I embossed on water color paper with a Papertrey Ink's stamp set (black ep) and then watercolored using my reinkers in Riding Hood Red, So Saffron and Pacific Point. I used Golden's GEL MEDIUM over the top of the watercolored piece - its a great product you can get it in gloss, semi or matte and it adds texture while sealing in your project. And what I really love about it - it dries! It really dries! It *really* dries! Modge Podge always stays tacky here in Florida - I assume that there is just to much humidity. There is a closeup below, so you can see the texture the gel medium adds when dry - this is with a thick layer added, you can do a thinner layer and smooth it more - but I like the texture.
