How Do I Use my Watercolor Pencils?


Hey Stampers! A question I get all the time is, “How do I use my watercolor pencils in some new ways”? Today's project uses the Daisy Lane Stamp Set, Watercolor Pencils, and sponge daubers to create a colorful card, adding a white pencil for a unique effect. Although this is a birthday card, just use any sentiment you like.
