Watercolor Blog Hop

Happy Sunday!!
I'm here to play along with the Watercolor Blog Hop hosted by Pretty Pink Posh. What a fun hop! I'm enjoying hopping around looking at everyone's stunning water color creations!!
I have so much fun water coloring that I created a few cards, 2 that I'm sharing today.
I recently purchased some Zig Real Brush Markers, which would have been perfect for this but I have yet to receive them so both my cards I have water colored using Distress Inks.

I didn't realize how much my first card resembles the blog hop picture above!
So I used a water color brush and some distress inks to and just stroked the ink on, overlapping each other slightly. I used the Happy Birthday die from SSS to cut the Birthday sentiment and kept the negative pieces to adhere in place. I finished the card off my scattering some lovely Pretty Pink Posh sequins randomly on the card. 

And a cute baby card for my second creation.
 I used 3 different blue inks in the background to create an ombre look, Broken China Distress Ink, Marina Mist and Pool Party from Stampin up. I stamped my little teddy bear from the Nursery Deco stamp set from Mama Elephant on a separate piece of water color paper, colored in Distress Ink and fussy cut out to adhere on my card.
I of course also finished this card off wit some PPP sequins.
(All supplies below)

Hope you enjoyed my water colored cards! I sure enjoyed making them!
Have fun hopping along with the watercolor blog hop!!
