TPE #247 {Watercoloring}

This week over at The Pink Elephant, we are giving you a technique challenge:

Ella and the girls want to see all your creativity using "WATERCOLORING!"

I will admit, I *scoured* my whole newly-renovated/organized craft space for one itty bitty piece of water color paper - NO LUCK! ACK! So, I went in search of some other techniques using regular paper and water coloring and found one on You Tube. It uses Naturals White paper and "misting" water onto your marker-colored stamp image before you stamp on the paper. So that's what I did and then blended it with a blending pen to give it more of a watercolored look. I added my sentiment from Papertrey Ink in VersaMark ink and clear embossed it....I really like how it turned out after all the fretting lol....

Be sure to hop on over to The Pink Elephant's challenge blog HERE to see what the rest of the girls came up with for you...then, give it a whirl and add your card using the linky provided! Cheers!
