Painted Posies 3 D

Painted Posies 2

My friend, Margaret, stopped by this week and saw a piece of Very Vanilla on my workspace that I had embossed with the Painted Posies embossing folder (page 177 AC).  She asked what I was going to do with it and I didn't have a good answer but it got me thinking ~ what was I going to do with that lovely design?  Later on I got out my watercolor pencils and my water painters to color in the design and this is what I came up with.  What do you think?

Abigail Rose

Abigail Rose would be a beautiful name for a darling little girl, wouldn't it?   In this case it is the title of a package of 12" x 12" designer series paper on page 131 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog.  Some of the designs invite you to color so last night I used my Watercolor Pencils (page 126 AC) and my Water Painters (page 129 AC) to color the bouquet below.  It is a simple technique coloring with the pencils and blending with water.  I primarily used the fine tip brush.  There are three in the package ~ 1 fine tip, 1 medium tip and 1 large flat brush tip.  If you try this technique send me a picture of your creation ~ I would love to share it here!
