Sassy Stems Watercolor Crayons

I hope you all had a fun and safe holiday weekend! We had nice cool weather here in Minnesota. A little windy but very nice temperatures. It's the kickoff for summer. Many schools are finishing up this and next week. There's graduations coming up and cards to be made!!! I'll share those ideas with you this week.

Now for this card. I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVE using the Watercolor Crayons. Give me a blender pen and the crayons and I can color with them for hours. And the great thing about them is that they have been used SO much but yet still have a lot of life left to them. I did use marker to outline the stem of the flower. I didn't trust myself with such fine detail and the blender pen!!!

Along with the Sassy Stems set I used the Canvas Background on both Bravo Burgundy layers. I also used Basic Black card stock and watercolor paper. I find that watercolor paper is easier to work with using the crayons or markers. If you make a mistake you just take a clean blender pen and lift it off your paper. You can work an area for a little while without it wearing the paper down. I am more thrilled with the fact that you can lift a mistake off with the blender pen! And yes, I do make mistakes!

The words "Celebrate You" are from Greetings Galore. This was a VERY quick and easy card to make. Gotta love those!!! And this card can be used for many other occasions!

Thank you for stopping by,

Great job Wanda!!!
I just started with the colouring and am loving every minute of it.
It reminds me of when I was a child,I just loved colouring now I can do it again and make someone happy with a card!
