I've been playing around with watercolour pencils for the AAA Card Challenge - make a card using watercolour techniques. Since I've used the lovely Summery colours over at Curtain Call I'm going to link up my card over there too - it is a birthday card, despite not actually saying 'happy birthday' - you can still send love and hugs on someone's special day can't you?
I used Mama Elephant's Sweet Havana set for this one. I die cut the flowers from watercolour paper and used a mixture of inks and watercolour pencils to stamp and colour them. I edged the frame with a pencil, then softened it with some water. There's a great tutorial by Nichol Magourik on how to achieve the watercolour effect using distress inks on the Mama Elephant blog - you can find it here if you want some good tips!
