Try It Out Tuesday #20 - Watercoloring!

Suzanne gave us one of my favorite challenges for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design Design Team Challenge blog, Follow Your Heart. She gave us water coloring, one of my favorite mediums to color with! Oh, I was happy as a clam!

I've wanted to present "Alexa", one of the new Victoria Case for SCACD, these adorable stamps exclusive at Susana's store. I love this little free spirit and she reminds me of my Nichole, all ready to take on a cause and give it her all. I think every family has one of those!

Alexa was stamped on watercolor paper with Staz-On in Jet Black and I used Tim Holtz distressed inks and reinkers to color her with. I love the watercolor effect and had such a great time painting her flowers. I used some Flower Soft, one of my favorite embellishments lately, and Smooch (love that stuff too!), and I just couldn't hold back my stickles! I used the sketch from MoJo Monday and this is one I know I'll use again!

Here's a close up of her tie-dyed top. I think it was perfect to watercolor! Such fun that was! Hope you enjoy this beauty.

And don't forget to go over the the Stamp Out Alzheimer's site. It's an important stamping event that offers a great way to raise money to fight this horrific disease that robs our loved ones of their wonderful memories and precious minds. This is a week filled with great sketches challenges, prizes and just a great way to use our craft to help raise money to rid us of this terrible disease and keep our loved ones with their memories as long as possible.

Alexa by Victoria Case for SCACD, Smooch, Flower Soft, Tim Holtz distressed inks, K&Company Designer Paper, Stickles, ribbon, Kaisercraft Rhinestones
