Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop


**edited : TGIF Honourable Mention **

Paulina of Pretty Pink Posh is hosting a Watercolor Blog Hop from today till Monday, 8 June with lots of prizes and inspirations.


For my card, I painted  lightly with distress inks on the background.  Then
I used PB Delicate Floral, coloured with distress pens and spritz with water before stamping it onto the cardstock.  Then I took an old brush to lightly pound with the inks and water on the image. The background turned out to be too light and I decided to colour it once more to make it more intense.  The sentiment is from SU, stamped and heat embossed.

I am entering this card into Mod Squad Challenge and TGIF challenge.


Over at Kathy, The Daily Marker is hosting her second 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  I like what Kathy said "The idea is to color something everyday even if it’s for five minutes. Just five minutes that’s it. Some days you will have more time and that’s even better.It’s just about adding more time to color and carve out a little time for something that makes you happy".



Thanks for dropping.
