TCP Tuesday 167--Julie's Watercoloring Challenge

Well, I sat down to do a little stamping last night. I got the movie, "The Kids are All Right" and loaded it into the laptop to watch while I worked. OH MY WORD! I had to take it out...I didn't realize what kind of "action" would be taking place in that one. The girls were still awake and could come in at any minute, so I had to turn it off before they weren't all right! It wasn't that interesting anyway, so I "got busy" making this card for this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge.

Julie Masse is this week's Hostess with the Mostess and she has issued a technique challenge to use watercolors that had some of the Cat Packers stumped, as most of us are a little addicted to our Copic Markers. But a challenge is a challenge, right?

I used one of my favorite sets from this past Spring's release called Catch My Drift on some watercolor paper and went to town with a bunch of SU! ink and an aquapainter. (Squish the inkpad while still shut. It will put some ink into the lid of the pad which then becomes your "palette" for your brush.)

I sprayed the main panel and the heart with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist so it's super sparkly. Unfortunately, I couldn't capture that in the picture very well, but trust me, it looks as good as Edward Cullen in the sunlight.

We hope you want to play along with us this week for some swanky fame and fortune. Alma has all the details on her blog HERE.

SUSIE Q-TIP: It had been a little while since I had used my Marshmallow Glimmer Mist on anything. So I guess the sprayer had gotten a little clogged. To get it unclogged, you have to text your friend, Lynn. She will then tell you to unscrew it and clean it out with hot water. It worked! (Thanks, Lynn!)
