Watercolours

Hi Everyone, my card today is for the 
you know me I'm a digi girl, but I pulled the stops out and used watercolour pencils to achieve this card, I even "real" stamped. I have limited stamping supplies, so used a silver embossing powder, I'm not sure it worked, but I went with it. I also stamped the sentiment. I used the stamping platform I have bought to help me with my stamping, I have never had a good result, so I hope this will help me.
bird and sentiment - freebie from magazine
dies - Tattered Lace pin dot 
gems - stash

I then went on to make a "watercolour" digital effort and this is it. Very different the centre panel is 3D'd.
watercolour background - Digilicious
branch and sentiment - Tiddlyinks
arrow shapes - ziggle designs by Kami
"embossed" shape - Chrissy W

Well, I'm very impressed with your pencil watercoloring (I'm w/c challenged myself!) Your coloring looks great, and the little bird is adorable. I think you've aced this pencil technique just as well as your PS digi work. Also loved #2 - very CAS, quite elegant. Looking forward to seeing more of your skills with this genre! TFS & Happy Easter.
