Watercolor 36 Pan Set
Watercolor like a pro with this affordable watercolor pan set! This beautiful set of 36 vibrant watercolor half-pans coordinates perfectly with our line of ink. They are intensely pigmented, fade minimally when drying, and some colors have lovely granulating effects. They are stored in a convenient plastic case, designed with space for your brush (included) and a palette in the lid for mixing. Some of the case lids snap off upon opening and can easily snap back on after you are finished creating so you can store your mixed paints with the rest of the pan colors.

To start, I grabbed plain white envelopes from my stash. In Japan, we often use these tall envelopes, but you can use any kind you have.
Then, I embossed the envelopes like in the picture below. It is beautiful as-is when embossed, but I added watercolors onto the embossed images to make them pop!
Altenew's Watercolor 36 Pan Set has all the colors you need to create a masterpiece!
I hope that my fun and easy paper crafting idea featuring embossing folders inspires you to create a new project today.
