Watercolor Blog Hop + VIDEO


What a busy Friday in blog land today! There's a lot going on between the Coffee Lover's Bloghop as well as the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor hop! Not to mention all of the countless end of the school year slash start of summer events going on! Phew... Let's get into it...


I was able to use a BRAND NEW gorgeous floral stamp set from Unity Stamp Co called "Cluster of Buds". I colored the images with Distress Inks and my watercolor brush. It turned out better than the image in my head, which is always a huge bonus!


I put together a QUICK TIP video showing the process of this card. It's only a minute long so I hope you take 60 seconds and give it a watch, a thumbs up, and of course you can always subscribe to my YouTube channel! ;)




Thank you Paulina of Pretty Pink Posh for putting this fun hop together. Make sure you visit her original post to link up your own creation and get yourself some GREAT coupon codes from the sponsors!
