Nuvo Mousse Watercolor

Hey friends! Nuvo Mousse is so versatile and I have shared a few ways to use it in the past on cardmaking projects. Today’s video shares yet another unique way to use it… this time as watercolor!

To create my watercolor palette with the mousse, I used the Glass Media Mat and placed a bit of each color onto the glass with a palette knife. This surface is awesome to work on because it is so easy to clean up dried mousse without any residue or staining. I can’t tell you how many other cutting mats I have ruined with Nuvo Mousse in the past!

For the first card, I used the Best In the West stamp set to create a fun bonfire scene (I absolutely love that little rooster roasting a marshmallow stamp)! Then, I added water to the mousse and used a variety of colors to paint the scene. To control the shades, I wiped off the brush to get rid of the excess color. The mousse gives a really unique look that is slightly opaque and has a bit of mica. I finished off the card with a bit of Nuvo glaze to add a bit of dimension and shine.

On the second example, I created a more elegant looking card using the Roses Red die. I used the mousse to watercolor an outline of the die onto the background. This creates a cool shadow effect that makes the die cut stand out! Then, I added a few layers of  Shimmering Pearl embossing powder to the rose to make it stand out and adhered it all together onto the card.
