Altenew Educators "Alphabet Name Game" Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

Hello and back to another blog hop with Altenew Educators and Friends! 
Wow, this hop is so amazing! Did you see what Pam did on her blog, its simply gorgeous! 

Since the challenge was to create with the first letter, I used easy peasy water coloring with embossing. I started by stamping my Inky Lily Stamp with Cool Summer Nights Oval Inks: Desert Night color. Then using the Artist Watercolors 24 Half Pan and water I added a bit of purple color. Using a small paint brush I was able to blend the colors and the ink together. Its easy peasy! I added some Pure White ink spray on top.   

Next is the beautiful Enchanted Vines 3D embossing folder, I did it on White 80 cardstock. If you look closely you will notice that bit of Deep Iris card stock to breakup all of the white. 

Finally are the finishing touches and the sentiment. I used the Sentiment Strips which is a personal fav of mine. The Cool Summer Nights enamel dots the perfect way to top any card off. 

I loved the new watercolors, in minutes I was able to give my floral a watercolor look and feel without al the fuss. I hope you like it. 

Up next is Terri and she is the queen of gorgeous things! IMHO! :)
