Cut it Up – Watercolor

CIU challenge blogWelcome back!  Our challenge to you this time at Cut it Up is to use watercolors on your project.  That made me happy because I absolutely love the beautiful stamps at Unity Stamp Company and can’t stop myself from buying them when they have a sale – especially the Itty Bitties – and they always have a sale going on!  I have so many of their stamps and have been trying out ways to get them colored nicely but with minimal luck so far.  Even though I can stay in the lines, regular colored pencils don’t look that great.  I don’t have any of the expensive alcohol markers (and don’t intend to invest in them) but I did go out and buy some Crayola watercolor paints and a water brush.  Over at Unity, they have these fantastic one-minute quick tips that show different ways to work with the stamps, so I put on YouTube and tried some of them out.  The stamp set I used was Butterflies and Sunbeams, which I won in one of their blog hops!  🙂

The mats are Lil’ Inkers Stitched Mat Rectangle Dies.    The paper is retired CTMH.

  3. I think they turned out awesome….and a complete 180 or is it 360 from the latest cards. I love all your cards and projects though. Watercolor, really? I will try. I did a little of the bath tub and wine card and the crazy bird for the backgrounds. Gosh, I’ll try a third card…haha
