3 Clover's Thursday Challenge #5-Use It Up!

This week over at 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge #5 is to Use It Up! Use 2 different papers that you have had in your stash for at least one year!

Well, I have had this in my stash for over a year and it is still one of my favorite DP's! ( I even bought more) For those of you new to my blog, I work at a cherry processing plant in HR, so I always collect cherry stuff!

I finally unearthed my SU! watercolor paper I ordered well over a year ago and promptly lost (hey, this counts as paper over a year old too!) I used my SU! watercolor crayons, H2O's and water pen to color this image. Watercoloring is my favorite medium...but when someone else does it. The delicate layering in watercoloring just makes me happy!

Stop over at Kerry's blog and join in the fun this week!

Stamp: Penny Black Cherry Jubilee 1686K, SU Flexible Phrases-retired

Cardstock: Real Red, Green Galore, DP by Creative Imaginations

Ink: Memento Black (did not work well for watercoloring darn it), SU watercolor crayons and H2O's

Misc: SU green ribbon, circle punches

Card size: 5 x 5

I made this card with the same paper last year.

Pin It!
