Pretties Kit Tutorial

I was playing with the new Pretties Kit and thought I'd share some things with you.

These flowers are fabric so you can do a lot with them. You don't have to worry about them tearing or losing their form.
For the flower I am showing here I wet the flower and then took the Watercolor Wonder Crayons and colored directly on the flower itself. I took my aqua painter and scrubbed the color into to the flower.

Then I added some Really Rust and scrubbed it in and bringing it up each petal.
I then took some Chocolate Chip and colored directly in the center. I scrubbed it in and dragged the color out just a little past the center. My flower did dry while I was working on it so I just gave it a spritz from my mister bottle.

I took a smaller flower and added Really Rust and Chocolate Chip and blended them together. I then added some really rust to the tips of the tiny flower and set it aside to dry. Once it was dry I added the rhinestone brad and it is now ready to use on a card, package, scrapbook page, album cover, etc!

I did work on one of the flowers with the Watercolor Wonder Crayons and the blender pen. Due to the glycerin in the blender pen the flower didn't really dry and it looked like it had a big wet grease stain on it. I did wash the flower off in soapy water and it's now stained a light yellow, which I can still use on another project.

I also took another flower and dampened it and tried the chalks on it and got much the same effect as I did with the crayons. I didn't try markers as I thought they would be way too dark. But I am still thinking about experimenting with them at another time.
Thanks for stopping by,

Excellent notes for us Wanda! I'm really glad I read it because I would have probably tried the blender pen thing too.

Let us know if you use the markers or the re-inkers ok?
