Watercolor + Unity = Awesome.

Hi there friends! It's Unity hop day. I am currently taking Watercolor for Card Makers, a class hosted by Online Card Classes. It's awesome, and you should take it, too!
I created this card using the rubber cement emboss technique. You simply apply rubber  cement to the stamped image, wait for it to dry, watercolor over and then rub off the cement. Cool, huh?

I created this one using emboss resist (embossing powder) and then painting on watercolors.
