Water Color Blog Hop

It's hard to believe that I haven't posted any cards this year. This doesn't mean I haven't been creating. Since our short visit to the US changed to a temporary move, I didn't pack a bunch of supplies. So the cards I've been creating use very minimal supplies. My choice of coloring medium has been water colors because it doesn't need a lot of other things like regular stamping does.

I have been enjoying the process of learning to watercolor on my cards. When I saw that Pretty Pink Posh is hosting a water color blog hop, I was motivated to share my cards on my blog again.

Here are a couple of cards I made. They both use Penny Black stamps. The card bases are by Hobby Lobby. The first one uses the Divine cling stamp and it's colored with Peerless Watercolors. The paper is Arches cold press.

My second card uses Woodland Friends and colored with Distress inks and Peerless Watercolors.

The heart bling and rhinestone in the first card are by Want2Scrap. The paper is Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock.

  3. Your cards are beautiful. I think the first one is my favorite, as I just bought a poppy stamp, and am looking for ideas of how to color it. I found your blog by clicking on your entry in the Pretty Pink Posh blog hop. Can you tell me where we should be commenting to win some of their generous prizes?
