Essentials by Ellen Mix-it-Up Challenge #1:  Hero Art/Essentials by Ellen

This challenge uses at least one Hero Arts product and one Essentials by Ellen product.  I chose Hero Arts Cling  stamp- Spice Market Low Petal Background.  I colored the background with  Faber-Castell Aquarelle Watercolor pencils Blue and Red Mix and Match sets.  I went over the colored sections with a water color brush.  Not sure the textured side of the Tim Holtz Watercolor paper was the best choice.  I do like using pencils — I am going to play around with them more

The sentiment is an Essentials by Ellen die.  I cut out the die three times and glued the layers together.  I heat embossed the top layer with Wow White Pearls Superfine.
