Hello and welcome here!  It's time to share some Teddy Bo & Co. inspiration.  This time I decided to watercolour a Paris scene.

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
This time I used Prima watercolours to colour my image.  The image is from the May Membership Collection.  I die cut the word 'wishing' using black cardstock.

Teddy Bo & Co. May Inspiration with Bea

Hello and welcome here!  It's time to share some Teddy Bo & Co. inspiration.  This time I have a discovery I want to share with you.

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
There was some conversation going on on the DT about whether or not you could watercolour a digital image.  If you can get your paper to go through your printer it might just work.  Here's what I did...I printed my image on watercolour paper, let it dry overnight and then hit it with my heat tool for added measure.  I didn't have any issue with the ink bleeding.  I have a Hewlett Packard inkjet printer, I had to help the paper get started feeding but once it started it was fine...I used Strathmore 140lb paper.  

 I used Distress Inks to colour my image.

Distress Inks Used:
Dress - Tattered Rose & Wild Honey
Fur - Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo & Wild Honey
Flowers - Faded Jeans
Background - Pumice Stone

Recipe:  Paper-not sure, sorry:(, My Favorite Things Inside/Out Stitched Ovals, Spellbinders Lacey Ovals, Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders, Bazzill CS-Mocha Divine, Strathmore Watercolour Paper Cold Press 140lb., Distress Inks, Foam Squares, Flowers.
