Charming Gardeners


 Hanging out in my craft room this weekend, I got a chance to do another SCS Sketch Challenge.  This is my take on SC192.  Again I was using that lovely watercolor with markers technique that I used several days ago.  I’m sure I’ll watercolor a little bit more now that I’ve seen how the markers react. 


I love the sentiment!  This is a set that I’ve had from Impression Obsession that has never seen ink – I’m glad I changed that, this set is awesome. 

Stamps:  Impression-Obsession – Charming Gardener
Paper:  DP – Paper Studio, Canson Watercolor Paper 140lb, Bazzill
Ink:  Versamark, Black Brilliance
Accessories:  Zig Watercolor Markers, Ribbon, Prima Flower, Kajinker Jems, Black EP

    Adorable card, and beautiful watercoloring. I wonder if the Zig markers are the only ones that you can watercolor with. I am wishing I knew how, if you have time, would you mind explaining it on your blog? Thanks for the inspiration, still loving your blog.

    I wish it was raining here today it hardly ever rains in San Diego until January and probably then what most would call showers we call rain :)ReplyCancel
