Let me show you why I think colouring handmade cards with watercolour pencils is one of the BEST ways to add to your paper crafted designs.
Now, you might be saying to yourself…”watercolour pencils, hmmmm…I think I DO have some of those!”
I bet you do!
They’re one of those things you were shown at some point in your rubber stamping journey and you were amazed how versatile they were.
But then, something else fantastic came along and captured your interest…and they got put away, never to see the light of day again!
Well I’m on a mission to get you to pull them out and use them! And see just how gosh darn versatile they are!

Hi! Jo, I am watching this video in April 19th and unfortunately the water colour pencils are retiring. I wish I would have seen this video sooner. I do have a demonstrator here. My favourite card was the second card you had on the top.
Thanks, for this video. Joan
Joan, the one set, Assortment 1 is retiring, but being replaced with another one we’ll be able to get starting May 2nd – I think there were too many in the set that were retired colours! Excited to see them and play!
