Workshop Wednesday

Good afternoon all, 
hope you are having a lovely, sunny Thursday.
Another busy day here, 
but I have found time to take Tess and Eric for a long country walk. 

Yesterday it was our regular workshops in Hazel Grove and we had a play with watercolour pens. 
I used Spectrum Aqua Markers.

For our first card I used a combination of stamps from Lavinia and Hobby Art.
After all that is what us Crafters do at home isn’t it ? 
We stamped using VersaFine ink, 
Scribbled some colour using the pens onto a tile,  and then added some water and watercoloured the scene. 

The sentiment is also a Hobby Art Stamp.

Our second card had a different feel.

We stamped the poppy , added some ink around it, and then watercoloured the image. 
The splats were added at the end. 
I do love the simplicity of this design.
It also looks great with different coloured inks around the edges. 

We were treated in the morning to Easter Rocky Road and very yummy it was too.
Thank you so much Julie. 

Have you got any watercolour pens? If so , do you use them ? 
I think it is great to find a product that you haven’t used for a while, 
Get it out and have a play. 

Must go, 
Lunch time here.
Enjoy the rest of your day, 
and Mum , I will phone you later...

Love and hugs

Sounds like a lovely crafty day Jo. The cards are beautiful, nice Spring feeling. I love using my watercolour pens & do so quite often.
The weather has been gorgeous hasn't it? We've been sitting outside almost every day this week.
Keep safe, Keep well ((hugs)) xx
