Watercolor Wonder Crayons-October Tech Class

For my October class we worked with the Watercolor Wonder Crayons. These are my favorite way to watercolor and are very easy to work with.
This card was basic watercoloring. Just stamp a lined image and use the crayons to color and then spread that color by using the aquapainter. I also added shadow around the image.
Stamp sets used: Crazy for Cupcakes on the card and Bloomin' Beautiful for the tech card.
Ink: Black StazOn
CS: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana, Close to Cocoa, and Watercolor paper
Accessories: Ribbon, Chunky Sprinkles, Crystal Effects, Aquapainter, WWCrayons

This card was done by coloring with the crayons directly on the rubberstamp. I LOVE the looks of this. Start with coloring your image with the lightest color you are using. Then keep coloring using colors lightest to darkest. Then spritz the image with water and stamp. Beautiful!!!
Stamp set: With Gratitude, Bella Toile
CS: More Mustard, Old Olive, Watercolor paper
Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: WWCrayons, gold brads, Riding Hood Red ribbon

Sooo, if you have the Watercolor Wonder Crayons you need to use them!!! And if you don't have them, you should really get them. *grins*
