Watercolor Blog Hop

watercolor.bloghop

I wanted to make a card for the Watercolor Blog Hop hosted by Pretty Pink Posh.  I used the Moroccan Tiles stencil from My Favorite Things for the background.  I drew in the shapes lightly with a pencil on Distress Watercolor paper and then colored them using Distress Inks and my Zig watercolor brush.

I cut some tags out of the Distress Watercolor paper and vellum, using Lil Inker Designs: Stitched Tags.  Then I stamped with black Versamark ink the elephant and happy birthday sentiment from WPlus9's Unforgettable.  Using the same distress inks I colored the middle tag.  To finish off I tied the tags together with twine and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins.


I'm also participating in the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge #2.
