“Watercolor” theme VSC Challenge #32

Good morning! It’s March so that means we have an awesome challenge for you over at our V’s Sweet Challenge blog. I have always loved watercoloring since I was a little girl so I was super excited when watercolor cakes were making a comeback to the crafting world. The first thing I did was run over to my Michael’s and purchased their $5 watercolor cakes set. I was having a blast with them when I discovered other brands and types of watercoloring. Then my good friend Nicole got me a set of watercoloring pencils which I love. After watching a few video’s on youtube I discovered peerless watercolors and I knew I had to have it. I was able to find the mini set on Ellen Hutson (Love that store!) and as soon as they arrived I put them in a 4×6 photo album(thanks to Jennifer McGuire for the awesome storage idea) and began to use them. Wow! the colors were amazing and they blended so well and now, peerless are my fave watercolor set.

Ok guys enough of my rambling. Here is the card I created for our March challenge. For this card I used my new “Coffee Break” stamp set and my peerless watercolors. I was inspired by Chari Moss and her Baked with love card she made for simon says stamp. The beauty of watercoloring is that you really can’t mess up. Like for instance the red color blended in with the grey part and that’s not what I wanted to do but I still liked how it turned out.
