For the Happy Birthday card I also used those circles form the Holiday Artsy set and some sequins.
I made a collage to not bore you with too many images.
You see my supplies: water color paper, Versamark, clear embossing powder, and my ancient watercolors that I used when I was in school...nothing fancy.
After clear embossing the sentiment, I took a brush and applied some water color around the letters and misted them with water, using a mini mister. See fist picture in the second row. Added some more colors and misted again, as needed. Once I was done and the paper dried, I cleaned off the embossed sentiment - middle image last row.

The Thank You card I made slightly differently. I clear embossed just like before, but I wet the paper before applying my watercolors.
