain off the clear on top, then use the metallic water left to paint and repaint and repaint (leaving to dry between each paint) onto white or unbleached watercolour paper, to use as bases or backgrounds for future cards. The glimmer in the paper looks great, and worth the effort.

  8. Therese, you always blow me away! Wow! To have your talent…. gorgeous cards! I absolutely love black paper of any kind! Warm hugs from San Antonio, Texas. ๐Ÿ’œ
