Heartfelt Watercolor Tag

This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries and I have been learning how to use watercolors as well as using ink pads and markers to add a watercolor effect on projects.  I am having so much fun using these techniques on different projects.  As I was waiting on another project to dry a bit, I decided that I wanted to use watercolor techniques to create this little tag for my husband.  It was made from a piece of left over Strathmore Watercolor Paper (90#) and Distress Inks.  Of course 3 Girl JAM ribbon finished it off beautifully.  It took just a few minutes to make and was the perfect compliment for a little "I love you" gift.

Items used:
3 Girl JAM Aqua Splash and Dress White crinkle ribbons
Strathmore Watercolor paper (90#)
Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress Inks
Tim Holtz Heartfelt stamp set
Sequins from Mainstays (Walmart brand)
Tim Holtz tiny attatcher
Memento Tuxedo Black ink

Don't forget that there is still time to enter the "Anything Goes with Ribbon" challenge at 3 Girl JAM.  You could win some delicious 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon for yourself.  Click on the ribbon names above to be taken directly to them in the 3 Girl JAM store.  These are perfect colors for summer crafting.

Are you interested in seeing a video about this sweet little tag or perhaps some more watercolor projects?  Head on over to DJ's Sundries to see what's going on over there.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
