Hello, it’s Gaylynn here with another installment of my Watercolor Wednesday series. Today, I am sharing a set of gold embossed watercolor gift tags.
These gold embossed watercolor handmade tags are ready to be added to a gift bag, gift box, wine bottle, etc. I used stamping along with heat embossing and Sakura Koi watercolors.

Hello Lovely by Gina K Designs
For this project, I made a quick video tutorial for the gift tags. It includes instructions along the way throughout the video. However, a written process follows below.
Floral Gold Embossed Watercolor Gift Tags
By Gaylynn Martling for Unity’s Watercolor Wednesday
(See also the video tutorial for this project.)
Prepare watercolor paper for heat embossing by adding powder prior to stamping. I used an EK Success powder tool.
Each are stamped and embossed in gold on each of the trimmed gift tags. They were heat set prior to adding watercolor.
Add a watercolor background by painting over the embossed areas. I mixed colors to get light pink and gray shades.
I used Sakura Koi watercolors for these gift tags.
To remove puddles or lighten areas, remove watercolor using a damp brush or blot with a paper towel, optional.
Add a second layer of color toward the center, if you want.
Heat set and then assemble.
Here is another look at these gift tags.
