More additions to add to your watercolor

You might have noticed on the window scene with the bricks that I showed you earlier that I added one of the clear dimensional adhesives to give the look of glass. I love to do that and here I did it on some of the bubbles. You might have to zoom in to see that. I also love rhinestones and gems...not sure who made the green glass I used as embellishments above, but usually K & Company is my company of choice for that sort of thing. I love the look of torn paper...watercolor, mulberry or just card stock.
The snow for the lantern was done with liquid applique....another fun product.
Here again, on the lemonade, I not only cut some extra images and mounted on top to give dimension, I also used the clear dimensional stuff to give a shiny look.
The stacked pumpkins were stamped and embossed on black paper...I then used bleach to bleach out the black and then painted them with watercolor. Use a Q-tip to paint on the will ruin brushes...different card stocks bleach out differently.
