Wonderful Watercolour


I've joined the Online Card Class - Watercolour For Cardmakers.  The techniques are good for watercolour paints or Distress Inks, so you can guess which I went for.  I prefer them to paints, they're more fun to use and more versatile.

Anyway, I tried Jen Rzasa's technique using stencils.  Yep, happy.  Like it.

I'm entering this into Less Is More - use 3 colours or 3 shades of one colour.  I've used Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey.

I'm also entering it into Keep It Simple where the theme is Watercolour,


And Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes.


The stamps are from the new release by STAMPlorations.  We're having a blog hop tomorrow, so come back for your chance to win some of the new goodies.
