I finally have my Extravaganza and Free Shipping orders. So for this weeks Creative Cat Crew color challenge I made a watercolor sample for my watercolor make and take kit I plan to have on hand for card classes. I started with a watercolor base, then used the new watercolor pencils with the new stamp set I got just for this make and take. I am VERY pleased with the stamp set, it is called Hello Color. I am surprised how few Pinterest samples came up and most weren't even colored which seems like such a waste of a beautiful stamp. I hope to make some designs to encourage more use of this stamp set in the new year! I had to substitute the colors and blend to achieve a closest match. I used Bermuda Bay, Marina Mist, Basic Gray and Basic Black pencils and blended with the blender pen. Then I used Wink of Stella (I have an older fine point, but the brush applied carefully will achieve the same results). It is always difficult to capture Wink of Stella in a picture, but I managed to to so on the second picture. Here is our inspiration picture:

  This weeks color range is Basic Black, Basic Gray, Smokey Slate, Tempting Turquoise, and Whisper White.

I am entering this project in the following challenges:
