One of my water color favorites

Hello Friends,

It's been such a long time since I have posted on my new site.  I've been ill and had a take a step back from things for a while.  Bear  with me as I begin to get my toe's wet again!

Today, the Flourishes Senior Design Team is focusing on water coloring. So I thought I would share a favorite of mine.  I made this card last summer, just after the Aqua Markers that Flourishes carries arrived. To say the least, I was smitten. Since watercolor is HOT, HOT, HOT, we thought it would be great to feature a product that we already know and love. And, as a benefit to you, these markers are on sale right now at Flourishes. A word of caution, if you purchase these great markers -- shake them vigorously, very vigorously. This will help your maker to activate the ink flow and prevents the markers from drying out.

Here is the card I made as soon as these babies arrived here at Flourishes.
I used Garden Picks, stamping my image in Memento Summer Sky to make sure the lines were barely visible on water color paper. I used the markers that jumped out at me, and since it was so long ago I can't remember which ones I ended up using.   

I find water coloring a very forgiving art form.  Give it a try! I think you will enjoy it as well.  Thanks for visiting with me today!  Leave some love, it's always so nice to hear your thoughts.

Ciao,
