Ellen Hutson Watercolor Blog Hop!

March 23, 2018



Hello!  We are so excited to be hopping along with our friends at Ellen Hutson today.  We are featuring projects using our NEW Liquid Watercolors and are SO excited to show them off in action.  Avery Elle's liquid watercolors come in 10 gorgeous shades that can be used on their own or easily mixed together to create custom colors.  For an intense shade use the watercolors straight out of the bottle.  If you want lighter shades, just add various amounts of water to get the color you desire.  The possibilities are endless.  Be sure to check out all of the details of the hop as well as how to be entered to win one of TWO FULL SETS of our Avery Elle Liquid Watercolors over on the Ellen Hutson Classroom Blog.  

Let's get to the hop shall we?  

I painted our watercolors onto a watercolor paper die cut panel and set it aside to dry.  In the meantime, I stamped images from our Toucan Party clear stamps and die cut them with the coordinating die set.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto a strip of black card stock and adhered everything together.  A few Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops finished the card off.  



Supplies:

Thanks for stopping by for a peek.  You are off to Julie Ebersole next.

A full list of the hop participants can be found below.

Have a great day!

I am currently playing at watercoloring. Playing is a word I use when I think I have the hang of something but probably not. Also so I won't stress about it.I practice in coloring books and my art journal. I love the bright and vibrant colors you can achieve with them.!

I LOVE this technique of leaving the focal images colorless, really shows off the watercolor! Gorgeous card :)

3kidmama said...

I love to watercolor on my card but really struggle getting soft colors with what I have - they always look too washed out for some reason. Everyone I'm seeing using these Avery Elle colors seems to be getting lovely soft yet still vibrant color using this product. I think I need to get some for myself to try them out! So helpful to see them put to use on this blog hop today!

I really have to admit how surprised I've been at seeing the lovely soft colors the designers can get with these liquid watercolors. It's really a lovely look and one that for some reason I struggle to get with my everyday watercolor palette. I'm looking forward to trying these - thanks for putting together such a lovely color selection for the first release!
