Hey there!  I hope you had an enjoyable weekend full of crafty goodness.

As you know, I love a good challenge.  Lately i've been trying to branch out past the challenges I've come to know and expand my creative wings a bit.  Insert Neat and Tangled's Little Tangles blog here!  The Neat and Tangled Challenge #53 is Watercolour.  Since i've been wanting to play around with water colouring, I decided to give it a try.  

As I have yet to invest in a set of watercolour paints, I decided to try the watercolour technique with my Tim Holtz distress markers.  To get this lovely pink, I blended some of my Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick distress marker with some water on my craft mat before applying it to my card base.  To add a bit of glam, i've taken my Heidi Swapp gold spritzer but instead of using the spray, I unscrewed the spray top and tapped the tube above my project.

When wandering around the Neat and Tangled blog, I came across some great (free!) Neat and Tangled digital stamps so thought this card would be a great place to start with one of their sentiments.  I finished it off by adding a tad of colour in the creases and some Wink of Stella on the ends.

I hope you enjoyed my watercolour (technique) adventure.  

With love,
