It's Release Day!!

We made it!! Can't believe that 4 years ago, we had the courage to take a risk and release a few images.. not knowing what to expect! So honored to still be around after a few years and a few loyal retailers.  Many thanks goes out to them and our loyal customers!  We really appreciate everyone who has supported us and followed us on this crazy crafty journey!

Ok stop getting emotional.. on to the good stuff!  Today is release day!!  Yay! Hope you all enjoy  playing with our new friends!  Today I continued on my watercolor experiments and came up with this card:

Embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder and then used my Zig Clean Color markers in rainbow colors over it.  Achieved this look by applying clean water over the sentiment first then using my pens to add spots of color.  Love how it came out.  I'm totally in love with the watercolor pens!

After that, I colored up Kyana and cut her out.  Added some Wink of Stella to the ocean background for some added glitter.

Here's a better look at the watercolor emboss resist technique.

Check out the video here!

And don't forget to check out the DT's posts and comment!  We have a lot of prizes to give away this time, so don't miss out!  Be back soon to announce the winners of the Introductory posts!
