My lovely and supportive husband gave me some watercolour pencils for Christmas this year (Stampin’ Up! ones of course!), and I just love them, even though I haven’t had enough time to really get to know how to use them properly yet. But you can be sure that you will be seeing quite a lot of them in the near future, as I do more experimenting. Anyway, this card was a nice, simple one for my first play with the pencils. I have stamped the images onto some scrap pieces of watercolour paper with black Stazon, then coloured inside each image using the pencils. I have then blended the colours together using the Aqua brush, which really brought out the gorgeous, vibrant colours. I hope you like it!
Make sure you check out my Upcoming events page for classes for February, and hope you get some stamping time this weekend.
