This is one of my first pieces using my new watercolor pens.  Finally…I don’t hate watercolor! 🙂


  1. Card Base: Watercolor paper, 3 corners rounded.
  2. Stamp – Pods:  Unity Stamp, Memento – Tuxedo, watercolor pen – red and green, clear embossed.
  3. Stamp – Butterfly:  Unity Stamp, Distress Ink – Ocean.
  4. Background:  Shaded around the pods with watercolor – blue.  Then I used a brush and wiped Delicata – Silver over the left side.  Finally, tiny circles stencil with DI – Ocean.

  1. Beautiful Kim, very organic and soft looking. Thanks for joining us at Wicked Wednesday 🙂

  2. This is absolutely fantastic! I can’t believe this is the first time you’ve used watercolor pens because this looks totally pro to me! I really adore the colors you chose and how you shaded and blended all the tones to perfectly. And those polka-dots make me want to do some sort of happy dance (which I’m pretty sure no one would want to witness)! So I’ll just sit and smile at your entry instead and give you a huge thank you for sharing it with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
