Have you ever wondered what you could do with a white watercolor pencil?

I know it’s always been the most under-used pencil in my box but that all changes today!

 Basic White card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Starry Sky: 4″ x 5-1/4″ embossed with the Quatrefoil Tile embossing folder


When I made this birthday card I had it almost all done but I just wasn’t happy about how the flower blended into the background.


Watch this video to see how my flower went from nice to WOW with a white watercolor pencil!


I was going for a monochromatic look so I stamped my flower in Versamark ink, heat embossed it with white powder, and cut it out with a coordinating die.

I love how it turned out, but it just didn’t POP against the background quite like I wanted it to.

So I grabbed my white watercolor pencil and used it to color in my flower. I kept with obvious lines because I think it adds to the dimension of the flower.

BAM, look at what a difference that makes!
