A quick post today as I’ve got my Mum visiting for a few days and I always like to make the most of her visits. I did want to share these quick and easy watercolor cards that I colored while I was at CHA though. I can’t travel without at least a little something crafty tucked away in my suitcase so I’d packed a travel set of Winsor & Newton half pans, a couple of brushes and a set of Watercolor Doodles.
When jet lag hit and I kept waking very early in the morning, at first I’d lay there trying to get back to sleep but when it escaped me I’d get up and make the most of the time with a little watercoloring by lamp light :D
On returning home I simply mounted the cards on Fog card bases on which I’d white heat embossed the Hero Arts Woodgrain set.
To finish I couldn’t resist a sprinkling of sequins along with a few white gel pen accents.
Well I’ve got a couple of days planned of wandering around galleries with my Mum, tea and cake stops, bit of shopping, nice lunch somewhere cosy to make up for the rain … I will be back here on Friday though with another watercolor post :D

So darling, Debby! LOve that bit of wood-grain embossing … but that’s no surprise, right?
Great cards. Love the watercolor!
I did the same thing when I was travelling recently Debby and it was a great idea. I took my fave Zigs to play with though. Love these sweet cards with the wg backgrounds. Thanks for sharing!
It is so nice to white emboss the background!
Hi Debby. I love all of your cards. I would love to see some more watercolor pencil videos. I have my own technique but people don’t do a lot of videos with these and I think it’s an under used product. You always get such beautiful soft images and would like to see more of your techniques in action. Thanks
