Avery Elle and 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.  

Let's get to the hop shall we?  

For my project, I created a watercolor background using Lemon Grass, Celery, Sapphire, Aquamarine and Sea Glass watercolors.  

I stamped adorable little animals from the new Party Pals stamp set, colored them in and then die cut them.  I adhered everything to the card with dimensional adhesive and then heat embossed the sentiment and stamped the stars.  I added glittery gold Nuvo drops to the inside of the stars! 

Supplies: 


Next stop you're off to Emily Midgett's blog!

Here's the full list of hop participants!
