I was playing with the watercolor crayons last night. I need to do that more. I still haven't totally mastered them. They have such potential tho. I love it when I make something I like. This stamp from the SAB Happy Harmony just needs to be watercolored. I love how soft the flowers look. You can't really tell here, but I used glitter on them. I know, glitter again! The glitter intensified the color of the flowers and added a little more fantasy feel to them. I did actually use watercolor paper for this. I colored onto the stamp with the crayons and then stamped onto watercolor paper I had already spritzed with water. I think this is my favorite way to use these. The colors used were always artichoke and almost amethyst with a touch of ballet blue. I love how you can blend colors and shade with the crayons! It makes me feel like an artist! The paper is Mellow Moss and Barely Banana. I added a couple mini brads to anchor the whole thing. I stamped the French Flair background with a Versamark in the background. This background stamp is so versatile! You can use all of it or just a little bit. It is my new favorite!

I have my brayer class tonight may be seeing more brayer cards. It is amazing at all you can do with that tool! Have a happy day!

I love this card. I just borrowed this set yesterday but I haven't had a chance to play yet. And I love everything I see with the BG stamp. It is so pretty.

Too cute Becky. I love the crayons and haven't even bought them yet. I know that I really need to with their endless possibilities. Had a great Stampin and Scrappin at my house last night, still moving forward. Now to just get back to parties.
