{ Watercolor blog hop }

Hi and welcome to my blog. I am participating in Pretty Pink Posh blog hop. I have been using watercolor on my projects since I started this blog in 2007. I have everything from Loew Cornell 1021095 Simply Art Watercolor Cakes, Chartpak Mondeluz Aquarell Watercolor Pencils, 24-Pack, Caran d'Ache Classic Neocolor II Water-Soluble Pastels, 15 Colors, Sakura XNCW-24N 24-Piece Koi Assorted Water Colors Field Sketch Set with BrushKoh-I-Noor Watercolor Wheel Stack Pack set of 24, and now Faber-Castell Mix and Match Gelatos Gift Set 28 per Package (770161).

Here is a card I created for this hop using Technique Tuesday stamps and dies.

Smile by Daniela Dobson

I used a woodgrain mask for the background to apply modeling paste and then I added watercolor with my watercolor crayon. It’s quick and easy and my favorite technique. See the list below for stamps and dies used on this card. I just love that butterfly die, it’s from the new June Fresh Cut Studio.
