TPE Watercolor

Hi Friends!
Happy Monday!

I'm back with today's challenge #247 over at The Pink Elephant and this week it's time for a TECHNIQUE CHALLENGE. All you have to do is create a card or project using the WATERCOLOR TECHNIQUE and submit it to the link on the TPE BLOG.

I pulled out my old Stampin' Up watercolor crayons and aqua pen for this one. It's actually been years since I've used them, but believe it or not, before I owned Copics I made all my cards using either SU watercolor crayons or SU markers. Still a wonderful technique and lovely results, but a little more time consuming.

The stamp and sentiment I've used are from PTI Friendship Jar fillers and the paper is Basic Grey Origins. I also decided to use a few sequins in the center of each flower to give this card some fun texture!

Thank you so much for popping by! Be sure to check out the inspiration from all of Ella's Girls over at TPE! Hope you'll join us!

Kadie, this card turned out SO pretty!!!

I love the coloring technique {I need to quit moving that water pen and start using it} and those flower centers look really good. Oh and the petite patterned paper....oh me likey!

So pretty, love watercoloring, especially for nature images. Your choice in DP is perfect for this and the whole card is lovely!
