Watercolor Blog Hop – take 2

Just a friendly reminder – I have a GIVEAWAY going on HERE until June 10th, 2015

I was playing with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and decided to try something that Jennifer McGuire suggested! She said you could use a Wink Of Stella pen to blend your colors after you had put ink on your paper from the markers – she talks about it in a video HERE!

I tried this – just putting down the basic colors of the rainbow and after each one blending it with my Wink of Stella pen – When I was through I die cut a banner out of my stripes and decided to add it to this card:


I added the banner to a piece of light blue cardstock with foam squares! Tied some black crochet thread around the banner and knotted it!  Die cut the sentiment from a Big Friend word die from Paper SmoochesCovered my word with Glossy Accents – let it dry overnight and then adhered it to my card using Multi-Medium Matte from Ranger Layered the light blue on a black card base and added a jumbo jewel and some sequins from Doodlebug!

I am linking up to the following places:

    Wow!! I think this is my new favorite card by you!! Those colors ROCK!! I also like how you used the Wink of Stella. I am waiting for a new one I ordered before I try this because I am afraid that I will become addicted with this technique. (I also need those darn markers to come in too. I don’t know what I was thinking ordering from Japan!!) I love the black sentiment die cut you used over the banner too. Beautiful design Taunya!!

    Well, if I was dazzled and delighted by your previous water-coloured card, I’m equally as besotted with this rainbow of glittery goodness! Another uber-pretty card…and again, a showcase of your immense creativity and willingness to give new techniques a ‘go’! Results: only amazing and inspiring! So marvelous….
