This weeks Make it Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink is something I so want to be better at - watercoloring. I've collecting all sorts of "essentials" for this style - clean color markers, gansai tambi, water brushes, and I always seem to have more success with a plain old paintbrush, a pot of water, and a few ink pads.
I was thrown a bit by the "watercolor set" in the challenge brief so I made a set of different but similar birthday cards. They're much more girly that my usual cards - must be Melissa's influence.
I can't tie ribbon bows - I try and try but the loops and ends never go the way I want them!
I love the new Shaped sayings series - can't wait to see whats coming next. I cut this out of smoky shadow card and used spray adhesive to mount it (first time using this technique, and the sentiment fell straight off the card 5 minutes later so I'm not sure I'll be using it again)
I tried a few different color combinations
