Watercolouring Wonders

Have you joined the watercolour trend yet?  I love watercolouring and have a number of different mediums... Derwent Inktense pencils, Kohi-i-noor paints, tubes of watercolour paints, Twinkling H2O's, Gelatos, Pearlescent paints, Distress Markers, Tombow markers.... and have order some of the Zig Clean Colour pens.... Yes I think you could say I love watercolouring.... So does Paulina from Pretty Pink Posh and she's having a Blog Hop

I have a few birthdays this month that I need to make a card for, and with heading on holiday on the 20th, some have to be made early.  Just the excuse I needed to pull out the watercolours and play along


This one was inspired by a card I saw from Carrisa ( a DT on Pretty Pink Posh)
I used a Derwent Inktense pencil to scribble onto my watercolour paper then used a wet paint brush to blend it out.  I used a couple of colours of pink and then used the end of the pencil to flick some splatters.  I die cut the rose (Couture Creations) from gold card, the Walter & Winnie Happy from black card and white embossed the sentiment (note to self: make sure it's straight!) I added some glossy accents to the die cut.  I used some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.  Actually, I don't have any black sequins so took some clear ones and used a Copic marker to colour.  Worked really well!  

Thanks Paulina for such a fun hop.  And to all those talented artists out there who have done videos and tutorials that I have avidly viewed.  You are all so awesome!
