Hello, it’s Gaylynn here with another installment of my Watercolor Wednesday series. Today, I am sharing a way to watercolor with acrylic paint.
For today’s project, I created a background for this handmade card using watercolor with paint. Adding enough water helps the paint flow and blend better.

I made a video tutorial for this watercolor world card. It includes instructions along the way throughout the video, however, a written process follows below.
Watercolor with Acrylic Paint
By Gaylynn Martling for Unity’s Watercolor Wednesday
(See also the video tutorial for this project.)
To begin, stamp with embossing ink onto watercolor paper. Heat emboss. I used gold embossing powder.
Dab sections with water before adding color. I used watered down acrylic paint for watercolor.
Dab color into the water puddles. Brush off color from embossed areas. Add water to blend color.
Heat set. Repeat watercolor onto other color areas as desired. Then dry completely.
Finally, cut the art panel at angles, using a paper trimmer. Assemble the card.
Here is another look at my card.
