Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge--Anything Goes


Paper Smooches latest Sparks Challenge is Anything Goes.


I had some leftover building pieces from a previous post, and used them
together with one of my favorite and well used sentiments. Here's my card.


The buildings were painted with Peerless Watercolors--my new favorite watercolor medium.
I love the intensity of the colors and the fact that you only need a filled water brush
and you're good to go.

Over the weekend, I made a swatch palette so it's easier to see and use the colors.
There are several tutorials on You Tube but I chose Julie Ebersole's because I could see myself
using the palette, and I had all the supplies for it: watercolor paper, acetate, and washi tape.



Now I have all 40 colors ready to use, and it's portable, too.
And I'm stuck in Watercolorland.

Thanks for stopping by!
