Stampin’ Up! Natures Harvest bundle has been a favorite in my craft room. It can be brought to life when you create on black paper. I once remember someone telling me you could not watercolor on black paper, will they obviously did not know me or Cindy. Actually you can heat emboss and watercolor Stampin’ Up Basic White card stock . Let’s take a look at one card made with watercolors, heat embossing and all on Basic Black card stock.

Learn more about watercolor pencils.
Let’s talk about Stampin’ Up Watercolor pencils. First they offer 2 assortments, each with different colors. You will want both sets, to have maximum color options. Next, they are true watercolor pencils. So often you will purchase pencils that will not work with water. (Crazy I know). They are actually make from wax and require a special liquid to break down the color. Not sure how that can be called water color pencils, but that is what happens. With Stampin’ Up! watercolor pencils, a few drops of water is all you need for easy coloring. This also makes it easy to blend using watercolor pencils.
I was once told that you need special paper to do watercoloring. Well it is my experience that with good watercoloring pencils, you can enjoying coloring on any Stampin’ Up! card stock. Remember I said, “I only use a few drops of water.” Well as long as you do not saturate your paper with water, you really do not need watercolor paper.
