smile...

All these watercolor creations I'm seeing are making me want to watercolor everything.  In trying a few of these techniques, it's also teaching me to let go of my symmetrical, clean control.  ha!

I am using a couple more new sets from this May release over at PTI.  I stamped and heat embossed this background, from Background Basics: Venice, onto watercolor paper.  I don't have watercolors....yet....going to head to Hobby Lobby today....but I do have watercolor crayons.  So I scribbled 6 different colors, covering the card front and then added water in.

The new Wet Paint III from PTI is amazing!  A must have for your stash.  I stamped "smile" in Versamagic Black Onyx and then cut it out.  I wanted the sentiment to stand out but didn't want to hide the background, so I added in some chunks of tissue paper....also going against everything in me.  But I was happy with the end result.

Now I am going to go and watercolor something else.  Be back later.  :)
