Watercolor Blog Hop



Pretty Pink Posh has a Watercolor Blog Hop going on today and I'm super excited to have created a piece in order to take part. I'm a novice when it comes to watercolor, so I just created a simple background.


I colored my kitty to look like the stray cat that lives in our bushes. She's actually very sweet, but she's scared of humans. I've been working on her for over a year now and she's to the point where she lets me pet her and always comes to see me when I leave the house. I'm hoping to be able to have her spayed very soon and maybe find her a very patient foster family until she can be adopted.

Anyway, got off on a tangent there... The images are from Paper Smooches and the sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I heat embossed the sentiment and added Clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to the fish bowl.

I'm also going to enter this card into Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge. It's Anything Goes this week!



Supplies:
Stamps: Nine Lives (Paper Smooches)
Dies: Stitched Rectangles (Simon Says Stamp)
Paper: Whisper White, Strathmore Watercolor
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark, Assorted Copics, Distress Inks for watercoloring - Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Peacock Feathers
Other: Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh), Clear Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents
