Watercolour crayons

I was practising with the Watercolour Wonder™ crayons and blender pens for a workshop and made this card. I think it would look better if the images were stamped straight on to the large white layer, dispensing with the green layer completely but, as I say, I was practising so stamping on small pieces.

I’ve since discovered that, while using Watercolour Wonder™ crayons and blender pens works fine on Whisper White, it works loads better on Naturals Ivory cardstock, which is more absorbent.

The colours are a bit off in this photo but it’s my favourite combo; Rose Red and Always Artichoke.

Stamps: Doodle That (p55), Basic Phrases (p65)
Cardstock: Rose Red, Always Artichoke, Whisper White
Ink: StazOn®
Accessories: Watercolour Wonder™ crayons, blender pens, ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon - Whisper White

  1. What a gorgeous elegant card - I disagree - I love the touch of green - makes it stand out and not a sea of white - fabulous

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
