Step 1

First, get your beautiful flower stamps. It's better to choose one with bigger petals but you can use any design you prefer.

Wet your stamps with Versamark and stamp it repeatedly into a piece of white paper. Make sure the paper is thick enough so it won't get damaged from the watermark easily.

Get your black embossing powder and sprinkle it on your stamped flowers. Make sure you cover the entire flower image.

And we got our flower image! It's really nice and shiny!

Now, get your watercolor and mix some colors in an acrylic block. You can use other palettes for mixing, but I find it easier with my acrylic block.

Step 5

The great thing about embossing our flower stamps is that they will be able to resist our watercolor! Using your watered down paint brush, carefully fill the flower image around with watercolor. Start by having a darker shade on the inside and going lighter outwards the petals.

For my flowers, I used an orange and pink color and they look absolutely fantastic! Don't worry about going over the edge of your flowers since we will be cutting around it anyway.

Step 6

You can actually do it another way too: instead of stamping the flower image first, you can opt to start with the watercolors.

Just paint some watercolor into an area in your paper and let it dry. Afterwards, you can stamp the flower and proceed with embossing.

Personally, I think this method looks more organic but either way it creates lovely flower embellishments!

Step 7

Once all dry and you're happy with how it looks, you can cut the flower out with a scissor.
