Gansai Tambi Watercolors

I've always been somewhat intimidated by painting, but have been doing more and more watercoloring lately and am falling in love with how much fun it is!  These backgrounds are actually one of the first techniques I tried using watercolors, and I've used these in a few projects now.  The gold in the background adds just a hint of extra special elegance, and any color combination could be used!

I have a few favorites such as Peerless, Finetec metallics, but for these backgrounds, Gansai Tambi is definitely my go-to.  

Gansai Tambi set of 36

The colors are so vibrant, and I love making several backgrounds at a time, to keep for when I need a quick card on-the-go.  I use the blue for underwater backgrounds.

Here's a link to a video I made showing how simple these backgrounds are!
