Pretty Pink Posh..Watercolour Blog Hop..

Hey,

Happy Friday!

I have been super excited to join in the Pretty Pink Posh watercolour blog hop - despite the foot woes (2 more broken bones found by the MRI)..

The image from the PPP blog, made me giddy with excitement -


I kept my card nice and simple.

I used a piece of Tim Holtz watercolour paper, Distress inks in Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers to create my watercolour background. I use a fave technique, wet my brush in clean water and paint across the paper, then dab ink onto my craft mat and using a very wet brush I apply it to the paper.

The sentiment is by Paper Smooches and you can see some little stars and dots scattered around, those stamps are by Simon Says Stamp.

I then mounted it to a card blank - voila! Finished card.

I love watercolouring, its one of my fave mediums. I find it very therapeutic.

Hope you all have a great weekend, I will be resting my foot, whilst playing at my desk.

  7. I love the sediment you've used, Claire, because your pretty watercolored card just screams HAPPY!! It's a joy!! On a sadder note, I'm terribly sorry to hear the news about the MRI results. Two new breaks or breaks they missed the first time?! Either way, it's a bummer, my friend. I send you big hugs and prayers for smooth healing! Hugs, Darnell
