Welcome to the Fun n’ Crafty Blog Hop for February. This month's theme is watercolor. For my card, I kept the design and embellishments simple to focus on the watercolor pencils. I love love love this product and am so excited that they are back in stock after a temporary outage. The pencils are so versatile. You can simply color an image or apply a bit of water and create an amazing watercolor effect. For my card, I colored in some jars using two different colored pencils to create a fun paint jar look. The color combos are: Calypso Coral and Read Red, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry, and Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie. I then die cut the jar and trimmed a bit off the edges. I stamped the jars onto a piece of Whisper White and then glued the die cut jars onto the stamped images. I used a similar effect on this Jar of Love card. I also added a stamped and die cut lid for each of my jars. For my sentiment I stamped is with a two tone effect. I kept the background simple with a layer of silver foil paper on top of a Basic Gray card base. It's hard to tell in the first photo, but I did add a bit of sparkle with some clear Wink of Stella in jar.
