Still Love Water Coloring!

Hi guys!

Once again, time got away from me and it's been awhile since I shared a blog post - oops! But I've been really enjoying having more time to create, now that I'm retired. It gives me a more relaxed attitude. I think that's what I love the most. Never finding myself rushed to get something done. It's a wonderful feeling!

Anyway, I've been having fun making lots and lots of cards. (I'll just share a few here today.) After Dawn's online card class, I'm continuing to enjoy water coloring, using it in different ways to create my cards.

First up are some watercolor panels, created by Suzy Plantamura. 

Aren't they just the cutest?!!! I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers on each panel. They come in a pack of 12, uncolored, printed on watercolor paper. I've used Copics on some other panels from Suzy, so that works too, if you're not into water coloring.

Next up is a card using a gorgeous stamp from WPlus9. It's from Dawn's new line called, Beautiful Bouquets and this one is, Ranunculus.

I white embossed the stamp before using my Koi Watercolors. I love how this turned out!

And here's one more. These, Spring Flowers are from Simon Says Stamp and they are beautiful!

After white embossing the flowers, I used Distress Inks and water to add the color.

Okay, that's it. I'm off to get some purging done in my craft room. I have way too much stuff and not enough room! I know many of you can totally relate! Wish me luck!

Thanks for poppin' in today - it is so appreciated! ♥
