Not long now until you will be able to purchase some of the gorgeous new products in the Spring Mini. I'm loving just about everything in this one, but my absolute favourite is Bloomin' with Beauty - the images are perfect for watercolouring.

I will admit that I was abit worried about how my watercolouring would turn out, but am rather pleased with the finished result. One way to really make your image pop off the paper is to do a small outline with gray ink - this is the first time I have tried this, but it won't be the last, as it really looks effective.

Stampset: Bloomin' with Beauty

Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Purely Pomegranite, Pretty in Pink, Watercolour Paper
