I have a tag to share with you today for Sweet Stamps' anything but a card challenge. I've been doing some watercoloring and loving it. There are so many ways to watercolor and it is so much fun.

I used various shades of peach, orange and brown watercolor paint to create the background for the tag. I embossed the piccolo frame and butterfly by dabbing them with enamel fluid and then sprinkling on the Shamrock Dreams and Aged White enamel powder and melt it with a heat gun. I used the leftover piece of watercolor paper and painted green metallic paint over the background and using the Fancy Leaf Sweet Cuts die to cut a couple of leaves to adhere them behind the frame. The final touch is the ribbon and button and bow to the top of the tag.

Paper: Watercolor Paper
Inks: Watercolor Paint (orange, peach, brown), DecoArt (Festive Green Metallic Paint)
Accessories: Sweet Stamps (Piccolos - Fancy Frames, Butterfly), Sweet Stamps (Sweet Cuts - Fancy Leaf), Melissa Frances (pearls), gold ribbon, SU (vintage buttons), CTMH (sunflower waxy flax)
