Watercoloring on Bristol Paper with Kelly Latevola

Hello Crafters! 

Merry Christmas eve! 
I can't believe tomorrow is Christmas! 
Are you all done or is one last trip to the store needed? 
I'll definitely be running out. Whenever I think I'm done there's always that one thing I forgot... 



I was inspired to get out the Holiday Baking set because my little peanut and I will be making cookies for Santa tonight. A little last minute? 
Maybe, but honestly if we made them earlier Santa wouldn't get any cookies! 


I wanted to try watercoloring on Bristol paper. This came about for two reasons. I bought a whole pad back when I wanted to try them with Zig Clean Color Markers and I ran out of watercolor paper. 
Maybe Santa will bring me some?

You can see how the card came together in the video below. 


What do you think? 
If you're a wet on wet watercolorist then I think it'll work fine. 
If you're a wet on dry watercolorist stick with the watercolor paper lol 



Thank you guys so much for dropping in! 
Have a Merry Christmas!
