Avery Elle & Ellen Hutson watercolor Blog Hop

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

I love coloring with watercolors and I was really curious about these new liquid watercolors. After I've tried them, I love them! The colors are beautiful and the liquid idea is great because you can add just the drops you need and keep the bottles pretty and clean.

For my project I used the Mermaids stamps (they are soooo cute!!) combined with Coral Reef dies and I colored everything with the liquid watercolors. For the mermaids I also used a bunch of colored pencils to add some details.


I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with Pure White embossing powder on vellum so the background can be seen underneath. Finally, I added some jewels and sequins to the background and a bit of sparkle to the mermaid with my Wink of Stella pen.


I hope you like my project! Now, you are off to the amazingly talented Melania Deasy next.

And, here's a full list of the hop participants so you don't miss anything! ;)
