Before I go, I’ll show you the card I started out with.  Also fun, but a very different look.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure & put those Watercolor Pencils on your Wish List.  They’ve been so popular that we’re unable to order them right now.  I can contact you when they’re back on the order list.  Just let me know if you’re interested.

Watercolor Cuteness!

Don’t you just love him?!!  He looks just like my puppy, Swiffer!  I colored him using the new Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils.  So fun & simple to use!  You can use Blender Pens or Aquapainters to blend the colors.  There’s really not a wrong way to use them so it’s fun to play around with them to see the different results.
