Watercolour Wonder


Do you remember using watercolour paints when you were young? They came in those plastic containers and there were little wells in the lid where you could create "custom" colours...which inevitably ended up being some awful shade of brown or grey.

Well, watercolours have come a long way baby! Just look at this:

Yep! I made that...pretty proud of myself too! I just LOVE our watercolour paper and once you use it, you will too!!! I used a combination of our watercolour crayons (the new ones are still in manufacturing) and ink pressed into the lid of the ink pad. The Beehive/Bee panel is ATC size...did you notice?



This paper is perfect for watercoloring with using our line art stamps and Classic inks or Watercolor Wonder Crayons. The size was chosen to layer perfectly on a card front without having to trim or make adjustments.

■ 20, 3-3/4" x 5" sheets per package
■ 140-lb. cold-pressed paper
■ 100% cotton
■ Resists buckling when wet


Here's a close up of my little buzzer:

Cute, eh? Did you notice those teeny tiny pearls? You can get those through my online store as well as all the other goodies needed to create this card. Don't worry that the watercolour crayons aren't available yet. You can get a lot of the same look using our Aqua Painters and ink.

And here's the inside of my card:

Yes, I know I used ANOTHER sheet of Watercolour Paper and I KNOW it's not cheap, but I just had to duplicate the look that I had on the front of the card. And...you have to admit...it does look pretty fabulous! I used the same combination of Watercolour Crayons and Ink to colour my little honey pot.

What do you think?
