Create with Watercolors

Happy Friday!
I woke up super early this morning and worked on some school papers since my hubby and I are attending a Golden Apple event tonight. It is a time for educators to mingle and then "The Teacher of the Year" is announced. It's a big annual event to celebrate all the great teachers in our county.

I pulled out my new Gansai Tambi watercolors by Kuretake. I tried them at the Orlando Scrapbook Expo last year and just got my box of 36 colors for Christmas (got mine from Amazon). Oooh...these colors are so vibrant and you only need a smidget of the color. You should give them a try if you get the opportunity or think about adding them to your collection.

Create is by Miss Kate Cuttables and I cut it on my Cameo. It is part of a bigger file that includes a glue gun, paint tubes, and buttons. A few matching sequins were scattered on the rainbow background.
Other Materials:
watercolor paper
white, grey, red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet card stock
My Favorite Things stitched dies


Hope you have a fabulous day!
Stay Creative,
