Everything is

                               fun with you.   

A few weeks back I picked up the Lawn Fawn set Love You S'more at my local stamp store.  I hadn't really used it until I saw the challenge on the  Lawnscaping Blog to use Watercoloring in your challenge.  

I used my watercolor pencils, after I found them on my daughters art desk and colored the background on 90# watercolor paper.  Made a mask for the moon and then used a paintbrush to blend the pencils.  I cut the banner out using SU Banners framelits dies.  I cut out the birdies and the limb and added them to the watercolored banner.  I then took a blue piece of paper and used the stars and whirlies from the Love You S'more set with Versamark embossing ink to make the background.  I ran the ribbon around the blue background paper, then sewed the banner to it and mounted it to my card.  I colored the moon in and then added sparkles to it and the blue area using a Sakura Clear Star gelly roll pen. 

The inside is stamped using the fun with you stamp.

I've been wondering how things work with watercolor pencils. I like your project. It looks great and gives me an idea of how it works.
