Watercolor crayons


Why I love watercolor crayons.... and Aqua Painters. Combined together with watercolor paper there is forgiveness beyond belief. You really can take off color if you've put too much on. I even accidentally got eggplant (the color) on one of the corners and you can barely tell which corner it was. Yeah!

Recipe: (100% Stampin' Up)
Stamps- Morning Soft, Sanded Background
CS- Watercolor paper, eggplant, lavender, olive and black
Ink: Staz On Black, Olive and Eggplant markers
Misc: Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Pretties Kit, grosgrain ribbon
Technique: Watercolor

Happy stamping!
