I had so much fun playing with the Avery Elle liquid watercolors for the first time! I found them very beginner friendly, easy to blend and the color palette is YUM!

I made a quick video to share...

Its so elegant yet so classy card. Love the way how amazingly yuo changed the intense colors into the softer shades and yes they're super bendable. That sentiment is super kickass. Wink wink.🙂

I would love someone forever too if I got a card with this sentiment :-D And you cracked me up with the mint-to-be jogging suit bit!!! I'll be rocking it out in a hickory smoke jogging suit, but I won't be power walking... I'll likely be literally rocking in a chair in the old folks home, but doing something crafty no doubt.

What fun to see how beautifully these Avery Elle watercolors blend. Loved seeing you use them with your image simply stamped with matching Avery Elle pigment ink - That worked so well even watercoloring over i! Such a simple yet fun card. Can't help but smile with it!
