Happiness is a Watercolor Block Background

I've been creating and having so much fun my new Spectrum Aqua Markers. This is probably one of my favorites...

I used markers from the Primary, Floral and Nature sets. (Teal, Sea Green, Sunflower, Marigold, Rose Pink) Simply color the marker on a clear stamping block, mist with water and the press the block on watercolor cardstock. Allow each color to dry, before moving to the next layer and color.

Once all the ink was completely dry, I stamped a greeting and heat emboss in white.This stamp is from a wonderful Crafter's Companion stamp set called Sentimentals Memories are Made.

This card is EXTRA special to me because it's traveling around the world. Yep...it's been on the internet, on TV, and on display at craft shows. Cool huh?!! Here's a pic that the fabulous Nicky Hayden from our Spectrum Noir Design Team took while she was at a show at The NEC Birmingham in England:

Fun stuff! I have a bunch more to share in the days ahead...so stay tuned.
