MarkerPOP Challenge: Watercoloring Animals/People

Honey, I'm homeeeee!!!  Hi!  Today I'm popping in to share a fun watercolor card that I've created based on the newest MarkerPOP Challenge!  You are going to want to join us as there are some awesome giveaways going on, as well as some incredible inspiration all month long featuring watercoloring!!!  This time we are challenging you to watercolor animals or people...

And here is what I've created...

This card is featuring the Gerda Steiner Designs Koalafied Stamp Set.  This is a new to MarkerPOP Stamp Company, and they have some super cute critter sets!  I used my Distress Markers this time for watercoloring the critters and tree and then for my background I have used my Gansai Tambi Watercolor Set.  This set is a must have in my book, and the best thing is that it comes in several different sizes so you can buy to fit your needs!

For my card I have also used a mix of water on water technique and the dry to wet technique.  I love them both for various reasons.  The wet on wet is great for covering larger spaces quickly as well as for areas that you are going to layer color onto color.  The dry to wet technique is best for adding fine details, or for having more control over the watercolors themselves.

Now it's your turn!  Make sure you head over to the blog for full details, more inspiration, and giveaway goodness!
Happy Crafting!
