Create a Scene with Watercolors

Hello friends!

I am popping in with a quick post about watercoloring.
This new Some Bunny Special is absolutely darling and perfect for creating a cute scene!

Watercoloring is definitely soothing and therapeutic to do.  I love using Ganzai Tambi Watercolors 
( see here) as the mixing offers so many coloring possibilities. The large set of Ganzai Tambi Watercolors  is currently out of stock, but the 24 color set  offers great value and is a great alternative.

Like everything else, watercoloring takes a lot of practice. If you do not mind spending the time practicing, you will get really good result. As for me? I am always practicing. 😁

The key is to know when to add more water and when to stay dry. As long as you know the balance, you are good to go. I apologize that my "advice/tip" seems vague, but it really is a trial and error process.

 This card sure makes me feel that Spring is definitely in the air! Hope that you feel the same, too.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hearing birds singing in the morning tells me Spring is here. Darling card. I understand your water coloring tips. There is NO really right way -- simply trying, like most new things, is the only way to learn.

Your little bunny, standing on tiptoes on his over-turned pail, reaching into the mail box, is absolutely adorable! Your scene has me smiling!
