Swan Lake Watercolor

Hello Stampers! Hopefully you’ve all had a chance to view the NEW Occasions Catalog and see what great items you can get for FREE from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. We had a little hiccup on Wednesday when the whole computer system at Stampin’ Up! went down. Fortunately it was up and running shortly. If you haven’t taken a look yet…just go to my side bar and click on the cover page images of each one.

Now, for today…I continue to experiment with my new Watercolor Pencils.

Do you like the beautiful sprig of flowers on the envelope? That stamp is also in this set “Swan Lake”. That would look so lovely in watercolor.

I have to tell you about a funny thing that I did with this card. You may notice that the sentiment  on the front is on a raised piece of watercolor paper. Well, I switched the two sentiments and had originally had “may happiness follow.” on the front! The best thing about making your own cards…you can always make a correction. I showed my husband and he didn’t have a clue that I had made a mistake. He thought those extra pieces were part of the design. Most likely the recipient of this card won’t notice either! 🙂

Just another view with our lemons in the background. The tree is so abundant with lemons we had to tie the tree because the lemons were making it lean.

Here’s a close up of the front detail.

My upline, Peggy Noe, gave me a great suggestion for the watercolor…make the outlines in heat embossed black to prevent any bleeding of the black.

I actually used the white watercolor pencil on the mother swan and I like the way it turned out.

I’m having so much fun with these watercolor pencils! I can’t wait for you to try them out yourself.
