Watercolor Bookmark

Morning, all! Kristina here. :)

Well, my voice is still gone (the cough/cold is a killer) so in today's video I included text captions instead. Hopefully, you will be able to see enough of what I'm doing.

Anyhow, today I decided to create a bookmark using this adorable stamp from Belles 'n Whistles. The outlined image was perfect for watercoloring to I broke out the watercolor paper and pencils and started creating.

  9. That is so beautiful. I've been playing with watercolour paper for the first time and it's great how much easier it is to use with water! It sounds obvious but it's so much better than card stock. Maddy x
