Peerless Watercolor & Gold Brush Lettering

Hi all! Kristina here. :)

Today I have a video for you of a card I made using the Sketch Ranunculus stamp set, Peerless Watercolors, and a bit of brush lettering with FineTec gold watercolors.


I stamped the flowers and leaves in VersaMark ink and embossed them using Rich Pale Gold embossing powder from Wow. The melted embossing powder has a slick surface and resists the watercolors on top. This makes it super fast and easy to watercolor over the top!


I used four Peerless Watercolor colors for the painting: Gamboge Yellow, Peacock Blue, Tea Rose Pink, and Olive Green. All four colors are from the Bonus Pack of Peerless Watercolors. I like to use a water brush when painting with Peerless Watercolors because it’s so simple and easy.

To finish off the card, I used FineTec gold watercolor to hand letter the greeting. For a few tips on brush lettering, be sure to watch the video below. :)

I hope you enjoy the card and video! :)


  1. Gorgeous card Kirstina, I just got this stamp set and as it’s the colouring challenge this week, plan on doing some watercolour with it. Love the peerless watercolours you used, thanks for the video!

  2. Your watercoloring and hand lettering are just gorgeous and inspiring!! Thanks for sharing yet another amazing creation!

  3. I’m starting to see Gold embossing out there in blog land lately. Never thought to use it. It’s so pretty, I’m going to do this on my next card. Thanks K for the video. The card is so pretty.
