Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop

Thursday, June 4, 2015

Today I'm joining with lots of other crafters in the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog hop. All we had to do was create a card using the watercolor technique and I choose to simply create an abstract background using three different distress ink colors. I own a wide variety of watercoloring tools but I always seem to go back to distress inks time and time again. I feel like the colors are so vibrant and they mix together so well.

I'm also using a few Pretty Pink Posh products to create this card, like the new 6mm iridescent sequins, Sunshine Glow. I'm also using the stitched cloud die from the set, Stitched borders 2--also by PPP.

Blog Hop Details: This hop is officially open to the public tomorrow (June 5th at 6:00am PST) and ends June 8th at 11:55pm PST. So you'll be able to create your watercolor creations and link them up on the PPP blog. You can click here to head over to the Pretty Pink Posh blog hop!

Additional info: If we can get 100 entries, Paulina will donate a $20 gift certificate to Ellen Hutson orSimon Says Stamp. 200 entries? She'll donate another! For every 100 entries (up to 500) there will be an extra $20 gift certificate! 

I hope you really enjoyed this card and thank you so much for stopping by!
