One of the things that made me shriek with excitement in the new Spring Summer catalogue is the fabulous Watercolour Pencils! I’m sure you all know by now how much I LOVE to watercolour, actually colouring in in general in my jam, but watercolour is my absolute favourite! The first thing that went into my shopping basket when I put my order in last month was for these great pencils, and I was not disappointed, they are awesome!
The pencils come in a pack of 13 great Stampin’ Up! colours, allowing for full coordination with all the other great products; inks, card stock and embellishments already available. I have everything crossed for some more colours to be added in June for the next Annual catalogue too! They are super easy to colour with, the pretty lady image on this card (from Beautiful You) is coloured with the watercolour pencils, Stampin’ Up! have made a great video to show us how they work…
Once I had coloured the image with my new set of Watercolour Pencils, I needed to find a suitably pretty background, and so grabbed for the Irresistibly Floral Speciality Designer Series Paper and a sponge roller. This paper comes as white sheets, but it has patterns already heat embossed onto it, all you have to do is add an ink colour of your choice and reveal the pattern. This paper works with a heap of colouring techniques, and I am sure I could have Watercoloured it, but the Sponge Rollers had just arrived in my crafty office, and I had to have a go. They are super easy actually, I think they will turn up in a video sooner rather than later!
I finished this card with some matts of Basic Grey and a bow in Bermuda Bay Thick Bakers Twine.
