watercolor blog hop!

Hi there!


I'm thrilled to be on both the Ellen Hutson and Avery Elle teams, and today they are joining together to show off Avery Elle's new line of watercolors.

watercolor blog hop!

I had fun with the Cherry color, and used it to create a quick background for the cute critters (from Party Pals.)

watercolor blog hop!

I did a quick wash, waited for it to dry, and then went back in again on the right side to add a bit more depth and color. I flicked on some of the Cherry watercolor to make pink flecks, and did the same with some white ink.

The animals and balloons were all colored using copic markers.

I hope you like it! Hop along with us - here is a list of today's participants:

  38. Super cute! I love how bright and bold your background is. I'm curious why you didn't use the liquid watercolors for the coloring of the images. Are they difficult to use for detail work?

  40. I love your card! I'm really surprised at how gorgeously vibrant the colors are on your card. It's hard to believe that you are using the same Avery Elle watercolors that other blog artists used today who went with very soft washed background in their designs. It's amazing the range of colors that you can get with these products. I can't wait to try them for myself. Beautiful!
