This month we are playing with watercoloring and 
you won't want to miss the amazing and fun cards we've got for you today. 
 We really love feedback,  
so please leave a comment on each of the blogs in today's hop.  
Each comment on the 12 hops throughout the year will be 
entered into a drawing for a $25 or Stampin' Up gift certificate 
(Winner's Choice). 

Now on with the projects.

I started by stamping the swirls from a set by The Stamps of Life.
I used my MISTI and stamped them on Ranger pre-cut watercolor paper.
I used Versa Mark and Brutus Monroe Embossing Powders in Alabaster, Penny and Sterling.  The sentiments are a CAS-ual Fridays set.

Each one is made using a different watercolor product and technique.
This one is made using Ranger Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron using the ink smooshing technique.  There's a touch of pink in it from my fingers being colored from the other cards. 

I used my Gansai Tambi Watercolors for this one.
I used a wet on wet technique and then spritzed with water.

For this last one, I used Brusho Crystal Colours.

I'd love to know which one is your favorite. 
Leave me a comment and let me know.

Happy Crafting
