I've been playing with watercolors lately. I have some new watercolor crayons that I broke out for today's card. I have a short tutorial on how I used them.
First, a view of the finished card:
I used Pickled Potpourri's Dahlia digital stamp for this card. The 'thank you' sentiment is part of the Rose Sentiments set.

I hope you visit this blog often to see what other great projects you'll find here.
