Seven Things to do with Watercolor

I used my watercolor pencils on my February Stamp of the Month sample card and my March sample (I'm into the look!!).  Jill from Close to my Heart shows us seven ways to use watercolor paint.  What she shows is just the tip of the iceberg for watercolor paints!

Jill mentions using the paintbrush set.  You might prefer to use our line of waterbrushes instead.  Those work too.  Think ideas rather than specific projects as you watch.  Some product is retired, but the ideas are still good!

General Supplies for these projects:
Z2045  All-Purpose Mat (love this!  Makes clean up a snap.)
Z3188  Paintbrush Set (you could go with the line of waterbrushes if you prefer
Z3224  Small Round
Z3225  Medium Round
Z3226  Medium Flat
Z3132  Watercolor Paper (regular White Daisy doesn't absorb quite as well, but it is an alternative)
Z3167  Cricut Artistry Collection

Project 1: Striped Card
Z3167  Artistry Collection page 13 for the diamonds, cut at two sizes, page 1 for speaker bubble

Project 2: Feel Better Soon Card
Z3167  Artistry Collection page 34 for the banner, page 43 for the circle
retired stamp set - could use B1543 Get Better

Project 3:
Z3167  Artistry Collection page 8

Project 4:  Heart Background Layout  (pause the video at 5:24 to get a good view of the layout)
Z3167  Artistry Collection page 27 for the heart.  Jill was mistaken saying the hearts was an overlay.  The heart overlay was created by adding enough hearts to fit the 10.5" x 10.5" paper.
