Hello, it’s Gaylynn here with another installment of my Watercolor Wednesday series. I am sharing a way to use heat embossing to create a trendy woodgrain watercolor card background
With watermark stamping and a little heat embossing, this background is ready for color. Adding watercolor to the prepared panel creates a fabulous wood grain watercolor background for card making.
Sentiment: May all your wishes come true.

I made a quick video tutorial for this. It includes instructions along the way throughout the video. However, the written process follows below.
Woodgrain Background Watercolor Card
By Gaylynn Martling for Unity’s Watercolor Wednesday
(See also the video tutorial for this project.)
Using the Original Misti, stamp the background with watermark ink like VersaMark. Heat emboss in white embossing powder.
Die-cut or trim the background. Add watercolor in brown tones, darker along the edges.
I used Altenew half pans watercolor with 80 lb cardstock and a mixture of ink smooshing and water brush applications.
(The flower was pre-colored using distress markers for watercolor.)
Heat set the panel and then blend more with a baby wipe. Assemble the card.
Here is another look.
