Softpencil Blog Hop

Welcome to the Softpencil's first ever blog hop. Can you feel the excitement....???? The blog hop will begin at Softpencil blog and continue from there. If you have come from Anne-Katrine's blog then you are in the right place. If you have started here then you need to head to Softpencil to start the hop.
I love love love the way this card turned out. The image (of course) is a Softpencil image and our design element was to watercolour. Now I will admit - I do not know how to watercolour but this image was coloured in with inks and my SU blender pen. Tip for you: if you want to watercolour digital images then print off on the card that you are using and then spray with hairspray. I left this to dry overnight. The ink on the image didn't run which is fantastic.

The blog hop starts at 12am US EST (which is 2pm here) and will go for the whole day. The purpose of the hop is to celebrate Softpencil's first challenge - starting tomorrow at Paper Craft Planet.

Your next stop is over to Ashley's blog. Once you get back to Softpencil you have a chance of winning a Digi. Have fun. Thanks for stopping by.

Products: Softpencil digtial stamp; white card; SU Fifth Ave floral embossing folder (not available in OZ); Su blender pen & Real Red and Kiwi Kiss ink; SU Old Olive ribbon; SU Riding hood red and Kiwi kiss buttons.

I really like the clean and simple look - even though I'm sure all that coloring wasn't simple at all!

Ah ha!! Like Aqua Net or any ol' hairspray? I've sprayed a digi with hairspray before, but only let in sit for maybe 20 minutes. The magic trick is letting it set overnight, eh? Well, your creation is gorgeous, it looks great against a crisp white backing. Just Gorgeous!!
