Pretty Pink Posh: Watercolor Blog Hop



This weekend, Paulina of Pretty Pink Posh, is hosting a Watercolor Blog Hop! Hurry on over if you want to see a gallery full of gorgeous inspiration - the entries are totally fabulous! So much fun and of course I couldn't resist.

Tim Holtz Distress Inks and watercolour paper; Wplus9 Fresh Cut Florals; Winnie & Walter The Big The Bold and The Happy stamps; Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangle die; Pretty Pink Posh sequins 
For this card I decided to play with some Distress Inks to create a pretty watercoloured background. I like how it turned out and how easy it was to do. I'm loving the Ranger watercolour paper - it's so white with just the perfect texture to it. And I love how "sturdy" it is and how it holds up to lots of water so well. I had actually painted the other side of this panel earlier in the week, didn't like the results, decided to experiment for today's challenge using the other side, and it ended up being a keeper :)
