4 CC #335 {Watercolor}

Happy "4 Crafty Chicks" Thursday! 

I am the challenge hostess over at 4 Crafty Chicks this week and I haven't done any watercoloring in YEARS .... so that is the challenge:

4 CC #335 {WATERCOLOR}


I decided to do something very CAS this go round as I haven't mucked with my watercolor pen for years....I absolutely LOVE the projects I see that are done in watercolor and I would love to dabble more in it so I am so excited to see the gallery fill up with ideas and inspiration!

I used my watercolor paper and water pen and used some re-inkers of Eggplant and Melon Mambo. Then, once it was dry, I stamped the sentiment from Reverse Confetti and added the 3 small pearls and left it CAS. I see now that I should have maybe moved my sentiment "up" a bit so that the "wishing you well" part was more visible. Here's a close up:


I am going to make sure I do more watercoloring in the future as I do find it very relaxing and fun....

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

A Bit More Time to Craft - Anything Goes
Country View Challenges - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore Encore - Anything Goes

I really hope you come play along with us Chicks! Cheers!
