Stampendous Pink Your Life Finale Blog Hop

Welcome back to the hop with Pink Your Life stamps from Stampendous! Hope you're in for some Pink Your Life cuteness because I did my best to bring it out in my project today.

My card today is using the Whisper Garden Perfectly Clear Set by Stampendous and two types of watercolors plus white acrylic paint for splatters.

I stamped in waterproof ink and began coloring with Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils because I did have pencil legs to color, right?

I went back with my Winsor and Newton Watercolor Markers. I really do love the intense color from these markers, but to have them play nice with the pencils I scribbled them off on a Perfectly Clear Acrylic Stamp Handle and used an aqua pen.

The process was repeated with a leaf background and then on both of the watercolor panels I splattered white paint that was watered down with a squirt of water, I was careful not to splatter onto the image, but it was pretty easy to quickly wipe up when I did.

I hope you enjoyed my project today and now it's time to hop to the next stop. Remember commenting on each of the blogs during the hop enters you into the prize drawing over on the Stampendous blog. Find all the details there.
