Metallic Watercolor With Hero Arts Glimmer Inks

Have you experimented with watercolor grounds yet? How about metallic watercolors?

Join Emily for today’s video tutorial and learn to use metallic watercolors like the Hero Arts Glimmer Metallic Inks with the Daniel Smith Mars Black Grounds to create stunning cards for fall!

Hi there! Emily Midgett back this month with another installment of the Exploring With Emily series. I’ve been playing with the Daniel Smith Mars Black watercolor grounds again, this time pairing them with Hero Arts Glimmer Inks and the Essentials by Ellen Mondo Oak Leaf stamp set.

These metallic inks are perfect for use on this black surface; they have an opaque quality that makes them shimmer beautifully on the black watercolor surface. Watch the video for all of the details!

    The colors are gorgeous against the black, I’ve never tried either of these products.
