There is a new release out today from Colorado Craft Company featuring more charming illustrations from artist Anita Jeram.
For today’s card project, I busted out the Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Pencils to paint this darling image. These pencils are so easy to use! You just need some water and a brush (or, be like me and just use a waterbrush!) and you’re good to go. Here is my tutorial showing you how I created the card:
Here is a closer look at the stamps I used today:

Jeane Campbell says
I am really liking this release but my favorite and now on my “must have list” is that Greener Grass. It needs to be in my stash. Every card that I have seen that it just adds so much. They are like doodles… but not like my doodles that look like scribbles.
Linda Jamme says
I watched your video this morning and loved the use of the Tim Holtz watercolor pencils. I have a couple but never tried them. Your card is so sweet. I love all of Anita Jerum’s images.
