From the Garden -- Water Color Pencils



I was inspired lately to bring out my water color pencils -- and now I remember just why I love them so much! They are so east to work with -- forgiving, really.

I think this new flower from the Stampin' up! Catalog is just beautiful. It really works well with the technique I posted yesterday -- I have some cards made with it that I will post next week.

This 4" x 8" card opens at the scallop, as you can see from the picture on the right, and the card itself is pieced all the way around it. I really like this card, and the color combination of Artichoke, Rose Red, and River Rock.

Hmmmm I think I have gone a little distress-tool mad...you will have to tolerate me until I get it out of my system!!!

Don't forget to enter yesterday's give away -- you still have until the stroke of midnight tomorrow night to enter.

What beautiful work you do with the watercolor pencils Pat! These new Stampin Up flowers remind me of the PSX botanicals; really gorgeous images.
