For watercoloring this Bristol Smooth surface paper works great!
Just don't oversaturate with water and it won't warp. I
cut it to fit printer and printed out image.
I trimmed watercolor paper so I could watercolor my image.
I used the Westcottbrand 9inch paper trimmer to trim bristol smooth paper.
Choose watercolor medium. I used Kuretake.
Grab the rest of your supplies, mat, watercolor brushes:
Silver Black Velvet sizes 1,2 and 4. I don't use a water brush on this
paper as I want to control water flow. Paper towel and image.
Here are the colors I used. I splatted some bluish gold
and let dry completely before putting card together.
I used a pre-made clear acetate card base. I changed the color
to go inside to a darker pink with a faint stripe on it.
Here's my finished card. I added a piece of gold heart vellum,
die cut balloons, tiny hearts and bow. I cut the vellum with 9 in paper trimmer
and cut ends with 6 in titanium precision scissors
