Thank You Card, Watercolor

Comparing Watercolor-Mama Elephant Botanic Thanks

Hello and welcome back to my blog! A while ago, I ordered three watercolor sets off of Amazon from Kuretake Gansai Tambi. Two of them look pretty similar, the gem palette and the pearl palette. I wanted to do a comparison of the palettes using the same stamp set and see the differences for myself. The stamp set I chose was the Botanic Thanks set from Mama Elephant. I have the Botanic Hello set, so when the thanks set came out, I just knew I had to have it! Watch the video below to see more on how I made these cards.

The pearl palette is very pastel in color, while the gem palette is more jewel toned. Both have gorgeous shimmer and shine to them.

I saw Amy Ramsey (Prairie Paper and Ink) use the gem palette, and I knew that I needed it. I searched the traditional online craft stores I shop from, and saw that it was about $20. I didn’t need it for $20. But, I searched for it on Amazon, and found a set of three palettes for about $20. I went for that, as it was obviously a better deal. The link to that set of three is in the supplies listed below.

Do you have these palettes? Let me know if you do, and what else you have created with them. Supplies are listed below!
