A froggy thank you

This was my prototype for a card we made in camp in July.  I simplified it a bit for camp, substituting the wonderful 1/2″ Poly-Stitched Ribbon in Pear Pizzazz for the faux suede strip you see here.

Have you every used the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Paper for … watercoloring?  It’s a bit pricey, but it’s so easy to move color around.  It can take a lot more water than Whisper White or Very Vanilla, so you can remove color more easily.

I recently read some tips on coloring on another demonstrator’s blog.  She gave this rule:  when your work is wet, applying more color with an Aqua Painter will actually remove or lighten the color; adding color to dry paper will deepen the effect.
