Watercolored Jolinne

This week's MFT WSC challenge is to use watercolors.  During my last trip to El Paso, I took my watercolors for my mom and aunt to try out and they loved them!  I have to admit, although they are nice to use, I rarely ever use them.  It's just easier to whip out the copics and color away.  But for this challenge, I dragged out my twinkling h2o's and pearlescent water colors and colored up Miss You Much Jolinne. 

I'd been dying to try Ashley Cannon Newell's scrunched ribbon after seeing her tutorial, but everytime I made a card, I just forgot.  It's so easy to do and doesn't take up as much ribbon as I thought it would.  This technique's a keeper.

I managed to get a pic that showed all the sparklies that the h2o's and pearlescent watercolors added to my image.  I just love how sparkly and bright the colors look in real life.

That's it for today.  See ya later alligator!
