Hi, it’s Gaylynn here with another installment of my Watercolor Wednesday series. Here is a fun mini gift bag decorated with embossing and a coordinating teacup watercolor tag.
This mini gift box background was die-cut and then heat embossed. A stamped and fussy cut watercolor tag was added for a sweet teacup accent. As an alternative to die-cutting, stamping can be done on an existing solid gift bag instead.
Sentiment: Tea love. You are tea-riffic.

I made a quick video tutorial for this. It includes instructions along the way throughout the video. However, the written process follows.
Tea Love Watercolor Tag + Embossed Mini Gift Box
By Gaylynn Martling for Unity’s Watercolor Wednesday
(See also the video tutorial for this project.)
Begin by stamping die-cut gift box pieces. Or stamp on an existing solid gift bag. I also heat embossed in white.
On watercolor paper, stamp and emboss the tea cup and sentiment. I used ColorBox ink and clear embossing powder.
Heat set. Add watercolor in teal and brown shades. I used Altenew watercolor half pans and a water brush.
Heat set. Fussy cut the tea cup. Assemble the gift box to include the sentiment and the cup as the gift tag.
Here is another look.
