Watercolour blog hop



Hello.
As soon as i saw the Facebook event for a watercolour themed blog hop hosted by pretty pink posh i knew i wanted to join in, i mean who doesn't love water colours?


With all the various types of water colours i have i went with some distress inks.
I'm not an overly pink person but i LOVE picked raspberry so that had to be used along with squeezed lemonade and salty ocean.
I added the ink to an acrylic block and lifted with a water brush once it was all dried i added some splashes of each colour.



I used Winnie and Walters Addies garden stamps, its full of the most beautiful flower images.
The images are heat embossed in platinum on vellum and fussy cut.
I coloured the back of the vellum with copics which gives a muted almost watercolour feel.
I finished with the sentiment and trimmed down die cut "you" in glitter card and finally some clear Pretty pink posh sequins.
