DIY - Peerless Water Color Palette

Who hasn't noticed how popular water colors are right now? Everyone is using them and it's actually a trend that I jumped right on…mainly because I love to paint! Now…to be honest I am no Picasso. I just like to swirl the color around with the paint brush and see what happens. (And maybe color a stamped image.) And these Peerless water colors are gorgeous! 

I have had a lot of fun using these water colors but I had some issues painting with them in their original packaging so I decided to create my own palette for these paints. Please check out what I made in this video.

Once I had that done, it was much easier to use the paints. I was enjoying it so much that I sat down and created two new cards. This first one shows you that gorgeous blue color that I talked about in the video.

Here's a close up of those beautiful colors...

I was a little worried that the dark color I used on the flowers wouldn't work but I think it's a great contrast with the light blue sky. 

Then I decided to try a completely different color combo…

I painted on some water color paper first, creating that background using the yellows, oranges and a little pink that I have…then I die cut the tag and completed the card. That fantastic die is from Pretty Pink Posh and can be found here if you are interested. (It's also available at Ellen Hutson and Simon Says Stamps…two of my fave online stores.) I should also mention that the sequins used in both these cards are also from Pretty Pink Posh. :) 

Hope you enjoyed the cards and are having a wonderful day!
