Happy Hello

Happy Tuesday everyone!
Today I had the opportunity to use Derwent Academy's Watercolour Pad, Derwent Academy Assorted Brushes and  Derwent Academy Watercolour Pencil Tin.  Using these items together made working with watercolour pencils much easier.   I'm a paper person and let me brag about the Derwent Academy's Watercolour Pad for just a moment, first, the paper is thick, acid-free and cold pressed.  The quality is amazing and the feel in my hand is great.  Using the Derwent Academy Watercolour Pad with the Derwent Academy Watercolour Pencil Tin made for an easy project.  The pencils, soooooo smooth!  Love these products.  They have now become a craft room staple.

Lately, I've been in the mood to create happiness.  I've partnered today with Derwent Academy and Xyron to create this Happy Hello card.  I must admit, I'm still learning to use watercolour pencils, but Derwent Academy makes it really easy.

Here are the supplies I used:

Derwent Academy Watercolour Pencil Tin
Derwent Academy Assorted Brushes
Derwent Academy Watercolour Pad
Xyron Creative Station with the 5-inch refill
White Cardstock cut to 5.5 X 8.5 inches, scored down the middle
"hello" cut using my personal cutting machine
1-inch circle punch
A small cup filled with water

1.  Create large circles using the Derwent Academy Watercolour Pencil Tin on the Derwent Academy Watercolour Pad.
2.  Wet one of the Derwent Academy Assorted Brushes with water and paint the circles.  Your circles will start to look like they are painted rather than written in pencil.  Let dry.
3.  Punch out 4 circles of each color using the 1-inch punch.  Remember the paper is a much thicker than cardstock, so this might take a little extra effort.
4.  Run the 'hello' and all 1-inch circles through your Xyron Creative Station.
5.  Fold white cardstock on the scored line
6.  Place the circles on your blank cardstock.
7.  Add "hello" on top of circles.
I hope you like this project, as much as I enjoyed creating it.  If you have watercolour pencils and feel a little uncomfortable using them, no longer be afraid, take them out, grab brushes and create something amazing.   I hope you have a great day, thank you so much for stopping by.
