I used 140 lb Strathmore Watercolor paper and retired Stampin' UP! Watercolor crayons. I wish Stampin' UP! still sold these watercolor crayons they are fantastic. I love to use my brush and pull a little color off the bottoms of the crayons, they are just perfect for that and the colors are so lovely. I used Stampin' UP! Cardstock as well as GinaK Pure Luxury white cardstock for the base. And of course one of my favorite retired Stamp Sets from Stampin' UP! Summer by the Sea.
Happy Birthday John!!!
