 Thanks to my incredibly artistic friend Carol Chiaramonte, I’ve gotten hooked on watercolor crayons and am having a wonderful time playing with them!  Her St Patrick’s Day card featured some feathers done with these wonderful tools and I just had to try them out for myself . . .

I like them because you have all the time in the world to draw with these – no fears about their drying out before you’re ready to stamp.  Drawing on rubber with crayons is surprisingly easy and involves a looser style than we anal types usually use.  This is a good thing.  So far, although I need a little more practice in knowing just how much water to mist the stamp with, the coloring part is just fine.  Yes, there’s always room for improvement but my point is that you’re gonna love what you get, regardless of how by-the-book your application is.  Pick up your watercolor crayons,  go back to kindergarten, and just scribble!
