Giving thanks for your kindness...

It sounds like my sentiment is all about Thanksgiving and I suppose it is….but you know that giving thanks is not just a season - it is year round -giving thanks for life, love and family, to name a few.

Color Throwdown's challenge this week is just up my ever thankful alley!  Pinks and blues - or more aptly Hot Pink and Teal - woohoo!

I was ready to water-colour again and so I brought out my Zig Real Brush markers and Papertrey Ink's Bold Blossoms water-colour sheets.

I wet my paper and dipped in my brushes, letting the colour dry in between additions.  Such an easy way to get a fabulous result!

With the Wink of Stella clear pen, I added some shimmer - of course so much better in real life.  This pen is water based, so having a light hand is a must or your watercolour paints will move around - not what you want yikes!

My sentiment is from the Scripted Sentiment stamps and dies - it fit in the centre of those blossoms perfectly!!

Head on over to Color Throwdown and lay down YOUR colour!!
