January Cross Canada Blog Hop - Creating with Watercolors

Welcome to our January Blog Hop featuring Watercolor Creations.  To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, and I'm the first stop when hopping from the East Coast to the West Coast. If you came from Candra's blog then you are in the right place! 

This first image is painted first and then stamped, I did a gradual fade as I painted, letting my brush get dry.
This second image is colored with watercolor pencils, and then I used a damp paint brush to lightly go over the colored image.
For this final image, I stamped first and then painted the image, letting my brush go dry as I moved into the center of the flowers.

For my card, I used the the yellow flower from the first image set.  I used the gold foil tape and the pattern paper is from La Rose en Vie.  The stamp set used is January's SOTM, Beloved Bouquet, and I love this stamp.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Rosalynd.
