Avery Elle & Ellen Hutson watercolor Blog Hop


We are so excited to be hopping along with our friends at Ellen Hutson today.  We are featuring projects using our NEW Liquid Watercolors and are SO excited to show them off in action.  Avery Elle's liquid watercolors come in 10 gorgeous shades that can be used on their own or easily mixed together to create custom colors.  For an intense shade use the watercolors straight out of the bottle.  If you want lighter shades, just add various amounts of water to get the color you desire.  The possibilities are endless.  Be sure to check out all of the details of the hop as well as how to be entered to win one of TWO FULL SETS of our Avery Elle Liquid Watercolors over on the Ellen Hutson Classroom Blog

I love coloring with watercolors and I was really curious about these new liquid watercolors. After I've tried them, I love them! The colors are beautiful and the liquid idea is great because you can add just the drops you need and keep the bottles pretty and clean.

For my project I used the Mermaids stamps (they are soooo cute!!) combined with Coral Reef dies and I colored everything with the liquid watercolors. For the mermaids I also used a bunch of colored pencils to add some details.

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with Pure White embossing powder on vellum so the background can be seen underneath. Finally, I added some jewels and sequins to the background and a bit of sparkle to the mermaid with my Wink of Stella pen.

I hope you like my project! Now, you are off to the amazingly talented Melania Deasy next.

And, here's a full list of the hop participants so you don't miss anything! ;)

Toadally awesome - Lawn Fawn March inspiration week

Hi there!!

Today we continue to celebrate the March inspiration week at Lawn Fawn featuring the new stamps and dies Toadally awesome.

I know some of you have been requesting a pond set for... years?? And I was waiting for it too so I'm very excited about this new addition. I enjoy creating scenes on my cards so I had a lot of fun making this one. I wanted to create a night pond scene.

I used Copic markers to color the little frogs and other elements on the card and for the background I used my Tombow markers with some water. I love Neenah paper for coloring with Copics but you can't use Tombow markers with it, my favorite is Bristol paper. It has some kind of satin surface that lets you play with ink and water a bit and the results are really cool.

I hope you like my project for today! Don't miss more inspiration, a demo video and a giveaway at the Lawn Fawn blog!

Thank you so much for stopping by, hugs!!
