Watercolor Blog Hop



Paper Smooches is excited to be a sponsor for The Pretty Pink Posh watercolor challenge.  Paulina has done a fabulous job of bringing many amazing sponsors together.  I hope you play along.

The blog hop officially opens tomorrow (June 5th at 6am PST)
 and ends June 8th at 11:55pm PST.


...and here is my card for the watercolor challenge

I haven't ventured into watercolors, just yet...but I have some now.  I can't wait to crack open that box!  In the meantime, I created a card with a watercolor effect. I used Positive Strokes Two stamp set along with our Headliners stamp set.  I chose fun paint/ink colors and made it super simple.
