Sweet Spring PTI Blog Hop



Hello! Popping in super quick to get this added to the Sweet Spring PTI blog hop going on today. I really wanted to join in and wanted to play around with more watercolors as the soft colors remind me of spring along with flowers and butterflies. I started by clear embossing my images using Mini Blooms and Beautiful Butterflies. I used a combination of Distress inks spritzed with water on my craft mat and my Tombow markers applied directly to my watercolor paper and spritzed with water. I hadn't ever done that with the Tombow markers and was very pleasantly surprised to see how beautifully reactive they were after being sprayed. After I heat set it to speed up drying time, I went back in with a light gray marker to add some shadow to my images. I finished it off with some twine and sequins. Thanks so much for stopping by and I sure do appreciate your comments :)
