Best Thoughts

I've been in a bit of a rut with creating lately so I decided this week to do something different, something fun! I decided to give watercoloring a whirl! I have only tried this once before, and that was before I really knew much about it so I'm counting this as the first time. LOL!

I used my Stampin' Up markers for my watercoloring this time around. I scribbled them on an old CD case and then used a paintbrush with water to pick up the color and color my image. 

I must admit that I enjoyed this process/technique way more than I expected to! I love the end result as it's softer and more forgiving than the copics are. Don't get me wrong, I'm not giving up my copics but am adding different styles/techniques. For an early birthday present I am also getting the new Zig Clean Color Markers. I am super excited about those!

So enough's my first watercolor project!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come back again soon!! Also for those of you interested in the Flutter By Blog Hop, I'll post more info on that soon!

Oh so pretty Danni! Watercoloring is so much fun and a lot less easier than coloring. A gorgeous card!
