Challenge #55: Something New! (1/20)

This week the challenge is Something NEW for YOU!It could be new product, technique, fold, etc. Anything New! :-D

Our sponsors this week are:

So with this week being Something New, and I didn't get a new craft tool (shucks!), I thought I'd do a new technique. Well, new to me, anyway, I really had a lot of fun with it, too! Here it is:

 Using: Snow Drop by Ching Chou Kuik

Okay, so I know I didn't make this a snow project, but I totally had a different vision for her. And, really...that's okay! That's what crafting is all about! It's your project....let your crafty freedom ring! I can't remember the name of the exact name of the blue cardstock paper, but it is out of my scraps, made by Blue Fern. I purchased it from ScrapbookingwithMe Boutique. I printed my digital onto a Heavy Duty Vellum that I got from Paper Temptress. The flower in the top left corner is also the vellum, except that I colored it with TH distress inks to match as much as possible to the flowers in the digital. 

I turned the vellum over, then began coloring her. While the front looks fine, the back is something else! I'm glad I covered it with the reverse side of the Blue Fern! Haha! After I colored her, I just simply placed her inside the cut out and covered the back. This technique gives it more of a watercolor look...and I used Prismacolor pencils. Not the watercolor ones, but the regular ones you get at Hobby Lobby. 

I kept her simple because I didn't want to take away the watercolor effect. I hope you enjoy her, and that you join in on the challenge! We all love to see the great projects! It's really hard to choose each week!
