I paired the new watercolors with the Best Buds set. I stamped them in pale ink before no line watercoloring. I actually started with negative painting to put in the background. 


I wanted to play with a few features from the watercolors in the card and see what it did or didn't do. The transparency is pretty amazing. Even for the darker colors. I didn't notice a whole lot of a chalky hue when I painted over a black line. 


I also wanted to check out it's lifting properties. Even after it's been dry for about an hour it still lifted pretty clean which is nice. However, it does reactive with Wink of Stella glitter. I know cause I needed some shine on those flowers :)  


I'm hoping to have a video up in a bit. Bear with me, I legit just flew home today. 

Video is together and girls trip story one is included. 
It's a long one, get the popcorn. 



Thanks so much for dropping by!
