Hi, it's Therese, and I am back with another edition of Take 2 with Therese. Today's post is special, as we are joining Kathy Racoosin for the Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop.
I am using the new Woodless Watercolor Pencils from Altenew and you will be able to see just how easy they are to use!
I chose the beautiful Kind Reminders Stamp Set as these flowers have that ‘watercolor' look. My first card is very clean and simple.
I added some Jet Black Ink splatters and a sentiment from the Celebrate Us Stamp Set.
To create my second card, I used the Simple Coloring Stencil, but you can watch the process in the video linked below.
This time, I used the Waterbrush Hello Die and a sub sentiment from the Hello and Hugs Stamp Set.
To see how I created these cards, you can watch my video here or watch it in HD on YouTube.

I like both of them but the second version for me was better. Both techniques were pretty effortless and seemed to go pretty fast. Rascal George says “hi” to Maggie.

Both versions are really pretty, but I do have a slight preference for the first one.
I am so excited to learn more about watercolors as I get into cardmaking this year! The wood free pencils are fascinating as a medium.
