Gentle blooms

This is another of the cards we made at the workshop on Monday. This time we used the blender pens with Watercolour Wonder™ crayons – which, I have to say, is my favourite way of colouring.

We stamped the image in Basic Gray then coloured in. Some of the ladies stamped the image again and decoupaged on top – very impressive!

The base card is Confetti White which is lovely because it has bits in it! And great for watercolouring or colouring with anything “wet” as it’s absorbent.

Stamps: Soft Summer
Cardstock: Confetti White, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink textured
Paper: Sweet Always
Ink: Basic Gray, Regal Rose
Accessories: Striped Grosgrain Ribbon - Pretty in Pink, Scallop Edge Punch, Watercolour Wonder™ crayons – Rich Regals, blender pens
