Watercolor Blog Hop Tomorrow!

June 4, 2015





Hello!  We wanted to let you know about a fun blog hop that our friend Paulina is hosting tomorrow over on her blog, Pretty Pink Posh.   The blog hop officially opens (June 5th at 6am PST) and ends June 8th at 11:55pm PST.  We are a sponsor of one of the prizes and there are many other amazing sponsors too so be sure to stop over there tomorrow to check it out.

I created this fun project using our brand new Simply Said Amazing stamp and die set.  I created the fun watercolor background using some Distress Inks that I applied to an acrylic block, sprayed water on top and then "smooshed" it onto a piece of watercolor paper.  A few clear sequins finished it off!



Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. Have a great day!
