Just Because

Today the Flourishes Senior Team is going to do something a little different! We're going to spend this Friday on a Technique Focus we think you'll enjoy. It's one that's very "hot" in the cardmaking industry right now, watercolor. You'll see many examples of some great watercoloring techniques along the way with the Design Team.


I used ProMarkers in Celery,  Cherry Blossom and Straw Yellow.  They were very easy to use.  I just scribbled a little of each color on a clean stamp block and picked up some color with an aqua painter, then colored in the open spaces.  


OTHER SUPPLIES USED:
Cardstock: Flourishes Classic White
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Pro Markers:  Celery Cherry Blossom and Straw Yellow

 We're also going to focus on a product we have in store that's great for watercoloring, AND it's in our OVERSTOCK Sale too! It's our Letraset AquaMarkers, which are perfect for watercoloring, and on sale - who can beat that!

Delicate, dainty, feminine and charming - all words to describe the pastel colors you watercolored with here. And I do love the combination of a more harsh texture like burlap, but not overly added - perfect!!!
